Who are you and what is your position?

Tracy Dixon, Managing Director of Green Mums

The reason for starting the company?

To provide a real nappy advice service to new parents.  When looking into cloth nappies with my first child I found the whole thing very confusing!  So many choices, so much terminology for different nappy types.  I wanted to make the process easier for parents, lets face it, there is enough other stuff to think about when you are expecting!

How long have you been in business?

4 years

Tell us about your products.

We now stock organic clothing for babies and childre and a range of  natural or organic toiletries for babies, children and mums.
Our initial stock of cloth nappies has now expanded and includes a pretty wide range.  We do however only recommend nappies that we have tried and tested on our own children.  We also offer some products which may not necessarily be organic or natural but we highly recommend to parents because we love them!

What is your favourite green luxury item?

Burts Bees Line Diminishing Day Cream

What is your top green tip?

Tricky… there are so many small things you can do to be more environmentally friendly.  I guess it would have to be to “Use real nappies.  With over 4,500 disposable nappies going to landfill per child, that is a huge nappy mountain we are creating.  I can’t bear the thought of it still being there in hundreds of years!

What do you do to relax?

Walk by the sea or on the moors. We are lucky enough to live near both.
