Bottles for Babies is a recycling program created by Francesca Chase and her son Myles to benefit local babies in urgent need of baby food and diapers. There are approximately 2000 children in West Los Angeles that desperately need our help. Francesca has partnered with the Westside Food Bank located in Santa Monica for distribution of all donated items.
How Bottles for Babies works:
Save your plastic recyclable bottles in a separate bag from other recyclables. All bottles must have the recycle triangle ♲ and 5¢ or 10¢ CA CRV on the label. Once a month, on a scheduled day, the Bottles for Babies Team will pick up the bags from your residence and/or donation sites. The team uses the proceeds from the recyclables to purchase baby food and diapers, which is then donated to the Westside Food Bank.
