Or How to Transform Yourself from a Tireless Bottom Wiper into a Smug Do-Gooder in 3 Easy Steps
Being a mama requires multiple levels of skill. Now you can add upcycling to your list of talents.
Upcycling might sound like the latest fitness craze but fear not, there’s no need to
wobble strut around town in biker shorts.
I learned about upcycling on Monday at a blogger presentation on Wipe Out Waste – Johnson’s Baby’s new campaign in partnership with an organisation called Terracycle.
The campaign goal is to help manage the problem of empty wipes packets that although recyclable, wind up as landfill.
Terracycle specialises in transforming recyclable waste into new products – like this Johnson’s Baby bib. And with every collection, Terracyle will donate to a registered charity or school (including nurseries and children’s centres) of your choice.
How it Works
1. Collect your empty Johnson’s Baby Wipes packs (actually any brand will do).
2. Register online, download a pre-paid label and send in your empty packs to TerraCycle.
3. TerraCycle will upcycle the packs and credit a charity of your choice with 2p for each approved item received.
Why not get together with some mum friends in your ‘hood, at school or playgroup to collect wipes packets in bulk and raise good money for a worthy cause?
The Johnson’s Baby presentation was held at members’ club Maggie & Rose, where afterwards the mum bloggers and their kids got down to an upcycling craft session.
Jed wasn’t that keen although he warmed up after Heidi, the play supervisor, donned a paper cape and mask and flew around the room.
What a super trooper.
