Kim Graham-Nye

Kim Graham-Nye was pregnant with her first child and living in Australia when she read an article about how damaging disposable diapers are to our environment. Nye and her husband bought the sales rights to an eco-friendly flushable diaper, moved to Portland, Ore., and gDiapers was born. A contract with Whole Foods and celebrity endorsements got the company on the map, and sales have doubled every year. Their company offers on-site childcare and a flexible work schedule for their employees to accommodate busy family lives. And Nye, who has two kids of her own, takes full advantage of their family-friendly policies. She works the early shift so she's home in time to pick the kids up from school and spend time with them in the evenings.
