Where it all began...
Hi! My name is Nicola and I’m the founder of Rock Bottom Nappies! I am so proud to be a mum to two beautiful girls and wife to my best friend. Being a parent has taught me just how valuable and limited time is. We are forever busy and running late, we are short on sleep and our to-do lists are getting longer. When I started Rock Bottom Nappies, I wanted to offer parents a way to steal back minutes so that they can spend more time with the people they love so I created a super smart subscription model that works for your family automatically!
I also wanted to make sure that I wasn’t bringing just another nappy to the market, further adding to landfills and hurting our planet. So I searched high and low for an eco-friendly bamboo nappy that would biodegrade in a home compost.
And I didn’t stop there, how could I support my community? I am also a survivor of family violence and have seen firsthand what it takes for women to leave a dangerous environment and rebuild their lives. In Australia 1 in 4 women and up to 36% of children will experience family violence. These stats are unacceptable and whilst I won’t profess to have the solution, I am committed to being part of it by donating to causes that fight against these awful stats. For this reason, Rock Bottom Nappies will donate a pack of nappies to a mum in need for each subscription box we sell; and when we scale and can start to offer employment, we will prioritise our recruitment to women who are trying to build their financial independence for themselves.
Rock Bottom Nappies is just at the beginning of its journey and I have big plans. I would so love you to be a part of our mission to make the world less crappy for families, the environment and survivors of family violence. With your support, this small business can do big things!
