In 2019 we launched our first collection made from recycled materials. The material has been re-manufactured from plastic bottles, turning a piece of rubbish into an item that can be used for years to come and to date we have recycled over 425,000 plastic bottles.
All our materials are made and sourced to ensure that they do not contain any nasty chemicals and all the treatments used on the materials are environmentally friendly. We do not use leather on our products and use vegetarian glues, so all our products are animal friendly. Making them the perfect choice for parents.
This year we decided to make a change and partner with Ecologi, a platform to help businesses become more climate positive by offsetting their carbon emissions through the planting of trees. Together with Ecologi we are planting a tree for every order placed.
To date, we have now planted over 4,500 trees and counting. Ecologi states that the average person would need to plant between 725 - 1,000 trees to offset their carbon for the year. With 10 employees at Babymel HQ, we are on track to this marker by the end of the year but we know we can do bigger and better.
