Tereson from FuzziBunz lives in Louisiana and has seen the onslaught of the spill firsthand. Realizing that the absorbent inserts and prefolds we are all familiar with could help affected wildlife, she came up with the idea of Cloth for the Coast. Working with local organizations, FuzziBunz is collecting diapering items that can help to clean oil off of wildlife.
Currently, Cloth for the Coast is collecting:
microfiber towels and inserts
It looks as if there may be more collection opportunities for diapers and items with snaps and velcro. These items will be donated to families affected by the spill. For the animals, though, the donated items must be free of velcro and snaps.
Learn more and get the latest updates at Cloth for the Coast's Facebook page. To help the effort, Snooty Booty Diapers is collecting these items and sending them in one large package. You can drop them off locally or send them in. For each item you donate to Snooty Booty's box, you'll receive $1 in store credit, up to $5 (per household, one time credit only). Use the contact form above to arrange an drop-off or find out how to send them to me.
I feel a little better knowing I can do something to help, even if it's small gesture. Hopefully, our donations will go a long way to helping the animals affected.
