Green Kids Giveaway!

Added on 01 November 2010

Green Kids pocket nappies have a great reputation, are a favourite of many and they're made right here in Australia!

So we thought we'd give you a bit more information about them and give you the chance to win one of your very own.

All Green Kids nappies have the same flexible one size pocket design but they come in three styles. They all have an inner layer made from soft suedecloth which keeps your baby’s skin dry.
Anytimes come in a range of colours and are suitable for day or night. The outer layer is made from polyester PUL (100% polyester laminated with polyurethane), which is both waterproof and ‘breathable’.
Funtimes come in a great range of prints for showing off and are recommended for daytime use. They are not suitable for longer periods of time or overnight. The outer later is made from cotton PUL, which is both waterproof and ‘breathable’.
Minkytimes are made with an outer layer of buttery soft, waterproof Minky fabric. Minkytimes are perfect for use during the day, especially for showing off! They are also fantastic for use at night for even the heaviest wetters. These nappies are a luxurious addition to your nappy stash.

Darlings Downunder spoke to Sasha at Green Kids and asked her a few questions about her fantastic business:

How and when did Green Kids start?
Green Kids began in 2004 when my sister in law, Ruth, and I had both given birth to our bubs within a couple of weeks of each other. We were both environmentally conscious and didn't like the idea of using disposables. At that stage, there weren't very many cloth nappy options in Australia, so we set about designing nappies for our new bubs. One of our main goals was to create a nappy that was nice and easy to use and care for, but fun and colourful as well! We started listing a few nappies on eBay under the name of Green Nappies, then opened a simple website within a couple of months. It has all just grown from there! I have been running Green Kids for over 6 years now, and still loving it!

Who makes Green Kids nappies and where are they made?
Green Kids nappies are made in Perth, Western Australia by mums who sew the nappies from home.

What's your most important business philosophy?
From a business point of view, customer service is very important to me. Cloth nappies are still a relatively new idea, and I think it is really important to provide follow up support for customers. I also strive to always use premium quality materials so that our products are of the very highest quality.

What do you like most about your work?
I love the creativity that running your own business allows, as well as the freedom to be there for my kids whenever they need me :-) I have always been very environmentally conscious, so I love being able to make it easier for others to choose cloth nappies, and help them to reduce their environmental impact :-)

Is there anything new happening at Green Kids in the future?
We have some fun new Christmas Funtimes prints coming out soon, I'm so excited! We also have some more new Funtimes prints, as well as 3 new Anytimes colours!! I also hope to release a range of Anytimes prints in the new year too, so stay tuned :-)

Thanks Sasha!

We have a gorgeous Lagoon Minkytime here with a very absorbent Bamboo Insert here to give away!
