Problem

Nappies are the 3rd largest UK household waste, yet the eco-friendly diapers currently available don’t hold up to parent’s expectations – often leaking and tearing. Millennial parents understandably want nappies that work without costing the planet. So where’s the middle ground between performance and sustainability?

Solution

Cleannest nappies perfectly balance performance and sustainability, modern parenting and timeless design. Cleannest delivers a monthly supply of nappies directly to customers over the 2.5 year period before children are potty trained. Our nappies are proven to have -40% CO2 emissions compared to traditional nappies (Climate KIC).

Business model

Differentiation stems from a combination of product quality, service design and branding. Our product performance, our brand vision for building an inclusive community, and our sustainability credentials that enable parents to have the convenience they want, need and deserve without sacrificing on product quality.

Cleannest customers subscribe to their monthly diapers and wipes subscription. The products are delivered to their doorstep – on-time, in the right size and in the right quantity. Our prices reflect the high-quality, category-defining nature of our value proposition and our hassle-free service. A monthly subscription to Cleannest is £65 with an additional £20 pounds for adding 4 packs of wipes. An added bonus – we save our customers from the panic of running out of nappies and wipes, as well as schlepping these bulky products home every few days. This leaves us with healthy margins that enable us to reinvest and, ultimately, bring 100% industrial-scale compostable nappies to market which is our longer term product vision.

Competition

Cleannest is lauching a new premium product category in Europe. Morgan and Rima are experienced brand creators with extensive experience in building communities. With our passion for bringing great mind together, innovating stale industries and breaking with taboos, we are convinced we have what it takes to make Cleannest the next generation nappy brand.
