Disposable nappies, done differently

Green Kids Co. was born in response to the distinct lack of (affordable) eco-friendly kids products and healthy food options available to Australian mums and dads in 2018. Our passionate team is made up of certified natural health practitioners, registered child carers and professional chefs, who’ve come together to enrich the lives of Aussie families while working to reduce our collective impact on the environment.  
The result is our cornerstone product – our Bamboo Nappies. We’ve designed them from the ground up, so we thought it worth sharing the broader picture with you ...

Since the first disposable nappy was patented back in 1948, the industry has grown astronomically, and understandably so. There’s no denying the convenience disposable nappies offer, but the bad news surrounding this growth is, well, bad…

Did you know Australians collectively dispose of more than 5.6 million nappies per day? Seems like a crazy number, especially when you consider that the average petroleum-based plastic disposable nappy takes 500 years or more to decompose! 

But WAIT! There’s some great news – we can now make better choices.
Green Kids Co.’s Bamboo nappies are made with Soft Bamboo, bio-fabric that has been sustainably grown, with each nappy taking only 10% of the time to biodegrade than that of regular petroleum-based plastic nappies.
Wham Bam, Thank You Maam!

So they’re green, but do they work how you need them to? Well, yes, better even! Green Kids Co.’s corn-based wetness lining is 100% more breathable than the traditional materials, leading to less rashes and a more comfortable, happier little human. On top of that, the Environmental Wood Pulp inner offers no leaks and a far superior absorbency to most other nappies on the market today. 

We don’t use any of the nasties you find in other brands – Chlorine, heavy metals, dioxins, phthalates, lotions and fragrances – our bamboo nappies are 100% toxin free, so you can be safe in the knowledge that your little champion is safe in a Green Kids Co. nappy.

It’s quite simple really… We want kids to Eat awesome, live awesome, be awesome!
