The Detroit Area Diaper Bank is pleased to welcome Jessica Roland on board to lead an exciting new project, a recycling program for diaper and wipes packaging as part of the TerraCycle Huggies Brand Brigade®.
Every year, millions of pieces of plastic diaper and wipes packaging end up in the garbage and then landfills. As an eco-friendly innovator, TerraCycle can convert plastic waste diaper and wipes packaging into unique products. The Detroit Area Diaper Bank is now an official collection location for the new diaper and wipes packaging recycling brigade, so each approved plastic diaper or wipes packaging we send in — ANY brand, ANY size, baby through adult — is worth a $.02 donation to The Detroit Area Diaper Bank!
The Diaper Bank is going to work with its recipient partners to reclaim as much packaging from the diapers we distribute to them as possible, it’s a great opportunity for the organizations we support and the families they support to support us in return. We’ll also welcome donations from across the community, and look forward to opportunities to build new relationships with individuals, organizations and businesses as we offer the opportunity to recycle their diaper and wipes packaging and ask for their ongoing support for the Diaper Bank through this unique program.
We’re excited to have Jessica as our TerraCycle Brigade Leader, she’s a great fit for the Diaper Bank, she has vision, big ideas and the skills to see things through and make things happen. A mother of two, she lives in Canton with her husband Chris, has worked in the nonprofit sector previously and has been an active member and leader of numerous community-focused organizations including Canton Area Moms 4 Community, the Canton Newcomers Club and her children’s school PTO.
Jessica is a doer and we like doers at the Detroit Area Diaper Bank! Welcome, Jessica! Thanks for taking the lead on this project and helping the Diaper Bank continue to grow and make a difference across Metro Detroit!
