Bambo was established on 1st May 1980 and is a family run business based in Denmark.
Bambo Nature nappies use materials sourced via the controlled Scandinavian Forestry, ensuring more trees are planted than felled. All materials used are approved by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency.
Charlie has visited the Bambo nappy factory in Denmark where the Bambo Nature nappies are made, and it really is an impressive facility. The factory produces virtually no waste, as everything is recycled. The small amount that is produced is incinerated and provides heating for the local community. 35% of Denmark's power comes from wind farms and 80% of the waste in Denmark is incinerated and used in local heating schemes.
About the Nordic Swan Eco Label
The Nordic Swan Eco Label stands for the highest environmental demands.
The purpose of the Swan label is to reduce the impact of everyday consumption on our environment and health.
Products marked with the Swan are less likely to cause environmental problems than similar products for the same purpose while offering the same quality.
Your health is considered, as there are strict requirements to Nordic Swan Eco labelled products when it comes to the use of additives and chemicals.
The Swan criteria apply to the entire life cycle of the products, and all the impacts on the environment are documented in writing.
The products must not contain any perfume or other fragrances (e.g. essential oils or plant extracts) lotions or other moisturizers, PVC or phthalates.
The Nordic Eco Label is usually valid for three years, after which the criteria are revised and the company must reapply for a licence. In this way, they ensure that products better suited to the environment are constantly being developed.
Bambo Nature nappies are the only nappies that have been awarded the Nordic Swan Eco Label
