Supporting NZ Small Businesses When Buying Cloth Nappies

Supporting NZ Small Businesses When Buying Cloth Nappies

One bright point for me during this lockdown has been the number of small local  businesses we have supported in our house instead of relying on getting everything at the supermarket. We’ve received some absolutely amazing service and excellent quality products from these businesses and eaten some super yummy food to top it all off (my waistline is possibly suffering for this, but hey…).

From the other side, I have been so grateful that I’ve been able to continue to trade given we’re selling essential products – both for the parents I’ve been able to help out (I've had a few worried parents contact me in various situations who desperately needed cloth nappies during lockdown), and selfishly for myself, as it meant continuing to have an income over this time. I’m so sad for the many heartbroken business owners out there who haven’t been so lucky and are facing closing their businesses.

Although Bubblebubs is an Australian brand, as the distributor of Bubblebubs products in NZ, my business is completely separate to Bubblebubs in Australia. We often get questions as to why we’re don’t always run exactly the same promos as Bubblebubs in Australia, and this is the main reason – we’re both independent businesses, which means I can make independent decisions for our NZ customers and NZ market.

And most importantly, being separate businesses means that all income from sales made through Bubblebubs NZ stays in NZ. In particular, it helps feed, clothe and put a roof over my young family – something that I’m so grateful for, especially at a time like this! I love that I’m able to share a passion for products that have amazing benefits for our environment, work so well and are super cute.

So thank you to all our amazing Bubblebubs customers for all your support over the years that I’ve been doing this, I really do appreciate it and I love that I’ve been able to get to know a number of you over that time – often through first, second and third babies, time flies far too fast!

You may also know that we stock Bubblebubs products through a few wonderful cloth nappy stores in NZ, so if you do have the opportunity to purchase from these stores please do. By doing this you’re supporting two small NZ businesses and two NZ families!
