Announced today, 29 April 2021, Cheeky Wipes has been recognised for its excellence in Sustainable Development, selected as one of the 17 winners in this category, based on outstanding positive impacts across a number of initiatives such as waste reduction, and has aligned education, customer and stakeholder engagement and employee initiatives with company sustainability values.

Led by founder Helen Rankin and her 16 strong team, it has sustainability principles at the heart of its products, each providing a reusable alternative to single-use baby wipes, makeup removing wipes and absorbent underwear and pads for period and incontinence use.

Cheeky Wipes has demonstrated clear leadership and an exemplary approach to sustainable development, aligning their sustainability strategy to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Its championing and support for education and charitable programmes is particularly positive, as is its high expectations and support for supply chain partners. Sustainability is at the core of the business operational and investment model, and its future strategic priorities.

“We were absolutely delighted to find out that we made the shortlist back in October, so winning this very illustrious award is just incredible” said Helen Rankin, Founder of Cheeky Wipes.
