wotnot – environmentally friendly and socially conscious Australian brand
Continuing our celebration of great Australian beauty brands, today we present wotnot. If you are looking for a brand that supports the environment, and Australian charities, wotnot is the brand for you.
wotnot was founded after founders and mothers, Sinead Roberts and Sioned Guard, launched the first environmentally-friendly nappy in Australia, and it fast gathered a cult following of health-conscious hipsters, environmentalists and yummy mummies alike. The customers loved the quality and eco credentials of the nappy and were quick to ask for complementary all-natural products of an equally high standard. Wotnot was born to do just that and is still growing the same mission today.
Wotnot endeavours to be the most authentic provider of organic baby products and skincare, with Sinead explaining that their ultimate vision is to “be the best, most trusted natural skincare brand for all the family.”
Wotnot puts it’s money where its mouth is with environmental and social programs. Wotnot takes recycling very seriously. With a policy of always re-use first, to creative up-cycling (empty tape rolls end up in childcare centres to be used for craft), environmental impact is minimised. If it can’t be re-used, it’s recycled and recycled materials are sourced for their own use. Wotnot also offset all carbon emissions each year by donating to Carbon Neutral. Funding is used to plant new trees in areas of deforestation.
Wotnot products are reflections of core values – using only organic and sustainably sourced materials where possible, providing customers with the opportunity to purchase skin and baby care that won’t impact the earth negatively. Wotnot goes to great lengths to ensure that the products they make are of premium quality, with no compromise to your skin or the environment and with no animal testing. Sustainability and kindness, to each other and the planet!
Wotnot is passionate about the wellbeing of children and has teamed up with Bear Cottage, at Westmead hospital. Wotnot donates a percentage of sales for all ‘For baby’ range to Bear Cottage to support its important function as a children’s hospice in NSW. Wotnot supports women in every way and donates a percentage of all sales of wotnot ‘For her’ products to Women’s Community Shelters Australia, to support women experiencing domestic violence.
