A look back with an eye to the future

The Nappy Laundry Company has had a busy 2012 with the redesign and relaunch of our website  thanks to the wonderful workings and patience of Neil from Hedley Enterprises – it is not easy trying to write copy for a website and learn basic coding with three children in tow!  But the website has proved to be a huge success and I have learnt a new skill!

We have incorporated our guest nappy showcase with great success having featured the work of the talented Morven from Kara Bumba and Sarah and Leah from A Touch of Cloth.  This slot will continue into 2013 and hopefully go from strength to strength.  We are always delighted to hear from WAHM who would be interested in being featured.

My work with Grampian Real Nappy Campaign was great fun and I met some wonderful mums-to-be and welcomed some new volunteers.  We also set up a facebook page so that advice and information can be given out between our monthly meet at Poynernook Road on the first Friday of the month.

No doubt 2013 will see a new set of challenges and lots of new cloth bums and The Nappy Laundry has a few plans that we hope to see expand and grow over the coming months.

Our first plan, although only at the initial stages, is to set up a network of mums in the Aberdeenshire, Moray and Angus area to become fluff champions, who can spread the word about The Nappy Laundry and benefit from converting mums to cloth.  Fluffy disciples you could say!

We also intend stocking more Scottish nappy bands, we sell TotsBots and have featured Kara Bumba, but we know there are a lot more independent nappy makers around Scotland and this is something we will strive towards.

And finally how could I forget that 2012 saw The Nappy Laundry receive a Green Butterfly award for helping reduce waste in Aberdeenshire.  It was wonderful to have our hard work recognised and it is thanks to all our customers that we are able to go from strength to strength.
