11,000 tons of disposable diapers are thrown away each year in Marion County. And yet at the same time, 1 in 3 families are unable to afford diapers regularly.
Salem Cloth Project's Cloth Diaper Assistance Program provides free cloth diaper kits to individuals that would not be able to afford them otherwise. Our goal is to help reduce diaper need, increase financial equity and provide more sustainable and healthy options for families.
A donation of $10 will provide someone with two cloth diapers and remove 730 disposable diapers from the waste stream. A donation of $100 will provide someone with an entire cloth diaper starter kit and remove over 2,000 disposable diapers from the waste stream.
