If you’re like me, you have a few breast pumps hanging around. After 3 breastfed babies (and 1 on the way) I’ve used a few pumps. What do we do with breastpumps once we are done with our breastfeeding experience? Recycling has become a pretty common activity in our everyday lives. We recycle at home, we recycle at work, we even have recycling bins on the streets now! But what about the bigger items that we no longer need? Take for instance, breastpumps.
Introducing Medela Recycles
Medela has heard the voices of moms and taken the initiative to create Medela Recycles. Medela Recycles is a program which takes our old breast pumps and uses each one to support the donation of new hospital-grade, multi-use breastpumps to Ronald McDonald House Charities. Moms who have babies who need to stay in the NICU get breast pumps while in the hospital but once their time is up they often move over to stay at a Ronald McDonald House without a pump. Medela wants to help change that. Medela wants to give moms one less thing to worry about in an already stressful time.
Sending your used pump to the Medela Recycles program is free and lets you properly recycle your pump plus you get the bonus of knowing you are helping to support other moms on their breastfeeding journey.
