What makes Mama Bamboo so sustainable?

Mama Bamboo was set up to address the key environmental issues within the Nappies industry. The brand manufactures its products using bamboo materials instead of cotton, which have a lower environmental impact, such as requiring far less water to produce.

Mama Bamboo’s packaging is a 100% compostable corn starch film, thus making it biodegradable to limit the amount of waste produced by the brand’s products.

Moreover, Mama Bamboo is involved in charity work to support important causes. This includes partnering with organisations such as WWF and supporting The Little Village Project and The Bamboo Village.

As a result, Mama Bamboo is permitted to use our Good Shopping Guide Ethical logo, which certifies the brand’s ethical status and allows consumers to recognise Mama Bamboo as an ethical brand.
