What is Mom's Store Nepal?
Mom’s Store Nepal (MSN) is a social enterprise aims at encouraging people on opting sustainable practices. It receives clothes or items donated and put it into re-use eliminating them going into landfills. MSN receives donation of following items that are still in good condition:
•Any material useful for baby care
What do we do with donated items?
MSN's aim is to circular these pre-used items for the benefit of the environment and community. People often ask if such items can be given to to the needy ones for free of cost. However, MSN realizes that it is difficult to define and find the needy ones who guarantees of re-using them’. Therefore, the goal is to make these pre-used items available for a purchase in a low price for anyone (especially who can not afford buying new clothes for their rapidly grown kids each month) and who is willing to love them again and contribute in stopping these items from going into landfills.
What do we do with the revenues generated from sales of these donated items?
The revenue generated through sale is mobilized to to meet the operational cost such as pick up the donated items from the donors’ place, laundry cost, storing and other expenses made on logistic and other arrangements for making pre-used items look fresh and usable again so that the service becomes sustainable itself. Left over amount will be invested in awareness generation to the public on promoting sustainable practices.
