Sustainable Services

Free cloth diaper programs, menstrual hygiene initiatives, diaper service options, and cloth diaper rentals comprise a majority of our programs as we empower individuals to take control of their basic needs.

Through our support programs, we save anywhere from $200 a year in menstrual hygiene products to $3,000 in diaper expenses.

Our environmental impact leaves over 2,000 pounds of waste out of the landfills per baby, and over 360 tampons out of the landfill per year.

Educational Programs

Education is essential in the process of empowerment. PDR is continuously working to improve our two educational programs: PDR University, a professional-based online course for organizations interested in launching their own cloth diaper program, and PEP Talk Series, an education resource hub for parents and caregivers of young children.

Our partner, Gifts from Liam, utilizes PDR’s Diaper Support program in their parallel mission to educate and provide sustainable resources to families in their community.

Support Us

Just $10 a month means 1.5 emergency diaper assistance kits a year, or 6 women permanently covered during their menstrual cycles. $10 a month is the difference between a clean bottom and a dirty bottom at the end of a pay period; $10 a month is the difference between six women at home due to lack of adequate hygiene versus active engagement at school or at work.
