Botanic Baby's Story

Every year in Victoria, there are 96,000 babies born. Per child, 700kg of used disposable diapers go into the landfill, with each nappy taking 500 years to break down. In fact, disposable nappies fossilise over time, creating a lasting negative impact on the environment. 

We believe that this created a fantastic opportunity for us to better the environment, so we created a unique reusable cloth nappy and nappy wash service. Whether you exclusively use cloth nappies or even do so partially (i.e. at home), you too are making a difference. 

We understand that using our modern cloth nappies can be initially daunting due to:

  • The effort of washing and drying

  • The cost of initial outlay for a sizable nappy stash

Environmentally friendly wash service

That's where we come in. Our washable nappies can be collected on a regular basis by one of our eco-minded team members, who will provide you with a nappy wash service for a comparative cost to buying disposable diapers.

We follow the AS4146-2000 standard for laundry service, and we only use green cleaners so that the water leaving our machines is both sterile and ph-neutral. 

Our commitment to sustainability

We believe in a closing environmental gaps in our business practices. That means we don't just care about reducing landfill waste from disposable nappies, but that we also care about what happens when cloth nappies need to be retired. Did you know that in the near future, today's cotton insert could become tomorrow's cloth nappy cover fabric?

For nappies that don't end up being recycled for other uses like cleaning cloths or donated to community projects, we submit them to be recycled, pulped, and used to create new fabrics like rayon. Not only does this maximize the use of our cloth nappies, but it also reduces the need for primary cotton when different fabric types are created. 

We now manufacture nappies 100% Australian cotton from Queensland made locally in Melbourne. Traceability that the product is petroleum free 100% cotton to ensure a sustainable full circle product. 

We’re part of the community

From Victoria to other parts of Australia, we are committed to our involvement within the communities and small businesses we serve. We help people grow their businesses with our service and create more local jobs in the process. In the greater scheme of things, we are also helping councils meet landfill reduction targets in order to build a more sustainable waste plan in the growing coastal state of Victoria.
