We are pleased to announce from October our super soft Bamaboo nappies will now be available in smaller packs.
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 cornstarch 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 cornstarch film coming from?
The company that makes the cornstarch 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.
We will be running down the stock of our larger packs and these will then be replaced by the smaller packs. Don’t worry they will still be available to buy in bundles and as a subscription.
