Zero-plastic packaging for Bamaboo by Mama Bamboo

Zero-plastic packaging for Bamaboo by Mama Bamboo

We are pleased to announce from October our super soft Bamaboo nappies will now be available in smaller packs wrapped in compostable packaging.

Why are you moving to smaller packs?

Despite only being a year old Mama Bamboo are always looking for ways to improve our nappies and packaging.  Our larger packs of nappies are wrapped in a oxodegradable film and whilst still biodegradable we wanted to find an even more eco-friendly wrapping.

After much research and testing we have sourced a type of compostable film that can be used as their packaging too.  The film is robust enough to protect our nappies but is 100% compostable and will have fully decomposed in 6 months.

We are also pleased to report that we are currently the only nappy on the market who have a fully compostable wrapper.

Where is the film coming from?

The company that makes the film is Cardia Bioplastics based in Australia.

Cardia Compostable resins are certified biodegradable and compostable to international standards including Europe EN13432, USA ASTM D6400, Australia AS4736 and Japan Green PLA and are used in a wide variety of applications from films, bags and moulded products to waste management items.

The products are breathable and therefore great for controlling odour and dissipating moisture.

Where will the packs be available?

Our nappies will still be available from our website and Amazon just as they are now. They are also be available at Ocado.

Mama Bamboo biodegradable eco nappy comparison
Choosing the best nappy for your baby

It’s not easy to compare nappies, particularly from an ‘eco’ perspective, so we have done the comparison for you. We’ve stripped out the ‘fluffy’ descriptions, to give you the comparable facts - what materials are used in the nappies and how biodegradable they are – we’ve even checked what packaging is used.

We're so proud to be a friend of the Bamboo Village and be carbon neutral!

In January 2018 we began a 9-month journey to research, design and launch an eco-friendly range of disposable nappies and wipes. One year on from launching Mama Bamboo, we are 'mummies on a mission' - we want to raise awareness of what standard disposable nappies are doing to our planet and push councils to do the right thing with nappy waste.
