It's Good To B-Good
Mama Bamboo were the first European nappy brand to become a B-Corp. Since then we have strived to imrpove our environmental and people policies even further. This year we are so proud to annouce that we have recertified with a 15% increase. We scored 119.1 points. This makes Mama Bamboo the highest scoring B-Corp nappy/diaper brand in the world.
What Is A B Corp?
Well, for starters the B doesn't stand for baby!
A B-Corp is a business that meets the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. B-Corps don’t just care about profit - they care about the planet and everyone on the planet too. A B-Corp legally changes its corporate purpose to using business as a force for good.
The accreditation process scrutinised our business and our practices, what we do and how we act - to do things better for the planet, our customers, our team and our community.
Who Is A B Corp?
We joined an elite 'club' of companies who have achieved B Corp status. These include pioneering British brands such as Organix, Water Babies, JoJo Maman Bebe, The Body Shop, & Able & Cole.
Globally, since 2006, just c5.k companies, across 70 countries, have achieved the number of points required to be awarded the accreditation.
So What's Next?
We are still a young company. As we grow, we will continue to be as ethical and environmentally focused as we were when Mama Bamboo was just an idea.
During our journey so far,
- We have been voted 'Best Disposable Nappy Range' at the Mother & Baby Awards. As the only eco-friendly nappy to ever win, it proved that it is not necessary for big brands and supermarkets to make their nappies almost entirely out of plastic.
- We have been named one of The Good Shopping Guide's "Global Top 200 Ethical Companies".
- We have been awarded Summit status with Sustainable X.
- We have achieved the highest score of any disposable nappy brand in the Ethical Consumer ratings.
- We have become vegan registered with the Vegan Society.
