The Good Fund is the brainchild of Emily from Raising Ziggy and Kimberli from MyCup NZ. They wanted to encourage Kiwis to make the switch to reusable products, for both the positive impact financially, and environmentally. Initially The Good Fund menstruating people access reusable menstruation options, but the plans were always to expand. Now, we're also supporting Kiwi families to start using reusable cloth nappies.
Cost and choice. These are the two common barriers that cause people to overlook cloth nappies as ‘too hard’. Together, Bear & Moo and The Good Fund aim to smash those barriers, offering a Top Quality Bear & Moo start pack, and reimbursing 50% of the cost. Why cloth nappies? Over the course of a baby's nappy journey, a person can spend an average of $3000 – $4000 on disposable nappies. These products are not only unsustainable on a community level, they are also polluting our environment. When you use just 1 cloth nappy a day, then from birth to toilet training you prevent over 1000 nappies from entering our landfill, and save close to $450. Who qualifies for our help? Anyone currently using disposables, and wanting to switch to cloth nappies! To apply, visit https://www.thegoodfund.co.nz/apply-now-nappies/
