Mama Bamboo are officially Vegan!!
Many of us may have toyed with the idea of switching to vegan food for Veganuary but we may not have considered ‘going vegan’ in other facets of life. An easy change to make is buying vegan cosmetics and baby care items.
30 years ago it was common practice for many cosmetic products to be tested on animals. Thanks to greater awareness and tireless campaigning everyone is more conscientious about their choices and many brands of cosmetics and personal care items are proud to state that they are cruelty free.
Additionally we are becoming more aware of animal products and by-products in our make up and bath and shower products used by the whole family. As a result new vegan skincare, haircare and make up brands are popping up or existing brands are changing how they do things.
How are vegan products different to cruelty free products?
It is commonly misconstrued that is a product is cruelty free then it is also vegan but that can often not be the case. Many products contain animal ingredients or animal derived ingredients such as honey, beeswax, carmine, collagen and gelatine.

This now means you have one less thing to feel guilty about as a parent as when you are buying Bamaboo wet wipes not only are they 100% compostable they are also cruelty free and vegan.
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.
