    Default The Nappy Drive

    Bubhub is proud to support and help with the Nappy Collective's drive to help donate unused or leftover nappies to help families in need. Do you have left over nappies?

    I though I would put this in the 'challenge' section to see how many we can come up with

    There’s a small pile of large nappies sitting under the change table in my baby’s room.

    They are way too big for her – they are the six nappies leftover from when my eldest two stopped wearing nappies at night.

    Not sure why I didn’t just let them have three more nights in nappies so I could get use out of them. I guess when kids tell you they don’t need nappies at night anymore you act straightaway.

    So I will get use out of these six nappies. It might be a few months yet but the baby will fit in them soon enough.

    But what happens when I have another small pile leftover when she’s toilet trained? Does this sound like you? Do you also have a small pile of leftover unused nappies? Maybe a heap of newborn nappies that your little one grew out of quickly.

    Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones whose toddler toilet trained easier and earlier than you anticipated. If so, I’m jealous.

    Anyway – there’s a thing called The Nappy Collective and all of us with leftover nappies can now donate them to people in need.

    The Nappy Collective runs three drives a year and they supply nappies to a growing list of more than 40 organisations that support families in crisis or in need.

    The most recent drive, in August, saw parents around Australia collectively donate more than 81,468 leftover unused nappies in two weeks. Most of them would otherwise have ended up in landfill.

    The Nappy Collective founder Sandra Jacobs says there is an urgent need for material aid for mothers fleeing family violence.

    “Donating unused nappies assists these families to focus on longer term, deeper care of their children by relieving them of short-term challenges and stress,” Sandra says. “We aim to make it simple and easy for many people to help struggling families in need through collective giving.”

    The Nappy Collective’s biggest drive ever is now underway with 130 drop off points in 11 cities across Australia.

    We are proud to help support this initiative so ifyour nearest nappy drop-off point is too far away then we are happy to collect any nappies from rural or regional Australians who’d still like to support this worthy cause. We’ve started a forum thread on how you can send us your leftover nappies so that everyone can take part in the drive.

    Wish I knew about this when I had an abundance of newborn nappies left over, what a great initiative!

    Are there any restrictions: unopened packs only or similar?

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I've got a lot of unopened sample packs that I wasn't sure what to do with. Now I do 👍

    nope - can be half packs, or just a few. whatever.

    If you are not close to a dropoff point, if you pm me I can give you the address of the bubhub office to post them.

    I saw this on Wednesday, what a great idea! I managed to round up a big shopping bag of new born nappies to donate (went a bit nuts trying lots of brands) and it gave me an excuse to get out of the house to drop them off!

    I was left with a huge bunch of toddler size nappies after the 15th odd attempt at toilet training was finally successful (to my eternal relief)
