About Us


Hi, I’m Emily – a Queensland wife to one, mum to two and founder of Green Things. My goal is to help fellow parents find affordable reusable options to guide your family on your journey to zero waste living. Because it IS possible to save the planet and save money at the same time.

Green Things brings together an amazing collection of modern cloth nappies and other eco and budget-friendly products to make it easier to eliminate disposable waste from your home. If you care for the future of your children and our planet, you’ll want to limit the excessive amount of plastic and disposable products currently targeted at families.

Lucky for you, you’re in the right place!


The Green Things Story

The idea for the business came after I had the first of my two children. Like most parents, I’d go through multiple nappies, breast pads, wipes and other disposable products each day. I was shocked and horrified by the amount of plastic and single-use items that are considered mainstream choices for raising a little one.

As the cost and the waste continued to pile up, my horror grew. I was determined to find a better way for my family, to save money and reduce the amount of excess waste from our home. Because I firmly believe caring for the Earth shouldn’t cost you the Earth.

Knowing that I wasn’t the only one looking to reduce the environmental impact of family life, I decided to start an online shop dedicated to selling modern cloth nappies and promoting zero waste living for families.

Green Things.

From humble beginnings, Green Things is now a one-stop online shop filled with affordable and quality cloth nappies and reusable products to help your family on your low-waste journey. Zero waste living for families is possible – my family’s journey is proof of that!
