Bamboo - Soft on baby's skin and softer on the environment
Minene- made for your baby, your family, your environment, your world.
At Minene, we have always prided ourselves on 3 things
STYLE | INNOVATION | QUALITY
As we head towards a new era, where the world focus is on the environmental effects of our consumerism and consumption, we knew we had to start looking at our baby and toddler products, ensuring we were still offering the best items to you.
We have been a cotton based brand for a long time, as cotton is soft, breathable and durable. Three important things when it comes to sensitive baby skin and the number of times a baby's belongings get put in the wash!
However, as the world changes, so must we. After some extensive brainstorming we decided it was time to see if/how we could change along with it! Not only do we look for ways to help the planet, but we keep your baby and your family at the forefront of our mind.
The answer? Bamboo! We now have a beautiful (and growing) range of bamboo swaddling muslins, bamboo blankets, dummy clips and teething rings.
Bamboo is 40% more absorbent than even the finest organic cotton, wicking moisture away from baby's skin, therefore keeping baby dry & comfortable. Bamboo can take in three times more water than it's weight meaning baby remains cool and dry longer. Bamboo is also seen to keep us cool in summer and warmer in winter.
So, we know why bamboo is good for our children, but what about our world?
Bamboo is seen as a sustainable crop; a fast growing grass, it requires no fertiliser as has a natural resistance to pests. Bamboo also self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn't need to be replanted and therefor cuts down on labour and machinery. When comparing the above to growing cotton; which requires large amounts of water, pesticides and labour - the answer looks pretty clear!
Like all things environmental, as well as baby related, it isn't an exact science and not all rules will apply every time. However, we at Minene think it is worth a try!
