The Nappy Collective is a brilliant initiative that sees leftover disposable nappies being collected and redistributed to organisations that support families in need. Rather than ending up in landfill, thousands of nappies make their way to the women and children who need them most.

Twice every year, for two weeks, collections run in major cities across Australia. During the May collection the Nappy Collective counted their 1,000,000th nappy.

Next collection: October 14th to 28th, 2016

All nappies collected in Western Australia will stay in Western Australia, with ten charitable organisations receiving local donations including Horizon House, the Aboriginal Alcohol and Drug Service, Patricia Giles Centre, Pregnancy Assistance and Unitingcare West.

The next collection will run in October 2016 with more than 30 drop-off points across Perth. Details about drop-off locations will be announced in September. It is easy to make sure that your unused nappies help make a difference.

The Collective is entirely run by volunteers, including the boarders at Penhros College who donate their time to help sort the thousands of nappies collected each year.

How can you help?

Donate nappies Look in your cupboards and drawers and pull out the unused nappies your child has grown out of. Deliver them to one of the 30 drop-off points across the city.

Be a local drop-off point Put the call out to your playgroup, mothers group, neighbours or school and ask friends to drop their unwanted nappies at your place.

Volunteer your time Help is always needed with sorting and packing.

Register your business to be a public drop off point You will need to provide collection and storage space during the collection and then deliver the nappies to the sorting centre. Register your business for an upcoming nappy drive here..

Donate nappies online If you no longer have nappies at home but still want to help, you can make a regular or one-off donation online here
