My Green Nappy Discovering Modern Cloth Nappies and Eco-Friendly Disposable Nappies

February 25, 2013

Meet Our Guest: Destination Green

Let’s Meet Emma, the proud owner of Destination Green:

Hi, my name is Emma and I’m from Sydney. I started my career as a waste educator and currently work as an environmental scientist. I am definitely a “greenie” at heart and initially loved the idea that i could help minimise my first born daughters carbon footprint by using cloth nappies. Seeing how easy it was we are continuing to use them on our second! Just to take it that one step further we started Destination Green to get more people using them!

About Destination Green:

My husband and I own “Destination Green”. It seems all the nappy shops/brands have cute and fluffy names but we came up with the name Destination Green as we want to grow over time to become more than just nappies. We want to become the go-to shop for all things sustainable especially for those on a budget.

Destination Green sells pocket one size fits most nappies, we also have newborn/premmie nappies, with bamboo and double gusset nappies coming soon. We have loads of nappy accessories including some great wet bags and bamboo training pants.

We offer all our facebook fans/likers a FREE gift with their first purchase, and we are always having other specials.

As an environmental scientist i have concerns about all aspects of the environment especially with regard to climate change. Anything we can do to minimise our impact on the environment and help others do the same by making sustainable purchases for our children will help, remembering “every little bit counts”.

When you visit Destination Green make sure you have a look at:

  1. Our Shop – all our cute designer nappies at affordable prices.
  2. Nappy Debate – get real life calculations on how much you can save by using modern cloth nappies.
  3. Blog – It’s not just about bums! It’s about giving you ideas on how to embed sustainability into your children’s life.

Here are three of my favourite sites:

  1. Nappies on a mission – if you no longer need your cloth nappies consider donating them to orphanages through nappies on a mission.
  2. An amazing mum entrepreneur network
  3. Amazing pre-natal, post-natal pilates and massage

Question for readers: How did you convince your partners to go on the cloth nappy journey with you?

Boys in cloth nappies… What you need to know about boy ‘bits’ and the cloth nappy.

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

Aim his willy down. The front of the nappy is the wettest area, so ensure your absorbent layers (boosters for pocket nappies) are maximised at the front.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

We found with boys bits you need more absorbency in the front, so with our Pikapu nappy we simply put a prefold in at night time and concentrated it more in the front and he was fine. During the day we found that we didn’t really need boosting, the nappy as it was, was fine. It really depends on how they sleep as well, if they are a tummy or back sleeper.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Modern cloth nappies fit just like disposable nappies, so no need to do anything different when it comes to ‘boy’ bits. Just fit them as you would with your disposable nappy.

Meet Our Guest: Little Para Pants

Little Para Pants

Let’s meet Mel, the proud owner of Little Para Pants:

Hi! I’m Mel and I live in Adelaide, where it’s hot and dry today. I have a husband Darrin, son Caleb who’s almost 4, and another son Ian who died at the age of two days. We have three cats and three chickens, and plan to add two more chickens to our brood soon!

Little Para Pants began when Caleb was about three months old. The terry squares we were using just weren’t enough for this heavy wetting boy. So I found some tutorials and patterns online and started to sew some Modern Cloth Nappies. As I got better at it, friends told me they were good enough to sell, so I set up the business. Since then I’ve expanded from one single pattern to several, and many cloth nappy accessories as well.

What bugs me most is the culture we live in, where we told we can’t live without things that we really don’t need! For instance, when preparing for a new baby, most people assume you need a cot, a pram, and a mountain of bottles. Yet for thousands of years before these items were invented, parents and babies got by just fine – in fact thrived – by cosleeping, babywearing, and breastfeeding.

When you visit Little Para Pants, make sure you have a look at…

1. One Fit Wonders –  This is a one-size-fits-most all-in-one nappy with pocket. Use it as is during the day, or add the trifold at night for a super absorbent nappy!
2. Swim Nappies –  Side snapping with PUL and fold-over elastic to minimise leaks
3. Cloth Sandwich Wraps – A velcro-fastening square to keep your sandwiches fresh!

3 of my favourite sites are:

1. Joyous Birth – Australia’s home birth community
2. Scarlet Eve – Beautiful and comfortable cloth menstrual pads!
3. OZ Handmade – Your home for handmade things in Australia
