Giving Back: Changing Diapers and Planting Trees 2017

Since 2016, Diaper Dabbler has been planting trees with our friends at One Tree Planted. Based on sales of our eco-friendly Mother Earth Diaper Variety Package, we donate the funds to plant trees. This is one small way we, as a business, can give back to our Earth.

Planting trees is one part of a broad focus on environmental responsibility. You can read more about our environmental commitment here.

Drumroll please...

In 2017 Diaper Dabbler planted 36 trees! Thanks to our partner One Tree Planted, my hands didn't even get dirty while doing it.

Thanks for coming along for the ride. I can't wait to see how many trees we can plant in 2018! 

Do you want to help plant more trees? You can order a Mother Earth Diaper Variety Package for a new parent you know.

Giving Back: Dollars for Diapers

*Update*

Diaper Dabbler donated 16 sample packs of diapers to the Fox Cities Diaper Bank during the Dollars to Diapers Campaign. We are so pleased to give back to the community that we live and work in.

This is my favorite donation helper:

Donate Diaper Sample Packs 

 

Diaper Dabbler has a strong commitment to giving back. We can be found planting trees to save the world, donating to our local diaper bank or volunteering with our favorite cloth diaper charity. It is one of our major ways to give back to the community that cares for and supports us.

         
The month of September is the annual Dollars for Diapers campaign in my local community. National Diaper Need Awareness Week falls on the last week of this fundraiser. Our Fox Cities Diaper Bank receives the donations from this event which help them provide diapers to 900 local children per month.

    
Babies without diapers and parents that have to make the choice between food and diapers breaks my mama heart. And I can help in a small way.

    
During the month of September, Diaper Dabbler will be donating one sample pack of diapers for every Diaper Variety Package sold.

If you would like more information about the campaign, you can contact the Fox Cities Diaper Bank directly or read the newspaper article about the Dollars for Diapers campaign. Please consider making a donation to your own local diaper bank (or mine!) during this Diaper Need Awareness week/month.

     
We’ll post our results on the blog and on social media.

Giving Back - 17 Trees Planted

Giving Back - 17 Trees Planted
Disposable diapers are a huge drain on our environment, am I right? But seriously, the whole world is not going to ditch convenience to help out Mother Earth a little. So, what to do?!
As a business owner, I try to do my part. I recycle where I can and I'm working towards using recycled packaging for my products. 
As a mom, I teach my kids about the environment and we use eco-friendly products and practices at home. But is it ever enough?
In 2016, Pregnant Chicken published a blog post Baby Gifts that Give Back, and it was like lightning! I could do something awesome and make a difference. The idea was born.
I like the idea of planting trees, because, well, I like breathing. Also, the Lorax. It was a pretty easy choice. 
Enter in our fantastic partner, One Tree Planted. Matt makes it super-simple to donate money to plant a tree. Easy. Here’s a dollar, there’s a tree. And there is no dirt under my fingernails. You can even pick where you want your tree planted. But they won’t come plant it in your back yard, sorry.

Midway through 2016 I got things up and running with Project Give Back and decided that we’d plant one tree for every Mother Earth eco-friendly diaper variety pack sold from here on out. It’s a win-win. New parents get to sample environmentally friendly diapers (saving the world), and Diaper Dabbler plants a tree (saving the world again).
So, for 2016 we planted 17 trees. It might not sound like much, but it’s a start. You have to start somewhere.
