Sustainability and Giving Back

In 2013, we set out on a mission to create the best modern cloth nappies for young families. They had to look beautiful and do the job. Yet our true purpose was something bigger - to inspire positive change for the planet. We all have a responsibility to look after our planet. With sustainability as a core value at EcoNaps, we're constantly striving to do better to ensure we offer high-quality, safe, and ethically made products that give back. Here are the actions we have in place.

Sustainability Practices

Reusable Design‎

Disposable nappies will sit in landfill for up to 500 years. Our resuable, washable cloth designs offer eco- concious parents an alternative to either reduce, wean off, or completely avoid using disposable nappies.‎

Plastic-free Packaging‎

Our swing tags are printed on 100% biodegradable and recyclable card-stock while our booster kits, insert kits, nursing pads and bamboo wipes come in reusable fabric totes. Our product packaging is mindfully designed to be composted, recycled or used again.‎

Shipping‎

Our products are shipped in compostable & recyclable cardboard cartons with unbleached paper stuffing to protect items in transit. We’re working towards a paper-based tape solution so we can proudly ship 100% plastic free.‎

Supply Chain‎

We only work with partners that are accredited for their ethical business practices. Our current manufacturer is SEDEX certified and conducts an annual SMETA audit to uphold working conditions.‎

Certified Materials‎

Our PUL, micro-suede, bamboo terry and bamboo velour all carry OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification. This is one of the strictest tests for harmful substances. We’re currently in the process of gaining OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification for our bamboo fleece too.‎

Our HQ‎

As an environmentally conscious bunch, we power our space with solar & renewable energy sources. When it comes to office supplies (like loo-roll or tea) we choose to support local, like-minded businesses who also prioritise sustainability. We also compost & recycle 99% of our office waste.‎

We’re committed to giving back.

Throughout the year we raise awareness and provide valuable financial support for a variety of organisations, causes and charities through our give back product ranges and sales. Recent support includes:

Rainforest Rescue‎

For World Environment Day, we donated to Rainforest Rescue, a not-for-profit organisation that has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally.‎

Indigenous Literacy Foundation‎

For National Reconciliation Week, we donated to the Indiginous Literacy Foundation, a national book industry charity dedicated to lifting literacy levels in remote Indigenous communities.‎

Take 3 for the Sea‎

We donated 10% of all sales from our Desert Sky & Oasis limited range prints to Take 3 For The Sea, an organisation committed to reducing the plastic pollution and waste in the ocean and broader environment.‎
