Hannah Porter

Hannah Porter is an advocate for sustainable living and eco-friendly parenting solutions. She co-founded Bear and Moo, a company based in Hamilton, New Zealand. The company was launched in 2018 and reflects Porter’s deep commitment to providing parents with sustainable, reusable alternatives to traditional disposable products, especially those relating to cloth diapers and baby essentials.

Porter, a new mum, wedding planner, and marriage celebrant joined forces with her husband Richard to start Bear and Moo, a company that promotes eco-conscious parenting. Since its inception in 2018, Bear and Moo has quickly become a beloved brand among families looking for environmentally friendly choices. The company is known for its high-quality, reasonably priced, and reusable products, which make sustainable parenting accessible and attractive to a broad audience.

Under Porter’s leadership, Bear and Moo has become a go-to source for sustainable parenting products and cultivated a community of like-minded individuals passionate about reducing waste and embracing eco-friendly practices. The success of Bear and Moo is a testament to Porter’s dedication to sustainability and her ability to drive positive change through her business.

Throughout its operation, Bear and Moo, under Porter’s co-leadership, has been recognised for its contributions to sustainability and business excellence. Bear & Moo received two awards at the Westpac Waikato Business Awards in 2020: the Micro Business Award and the People’s Choice Award. Two months before, they had also won the Oh Baby award for the best cloth diaper, a public vote-based award. Hannah Porter was recently announced as a finalist for the New Zealand EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2023.

Hannah Porter’s journey to the forefront of the eco-conscious parenting movement is a perfect example of innovation, sustainability, and the successful integration of personal values with professional pursuits. Her entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to the sustainable products industry are commendable. She states, “And I’m constantly upskilling and learning to ensure I’m doing what I can to be the best in the industry.”
