Quick Update

Posted in 'General' on March 12, 2011, 7:08 am
It's been a while since I last blooged, so I thought I'd jump at the chance whilst everyone is having a sleep in this morning.

The cloth nappy hunt is underway, and what a great hunt so far.  This one certainly has kept me busy. 

What is the Cloth Nappy Hunt?
Basically like a treasure hunt, only you're not looking for treasure but an icon of a nappy.

If you would like to register for the Cloth Nappy Hunt, there's still heaps of time to find icons and go into the draw to win some fabulous prizes of which totals to over $9,000 worth.

So far we've had 134 icon finds, which is actually quite low in comparison to other hunts and even other cloth nappy sponsors.  I don't think its hard at all, but maybe we have a huge new influx of hunters who aren't aware of the little tricks sposnors use to hide icons.
If you are wanting any hints to our clues please visit Hint Thread.  I am posting hints to the clues every Tuesday.

Production
We are moving (well plodding slowly along) with our new production.  We have decided its in our best interest to outsource everything so we have been testing our samples quite vigorously just to make sure, so far so good.  Meanwhile I will be looking at having an agent who specialises in quality control/assurance to audit the factory and production run to make sure the factory does work under fair trade work practices even if not certified.  I was impressed with the fact he gave all his staff a day off on International Womens day, very positive indeed.

Packaging Changes
As I head into the offshore production phase to move the business into the right direction, I also need to change/introduce some sort of packaging.  So what we've brainstormed and come up with so far;

  • Cloth nappies will have a header card where body of nappy wraps around for single nappies and a box for a 6 pack of nappies.
  • Cloth breast pads will keep the current single card, however we will be doing a 4 pack one too.
  • Cloth menstrual pads will be later down the track  as I haven't yet got that much brain space to think of something yet and I want that to be special :)
