It’s not every day you get to meet, hang out and interview one of your idols, is it? Emma Bunton was a total girl crush/hero of mine growing up and it was a joy to meet her recently. As part of the original girl power/girl boss championing Spice Girls, Emma was one of my favourites: smart, sassy, beautiful and warm, she’s everyone’s ‘wannabee’ bestie.
Emma LOVED the term #mumboss when I mentioned it to her (check out the vlog) and Emma is one heck of an inspirational mumboss herself.
Emma B is an all-rounder: smart, caring, entrepreneurial and crazy-talented, it was an utter pleasure to hear her speak with great passion about her eco baby brand Kit & Kin, which has all been lovingly tested on her own kids by the way, and has taken years of development before launch.
Together with her aptly named business partner Christopher Money (!) Emma has co-founded a ground-breaker of a brand encompassing nappies, wipes and mum and baby/kid products that are gentle to children as well as the earth.
With a whopping 9 awards behind their belts already, and a commitment to saving the world (really) Kit & Kin is a new family brand which offers affordable, safe and eco friendly products you need in your life.
In the UK alone we throw away over 8 million nappies everyday (shocking huh?) and the majority of each one can take up to 500 years to biodegrade! Kit & Kins’ nappies biodegrade between 3 and 6 years.
They don’t leak and are tough, comfortable and designed to keep babies secure ensuring they’re dry up to 12 hours, matching, if not out-performing the leading brands.
I adored the other products in the line, too with the delicious-smelling bath products, and I’ve been slathering the stretch mark oil all over my tummy after my bath each night. The magic salve has also been a life-saver now the weather has turned colder and it’s literally soothed away the boys’ chapped lips (and mine).
Emma’s items make the ideal gifts and if I have another baby (maybe next year) I can’t wait to stock up!
Emma, hats off to you and Chris, your brand is utterly brilliant and it was a joy to hang out with you.
