We use Moso bamboo which grows very fast in the mountains. The yield is naturally very high without the use of fertilisers or pesticides or any irrigation. 12-15 feet growth in just 3 weeks has been recorded in the spring season. This provides us with a sustainable, low impact crop as a brilliant alternative to polyesters, cotton, plastics, etc.
In addition bamboo is naturally antibacterial and excellent at regulating temperatures against your baby's skin.
Our nappies are made from 100% biodegradable bamboo fibre layers, chlorine free FSC approved wood pulp, elastic tabs, a little SAP and glue. We use about 30% as much SAP as regular brands and will continue to research any alternatives to the elastic tabs.
Our nappies will biodegrade over 60% in less than 3 months and can achieve 85% within 2 years. At this time no nappy can offer 100% yet. We're very proud to say that our wipes are 100% biodegradable.
Our nappy packaging is also biodegradable and we use used / recycled cardboard boxes for all our products.
