At Mama Bamboo our mission is to be the most eco-friendly disposable nappy available. We research every aspect of our supply chain, constantly looking for better ways to protect our planet.
Having discovered an amazing alternative to plastic, we are pleased to announce from October our super soft bamboo nappies will now be wrapped in 100% compostable packaging.
Why are you moving to smaller packs?
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 proud to be the only nappy range n the market to use 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.
We truly believe partners should be with mummies' during the birth of their children. We encourage everyone to sign the petition campaigning to lift these restrictions. Although we can't fix this right away, we hope our list of what should you pack in your hospital bag, full of our best bamboo and essentials recommendations, at least helps you get ready for the big day.
Only 9% of recyclable plastic has ever been recycled. This is why we choose a compostable plant-based plastic for our nappy packaging. In this months blog we delve into the different types of 'eco-friendly' plastics to uncover which really are the best for Mama Earth.
With 14 billion baby wipes thrown away every year in the UK, wet wipes remain one of the worst single-use plastic pollution problems. We investigate the materials and ingredients used in baby wipes, explain why not all natural fibres are equal, and how our mama-of-two, Laura, designed our wipes to tick all the boxes - for baby, you and the planet.
