Bamboo grows amazingly fast in its natural environment, almost 1 metre in a day. (up to 3.8cms in an hour)
No other plant on earth can do this which makes it the only woody plant that can keep up with the rate of human consumption and deforesstation.
Bamboo is the most sustainable material we can use - and it happens to also be super soft, absorbant and breathable too.
We don't understand why all nappies aren't made from bamboo (instead of plastic).
Mama Bamboo have joined a small group of companies to have been certified as Ethically Accredited by the Good Shopping Guide. Mama Bamboo scored 92/100 points in the Guide's comparison of nappy brands, making us one of the highest rated brands available in the UK.
Natural materials made of bamboo, hemp or organic cotton, offer your baby the highest degree of protection. Unfortunately, conventional baby nappies, clothing and bedding are made with plastics (polyester / polypropylene) and non-organic cotton, grown using synthetic pesticides and fertilizers and bleached and dyed with yet more harsh chemicals.
