Who Are Mama Bamboo?
We are parents.....just like you, we have a passion for our children and their welfare, their health and their future.
And we are worried....8 million plastic nappies and 30 million plastic wet wipes are used every DAY in the UK. Not only is this a huge pollution issue, but these products are not good for our babies’ delicate skin.
When our CEO Laura Crawford found that her baby’s bottom was persistently red and sore from the plastic nappies, but she couldn’t find a high-performing, sustainable alternative, she decided to do something about it.
Mama Bamboo was born from Laura’s sense of responsibility, not only to her own children, but to every baby suffering from nappy rash and to Mama Earth herself. And as Laura’s team, we are all devoted to this same mission. In creating Mama Bamboo, we believe we have found the perfect blend of sustainability, performance, and convenience to make your life and your baby's life that much better today and tomorrow.
At the heart of everything we do is your babies’ health and comfort. As parents to young children, we are intrinsically aware that we all want the best for our babies. Using bamboo, we truly believe we’ve found the most natural, luxuriously soft, antibacterial, breathable solution which helps control nappy rash, AND is kinder to Mama Earth.
Bamboo is the fastest, organic growing crop on earth. It requires no pesticides or fertilisers, and no false irrigation. Bamboo is a 7x more effective carbon sink than any other woody crop. It is nature's own 'little miracle'.
We know parenthood is a beautiful, albeit exhausting, journey. By delivering the convenience and performance of our award-winning, sustainable bamboo products right to your door, we hope to make green parenting, not only possible, but much easier.
“Best for baby, best for you and best for Mama Earth too”
