Share the Love will now ship free cloth diapers directly to families in need!
“When my first baby was born, we were choosing between groceries and disposable diapers. A friend gave me cloth diapers. Her gift enabled us to buy food for our family while easing the burden of diapering our baby. Not too long later, I started a business and, for nearly 18 years, we’ve been working to make cloth diapers readily available to every family everywhere,” said Jennifer Labit, Cotton Babies founder and CEO.
What is Share the Love?
We started Share the Love in 2012 with the mission of ending poverty and diaper need in communities. As many as 1 in 3 families have an insufficient supply of diapers. Volunteer hosts throughout the country accept donations and distribute the cloth diapers to families in their area. Our consistent, scalable framework helps sustain communities. In order to reach families who do not have a host nearby, we are thrilled to be offering the option to ship diapers. Delivery fees will be the exact shipping cost plus a small handling fee. Diapers will vary based on availability, but most families will receive a loan of 15 cloth diaper changes to be used through their baby’s 3rd birthday. Besides providing the cloth diapers, Share the Love teaches families how to care for and use cloth diapers.

Replacing disposable diapers with cloth diapers can save a family thousands of dollars. That money can be used on food, childcare, utilities and more. For struggling families, it can have a life-changing impact.
As a company that specializes in reusable products, we are proud that Share the Love extends the use of cloth diapers it manufactures and keeps them out of landfills. Rather than getting tossed into the trash, these diapers can go on to help other families.
