Doing their fair share
Thanks to WeeCycle, the gear new parents need won't break the bank
Jayme Ritchie’s WeeCycle, an organization that weecycles (get it?) the baby gear that a family with older kids no longer needs and gets it to the new parents who need it most. Through WeeCycle, you can get a used stroller for your new kid, or a used crib, or a used (just about) anything. While easing the burden on new parents is Mission One, Ritchie and WeeCycle are also in it for the planet. Baby gear often gets used and thrown away, clogging landfills with completely usable and useful equipment. It’s a simple idea: uniting community around the cost of child-rearing in a clear and easy way. It’s great because it’s almost universal. Chances are good that most of us could use an organization like WeeCycle one day. And even if we don’t, we’ll know a kid who deserves a safe car seat, a crib to sleep in, and parents who need the support.
