New 100% compostable packaging

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.

Anyone can call their product 'eco' - clever branding and careful choice of words is often all that is needed. And, sometimes the smallest % of cotton is enough to make you think you are making a really good environmentally friendly choice. We think all parents should know what is in the nappies their baby is wearing. Here's what to know.
