recycle baby

so the title might be a bit misleading, but i wanted to make sure that everyone i know (or at least the 5 people who actually read this blog) knows about this great program from one of my favourite baby websites.

i know as friends we all love to use and reuse and share all sorts of baby stuff, however, there comes a time that the item has just reached it's end of life. i usually take something like that to goodwill or salvation army. but here is another alternative - recycling (in the true sense of the word). check it out:

"Babies grow up quickly and your beloved car seats, strollers, swings and highchairs end up as junk, collecting dust in the garage. Sadly, many of these items are thrown away, ending up in landfills. Well, not anymore. That’s why we’ve launched BabyEarth RENEW, a hassle-free baby gear recycling program.

The program is simple. If you’re done with your car seat, stroller or high chair, send it to us. We’ll make sure everything is properly disassembled and all usable parts are sent to accredited recycling centers. For example, fabrics will be shipped to developing countries, and metal, plastic and foam will be used for construction projects. In the spirit of renewing, if the item is in excellent condition it will be donated to and enjoyed by another family who needs it.

How it works
You pay shipping costs. We take care of the rest.

Special Gift! In honor of proving you’re a smarty pants, we’ll email you a $5 off coupon to use the next time you shop with us.Just type your email address here then
print this packing slip and include it with your recycled item. When we receive your item, we'll email the coupon to you.
