Grobag Drive with St Kilda Mums

St Kilda Mums are a volunteer-powered charity based in St Kilda, Melbourne, who rehome new and pre-loved baby goods and nursery equipment to families in need.

They are looking for Grobags to include in their Baby Linen Sets to encourage safer infant sleep.  If you have a Grobag that you no longer use and that is good condition, we would like to encourage you to donate it today.

There are over 12,000 families in need of our support. Every child deserves a safer, more comfortable place to sleep and together with your help we can make this happen.

"Our vision is a future where we waste less, share more and care for every child. The Gro Company are helping us achieve this by encouraging the recycling of preloved grobags. Thank you!" Jessica Macpherson, CEO St Kilda Mums

"Every child deserves a safe sleeping environment. Grobags are a safe option for babies to sleep in as they eliminate the need for bedding like sheets and blankets - reducing the risk of suffocation - and help to keep baby at a safe temperature." Melanie Courtney, CEO Kidsafe VIC.

Gro will be donating approx. 100 grobags on the 28th of November to the St Kilda Mums warehouse, help us spread the word and get people donating to help support this great cause. You can follow this journey via our Instagram page @TheGroCompanyAUS #grobagdrive.

Your donation can WIN you a brand new Grobag of choice, so please share your donation with us via #grobagdrive and we will select one lucky donator every month to WIN. (ends 31st December 2018)
