Donating Cloth Nappies
When you have reached the end of your nappy journey, please don't throw your nappies away! Your nappies can go on to a new life on more little bottoms, further reducing the environmental impact of their production.
At The Nappy Lady™ we come across families in need of nappies but not the funds to buy them. We have had cases where food banks have contacted us for donations for families. We also regularly get approached by charities for overseas orphanages in desperate need of nappies.
If you have finished with your nappies, we can sort it out for you. All you need to do is post them to us at the address below and we will make sure they go onto a good home. The nappies must have elastics that are still working with good stretch and any waterproof covers must also be intact and not leaking. The charities we work with do not have the resources to repair nappies at this time. If your nappies have reached the end of their useful life, many local authorities will accept them as textile recycling, which would still avoid them from going into landfill.
Update January 2023: We have received many generous donations recently, so we are not able to accept any more donations of cloth nappies for the time being. Please keep an eye on this page for future updates.
Below are some of the photos we received of our donated nappies being used at The Nest Home in Nairobi in 2018
