Plastic Free Collection

Nature’s Child is committed to removing all plastic from our packaging. We believe this should be a fundamental goal for eco-friendly baby companies.

Removing unnecessary plastics is a priority for us. Over the years, our customers expect Nature’s Child to set the standard in eco friendly baby products. Here are some of the milestones we have pioneered to date.

  1. Australia’s First Organic Baby Store in 2000
  2. Australia’s First Organic Cotton Cloth Nappies 2004
  3. Australia’s Baby Business to sell Cloth Nappies commercially to mainstream baby stores 2008
  4. Australia’s First range of Organic Baby Range of Mother & Baby Essentials 2005 – 2008
  5. Australia’s First Baby Brand to offer Non-Disposable essentials for every day use 2003
  6. Australia’s First Certified Organic Baby Skincare Range – 100% of the range. ACO
  7. Australia’s First Baby Company to commit to 100% Plastic Free Packaging

We will continue to be an industry leader for eco-friendly baby products standards. It is what our customers have come to expect and it is certainly what we have come to expect from ourselves. Over the next few years we’ll be removing unnecessary packaging where we can and introducing alternative packaging materials. Our ultimate aim is to eliminate unnecessary plastic and make all our own-brand packaging reusable or home-compostable material by 2021.

We’ve made great progress already, with over 90% of our own-brand packaging now meeting our recyclable, reusable or home recycling goal. But we know there’s more we need to do, and that’s why in 2018 we made the decision to aim for a 100% plastic free packaging.

All our products are plastic free and reusable but packaging has always been a challenge. When we started selling our organic cotton baby and mother products in 2005 such as breast pads and baby wipes, it was a standard expectation from retailers that the product would be ‘protected’ in a plastic baby inside the box. Now you have to remember that back in 2005, plastic free  was not a phrase. Just using recycled cardboard for our packaging was a major step.

In recent years, we have engaged with our key retailers, customers and distributers with a plastic free conversation and are pleased to announced a 100% acceptance of our plastic free goal with packaging.

Reusable Baby Wipes

Here are the 4 products that are already 100% Plastic Free. You simple open the box and your reusable product is ready to use and the box can go strait into the recycling. The packaging is the only rubbish is the only waste that will result from our products. Compare this to a packet of disposable baby wipes or breast pads that are used and discarded weekly. Actually, it’s such a beautiful box, we usually recommend cutting out the beautiful image on the front and making a gift card with it. We have seen many delighted customers enjoy our home made gift cards.

100% Plastic Free Products so far

  1. Breast Pads Regular – Cardboard box with die cut so you can see the lovely fabric but no plastic!
  2. Baby Wipes Box of 8 – Cardbox box with die cut so you can see the lovely fabric but no plastic!
  3. Amber Necklace – Cardboard Hanger with eye catching display
  4. Amber Bracelet/Anklet – Cardboard Hanger with eye catching display

Current Organic Baby Skincare Packaging

Glass Bottles with plastic lids

Our gorgeous organic baby skincare is proudly packaged in glass but we still have plastic lids. We are working on a lid solution. The only lids that are designed to work on our bottles are made from plastic! So this project will take longer as we will need to change our bottles in order to change our lids. The good news is that all our plastic lids are hard BPA free plastic so you can recycle them in the meantime. The good news is that your product has minimal or no contact with the plastic before and after use.

We look forward to updating you further later this year and look forward to celebrating every milestone with you our valued customers.

PS: The first synthetic plastic — Bakelite  — was produced in 1907, marking the beginning of the global plastics industry. However, rapid growth in global plastic production was not realized until the 1950s. Over the next 65 years, annual production of plastics increased nearly 200-fold to 381 million tonnes in 2015. For context, this is roughly equivalent to the mass of two-thirds of the world population.1  You can learn more here

12 Conscious Christmas Gift Ideas – Would you like Less Waste with that?

Unique Christmas Gifts

Looking for a Unique Christmas Gift?

It is easier than ever to have a Conscious Christmas with Ethical Gifts and Gift Ideas for the Eco Conscious!

How about some Self Love, Deep Connection, Precious Memories or a dash of Gratitude? Oh, and can I offer you Less Waste with that? It is easier than ever to have a Conscious Christmas with Ethical Gifts and Gift Ideas for the Eco Conscious!

We are entering that amazing time of year again when family gatherings around the Christmas Tree are a chance to create ritual and meaning with gift giving and sharing a meal together. Are you a tree and decorations family? Are you anti-christmas family? Whatever your values – you are creating culture and memories for your children around Christmas. Think about that for a second – because it’s too late when they are older to realise that was not the message you wanted them to have!

We all need more connection and less waste in this beautiful human life. How do we honour this and still have the joy of wrapping and giving gifts?

“We are the generation of parents raising conscious children in a world where words like plastic free, waste warrior, organic and sustainability are part of our daily lives” Jannine Barron – Nature’s Child

I was recently asked by a customer, why we stock a lot less products than we used to? My answer…”Because we don’t need more … we need less!”  I will explain that a little more.

We have learnt that overwhelm is the No.1 frustration of pregnant women shopping for baby on the internet. Using our 18 yrs experience – we prefer to offer you less options but select the the very safest, waste free, eco products that ensure you spend less and get the best. We look for products with less bells and whistles and less packaging. This results in ‘more’. More money in your pocket, more time with your kids, less shopping, less waste and more connection with the things that really are the most important in this world.

Our business mission at Nature’s Child has always been to contribute to this world by helping parents live simply and with less waste but still shop effortlessly for the essentials when needed. We do all the hard work with our suppliers ensuring toxin free ingredients, certified organic and waste free packaging. So you can just grab it all conveniently

Christmas is potentially the most wasteful season if we take off our conscious cap.  So keeping on our ethical mood, here are some ideas abouat how you can enjoy the silly season without taking away the joy of giving this Christmas or any time a new baby is born all year round.

Here are our top products that are delightful, heart opening, practical and fun. They are a joy to open and a joy to use and most importantly, they are appreciated all year around. We like to say that our products are not the ones that get the most squeals on Christmas Day, our products are the ones that are appreciated all year and half way through the year, your receiver will come back to you over and over to thank  you for your thoughtful and precious that gift that is still being used!

The seminal film by Annie Leonard  “The Story of Stuff” put everything into perspective for me over a decade ago. If you have not seen it yet, search it on You tube and sit back with a cup of tea for 18 mind expanding minutes.  She show us that of all the materials flowing through the consumer economy, only 1% remain in use six months after sale. Even the goods we might have expected to hold onto are soon condemned to destruction through either planned obsolescence (breaking quickly) or perceived obsolesence (becoming unfashionable).

As George Monbiot said in his 2012 Article “The Gift of Death”

There’s nothing they need, nothing they don’t own already, nothing they even want. So you buy them a solar-powered waving queen; a belly button brush; a silver-plated ice cream tub holder; a “hilarious” inflatable zimmer frame; a confection of plastic and electronics called Terry the Swearing Turtle”, ; a Darth Vader talking piggy bank; an ear-shaped i-phone case; an individual beer can chiller; an electronic wine breather; a sonic screwdriver remote control; bacon toothpaste; a dancing dog. no one is expected to use them, or even look at them, after Christmas Day. They are designed to elicit thanks, perhaps a snigger or two, and then be thrown away.

They seem amusing on the first day of Christmas, daft on the second, embarrassing on the third. By the twelfth they’re in landfill. For thirty seconds of dubious entertainment, or a hedonic stimulus that lasts no longer than a nicotine hit, we commission the use of materials whose impacts will ramify for generations. “

So what can you get this Christmas with all this in mind?

I will finish in the words of George Monbiot again who said it beautifully
