Who are Mama Bamboo – Our Story
We are Jennie and Laura. We’ve been friends since university and supported one another as we’ve each grown, struggled and succeeded through careers and parenthood.
Two years ago, having been less than thrilled with what was commercially available at the time, I had the mad idea to create my own nappy brand. Jennie was the first person I turned to to help me make this a reality.
Together we’ve built Mama Bamboo because we were both horrified by the general acceptance of nappy rash as a part of a baby’s early life and by the mind boggling facts that 8 million single use plastic nappies are thrown away every day.
At the heart of everything we do is your babies’ health and comfort. As two mums 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 secondly we really want to produce a solution that is much kinder on the environment. There’s no getting round it, babies use a lot of stuff in the first couple of years and much of it is plastic, single use, and less than earth friendly. But it doesn’t all have to be. Disposable nappies and wipes can be made using sustainable materials. And all packaging can be compostable or recycled ♻️.
The first European Nappy company to achieve B-Corp status
A B-Corp business is one 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… and we’re thrilled to say we passed the test!
Mama Bamboo Donates!
Did you know? We donated funds to both the NSPCC & WWF charities where we adopted 8 animals through the ‘Gift Adoption Scheme’.
We also supported Home Start & Porch Box with nappy donations for underprivileged families here in the UK. A total of £8000 worth of nappies had been donated in 2020, and we couldn’t have been happier to play our part in such an important scheme.
Plus, we’re a Platinum Friend of the ‘Bamboo Village’ in Uganda. Here, we’re able to create and support local jobs within the bamboo plantation and community business village – a great way to boost the local community & oversee future achievements! Through this partnership, we have afforested an area of Uganda, meaning enhanced soil consistency, fertility and improving the ability for locals to plant small sustenance farms every day. Meaning that the community can become more self-sufficient. It’s a win, win!
Bamboo is Best!
Bamboo grows without gallons of irrigation, unlike cotton. Plus, the bamboo plant doesn’t need chemicals, pesticides, or fertilisers to grow. By using Bamboo as the core component for our products we ensure that we’re using a plant with low water consumption, low needs for pesticides and sustainable certifications. So, when we say #BambooIsBest, it’s not just for your baby it’s for the environment too.
Don’t forget, we’re the ONLY company to use 100% compostable packaging. We can proudly say that we have developed & launched 80% compostable products and switched to 100% home compostable packaging. We’re #ProPlanet through and through!
Lastly, we launched the #NappyRevolution campaign, where we called on DEFRA to change the way councils handle nappy and wipe waste, because frankly, there needed to be a change (and fast!).
Looking to the future
But our efforts won’t end there, we are dedicated to continually work hard to improve things for your baby and the environment. That’s why we are tasking ourselves to ensure that 20% net profits are donated to charitable causes in 2021, to continue our support for the WWF, The Little Village Project and The Bamboo Village.
We also promise to conscientiously recruit to balance gender and diversity, as well as reflect that diversity across all marketing materials and imagery to ensure that Mama Bamboo is fully inclusive.
Here’s to a great 2021!
