Bamboo Village Mama Bamboo Carbon Offset

We are so proud to carbon offset our freight emissions by sponsoring the Ugandan Bamboo Village Programme. This month we became a 'Gold Sponsor'. 

Ugandan Bamboo Village Gold Sponsor Mama Bamboo

 The Ugandan Bamboo Village works with the local people to plant and sustainably harvest bamboo. Providing jobs and a steady source of income for the local population, as well as housing and a community. 

To date 35,000 bamboo plants have already been grown, and the goal is to cross the threshold of 1 million plants by the end of 2020. Bamboo is not only a great sustainable resource but it is also an amazing carbon sink - it soaks up 3x as much carbon as woody forest - and it helps in previously deforested areas to prevent further soil erosion, giving local people a chance to establish food crops. 

This year also saw the grand opening of the Concept Centre, providing space and support for 9 start up businesses.

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.
