Weyerhaeuser Teams with World Vision
for 2nd Annual Operation Diaper Drive
A CRYING NEED
- Safety net programs like Food Stamps or WIC DO NOT cover the cost of diapers.
- Most day care centers require a full day’s supply of disposable, not cloth, diapers.
- Disposable diapers cost up to $150 per month per baby.
THE BOTTOM LINE
- Infants require up to 12 diapers a day; toddlers about eight.
- Disposable diapers are one of the most requested items in food banks and shelters.
- Babies kept in wet, dirty diapers for extended periods of time are more likely to experience irritation and discomfort, cry more, and suffer from worse diaper rash. They also are at risk of abuse.
- For sanitary reasons, most laundromats do not allow cloth diapers.
Weyerhaeuser employees once again are partnering with humanitarian organization World Vision to collect disposable diapers for babies in need across the U.S. and Canada. Employees donate the diapers and World Vision distributes them through local charities.
IF YOU COULD AFFORD ONLY ONE
Would you buy groceries, pay an electric bill, or buy diapers for your baby? In the last three years, 5.9 million American babies were born into poor or low-income families, and many parents today face difficult decisions about providing basic needs such as diapers.

IT’S A NATURAL FIT
Our Cellulose Fibers business uses a renewable resource to produce biodegradable fluff pulp that is used in many of the diapers sold today. We’re proud of our proven track record in managing forests on a sustainable basis to make products essential to everyday lives.
WE CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITIES
We invest in our communities because when they grow stronger, we all benefit. But it’s not all about money. Our caring employees also have a long history in volunteering their time and talent to better the communities where we operate. We are all proud to partner with friends such as World Vision to sustain the quality of life in our communities.
