London, UK (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
Co-founder of gNappies and business woman Kim Graham-Nye has been named in the exclusive Fortune Top 10 Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs list. Featuring in the top 10 of this prestigious list and following in some impressive footsteps, Kim received the accolade at a recent ceremony.
The Fortune list honours business women whose companies have generated between $1 million and $25 million in annual revenue in the last year, therefore featuring in the top 10 is reflective of Kim’s impressive entrepreneurial qualities.
Australian born Kim Graham-Nye, was recognised on account of the success she has seen following the launch of her eco-friendly nappies brand gDiapers (gNappies in the UK), that she developed and brought to market with her husband Jason. Since its launch in 2005, the brand has grown from strength to strength as Kim has observed a real gap in the market for parents looking to use an alternative nappy solution.
Kim and her husband, Jason, came up with the concept after learning that conventional disposable nappies are the third largest contributors to landfills in the world, despite only five per cent of the population using them. Wanting to make a change, gNappies was developed. The system is made up of washable cotton nappy pants, “little gPants” and either 100 per cent biodegradable gRefills or a washable gCloth inserts. So where a regular plastic disposable nappy can take up to 500 years to decompose in landfill, gRefills decompose in 50 – 100 days and can be disposed of with the domestic waste or home compost.
Kim Graham-Nye commented on her prestigious accolade: “I’m absolutely delighted to have been named in the top 10 of the Fortune’s list. It is reflective of the hard work we have put in and the fantastic response that consumers have given gNappies. Having recently showcased the range at the Baby Show in Earl’s Court in London, it is clear that parents have been looking for a different option when it comes to changing nappies and gNappies has fulfilled those needs.”
The full range of stylish nappy ‘little gPants’ come in a range of colours, patterns and sizes, and is now available for purchase via a dedicated gNappies UK website. Parents can also purchase gBaby Bundle to help get them started. Visit gnappies.co.uk for further information on biodegradable nappies or to purchase any of the gNappies products.
