Change Makers: Ditching the kitchen cloth for a good change

Combining friendship with work can be risky but two go-getting Tauranga women, each with a desire to create a more sustainable world, have chosen to join forces.

The all-natural Eco Cloth was invented by a clever Swede who couldn't abide the smell of musty dishcloths. Seventy-odd years later, it has become the fastest-selling product of a Tauranga-based cleaning products company on the strength of its compostability. "We took a product that has been around years and highlighted how it's a great sustainable alternative." says Kristy Hunter, who founded Good Change in 2019 with friend Stine Smith to give consumers an option other than the microplastic-infused dish cloths.

February 4, 2021

A cloth invented n Scandinavia decades ago is now the eco-friendly must-have for New Zealand kitchens, thanks to two Tauranga women who've launched the company Good Change. "We thought, we need to make our cloth available to everyone, but it can't be $15, no one's going to buy that. If we can make it affordable, we can scale it, get it to a lot of people, and change habits without breaking the bank balance."
