As a Zero Waste Milk Bank, we reuse our boxes so they can look like they've seen better days. Our foil liners that hold milk are cleaned and sanitized.
We are reducing our impact on our environment for the future of our babies!
Donor Box Reuse
Read our blog to learn about Tasha's experience donating her extra breast milk!

"We are so happy to be able to pass our milk on to those babies who most need it and otherwise would not have it, because we know this milk can help make life a bit smoother, easier, healthier, and less stressful for these babies and their families. It means so much to us to know that so many babies out there living through such already challenging times might now grow up a bit happier, healthier, and stronger because of our donations. Our chest freezer is finally nearly empty,
but our hearts are very happy and full."
