SUSTAINABILITY

Everyday life as a mom can be very hectic and non-stop. You are (co-)responsible for so many things, the well-being of the children, who have emotional needs but also demands for entertainment, the household, even if you have help, a lot of things are left behind that need to be cleaned up or taken care of, social events , birthdays, weddings, or simply visits, and and and. The list sometimes seems endless.

Over time this can be very energy draining and it is important to have a support system. Someone who can relieve some of the mental load, someone who can look after the children for a day or have time for a cozy bath alone with a good book and nice music.

Our mother nature has been doing exactly this for ages and is therefore dependent on our help in the support system.

Therefore, it is my constant endeavor to use your resources carefully and to pay attention to your needs and thus do my part to relieve your burden.

As mums, it is particularly important to us that our world continues to be beautiful and worth living in in the future. Let us find better alternatives together for a future that can give our children and all future generations a basis.

Our contributions to Mother Nature's support system so far:

Products

We put a lot of effort into selecting our suppliers and pay attention to their fairness and sustainability efforts. For example, we have clothing from production in Switzerland, Portugal and Ukraine. We are particularly pleased about this because the supply chains are shorter and a lot of CO2 emissions can be avoided.

We also always have products in our range that are made in China. This is because the factories and know-how for certain products are simply strongest there. However, it is important to us that appropriate measures are still taken to ensure that this production and shipping is as sustainable as possible.

We are aware that this is not a perfect world, but we are trying to find a good balance.

Shipment

Mailing bags

Everything that doesn't get any rough edges or dents during shipping is shipped in our compostable shipping bags. They are made from cornstarch and can decompose within 45 days in an ideal composting environment.

The exception to this are adhesive strips, as there are currently no adhesive strips that are compostable. So please separate this before you put the shipping bag in the compost.

They are certified for industrial composting (EN/DIN 13432, AS 4736, US ASTM D6400) and composting on household compost (AS 5810).

Kraft paper

Your ordered products will be wrapped in kraft paper. On the one hand, we like the look of the paper and that it helps absorb shock, but on the other hand, I think it's great that it consists largely of recycled fibers .

The fact that it looks like a package under the Scandi Christmas tree is “the cherry on top”.

plastic

Any plastic from other manufacturers that is not necessary for hygiene reasons (e.g. pacifiers) will be removed by us before shipping, collected separately and disposed of professionally, so you no longer have to worry about it. We think it's much nicer to be able to touch the products straight away anyway.
