A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
"our mission is to minimise the impact on mother earth
and maximise our positive impact on motherhood."
CHANGE BEGINS WITH US, ONE CONSIDERED ACTION AT A TIME
The Mammae mission is to minimise our impact on mother earth and maximise our positive impact on motherhood.
Through introspection and evaluation, we have closely identified where our brand can impart an immediate and long term difference, because every conscious action that we apply now, will bring about the change that is needed for a better tomorrow in protecting the future generation for our children; because sustainable action and environmental care will become unequivocally vital throughout their lifetime.
Sustainability and social conscience plays an integral part to every facet of our business workings. We must collaborate together as a united collective to ensure sustainable behaviour becomes commonplace, with a greater awareness towards our human and environmental impact.
Driven and responsible to do our part, we are committed to moving towards a better direction, connecting every element throughout the design process.
Mammae continuously strive toward minimising our carbon footprint, contributing to a circular economy in the way of practising ethical sourcing and manufacturing. Within our offshore logistic operations, a concerted effort has been made to reduce our carbon footprint by consciously reducing the use of aviation with the vast majority of collections shipped via sea freight.
With the compromised condition of our planet, now more than ever in these challenging times, we carefully assess the processes of who we partner with and how we produce our collections. Covering both local and offshore suppliers, Mammae has discovered a cooperative group of ethical companies who share the same values and commitment to humanity, sustainability and environmental care.
The more we grow, the more responsibility rests upon our shoulders and while we recognise that perfection doesn’t exist, we are continuously committed to navigate the complexities of this multifaceted industry, embodying our pillar of purpose; slow, conscious and considered designs for a better tomorrow.
It is our willingness to grow the overall percentage of sustainable materials across all categories with every new collection. We do so by integrating sustainable thinking at the initial concept phase, where we consider the product’s entire lifecycle and its broader impact on humanity and the environment.
Throughout our business, we work within a set framework of practices and unwavering values, knowingly aware that it’s within our production and logistics that we can impart the biggest difference when it comes to our impact.
In carefully crafting our signature products, where possible, we partner extensively with our local and international artisans, to ethically produce small batch-supply and pre-order strategies, by way of minimising wastage, using earth-friendly materials, and certified organic botanicals, all free from harmful and unnecessary ingredients.
Mammae is setting ambitious goals towards transparency across all tiers of our supply chain and will continue to keep our customers informed as we evolve with the ever changing industry.
Our aim in all we do is to work towards a sustainable circular economy.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Replenish. Restore.
A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
"we stand in solidarity with mother earth,
embodying her power, essence and fragility."
Mammaē is committed to sourcing the highest integrity across its fabrication safety, quality, working conditions and its environmental impact.
It is imperative that our mamas share an unwavering confidence across our product collection, so we want to be clear about the steps we are taking to ensure that our textiles are marked as the world's softest, safest and healthiest for both mother and baby in mind. This unwavering core value is what sets us apart.
Mammaē has partnered with a responsible textile manufacturer, who is trusted and independently certified, ensuring that the materials used throughout our fabric collections are ethically sourced and closely monitored during the full production process from farm to label and is carefully made without causing adverse harm to human health.
Mammae offer assurance that we are proud to wear the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® Class I label and GOTS Certification across all hand-sewn fabrications.
What Is Oeko-Tex Certification - Standard 100?
Oeko-Tex® is a worldwide association of independent research and testing institutes for product safety and sustainable production in the textile industry.
Standard 100 is the most well-known, trusted and strictest certification for product safety.
It is specifically granted to articles tested free of over 100 high level toxic substances.
What does “Class I” mean?
“Product Class I” is the strictest of all four classes in the OEKO-TEX® certification process, testing products for children up to the age of three for harmful substances. The additional requirement for saliva resistance means that colours and prints should not bleed or stain when babies suck on them.
What is GOTS Certification?
“The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.”
GOTS certified organic cotton means that our bamboo and cotton material has been ethically sourced, and monitored closely during the full circle production process. This includes the seeds used to harvest the cotton, the process of harvesting, the use of raw materials, and ensuring the products are manufactured responsibly up to the labelling. Mammae has instilled this is done to provide a trustworthy and reliable product guarantee for our mothers and their children.
A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
"Working towards a circular economy,
we aim to close the loop in production."
Mammae has explored a multifaceted landscape to uncover the most considered, ethical and innovative packaging materials available, all within the means of our young business capabilities.
Diverting plastic packaging from landfill is of great importance to us, with the majority of our protective packaging used to shield products during shipping, made from biodegradable, recycled and recyclable materials.
Where possible we aim to manufacture taking on a ‘peaceful packaging’ approach. Our luxurious textured paper stocks are sourced using resourceful FSC certified paper; ensuring that our materials have been harvested and produced in a socially, environmentally and responsible manner, being 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
Our protective tissue paper is also 100% recycled, acid, lignin and sulphur-free to ensure it will not leave behind any harmful chemicals throughout its decomposing lifecycle.
An estimated 5-13 million tonnes of plastic enters our oceans every year and this is expected to triple by 2040. So we have teamed up with POLLASTIC™ and working with coastal communities that are impacted by the compounding effects of pollution and poverty to remove plastic pollution from their beaches and river ways before it reaches our ocean. It's then recycled into our mailer bag packaging which is made up from 100% ocean bound plastic pollution - no virgin plastic is used.
Every POLLASTIC mailer provides a tracking number to trace the plastic back to source. Simply follow the instructions on the back of your mailer bag and discover it's impact.
Mammae’s bottle collection is thoughtfully manufactured using recyclable and reusable glass bottles to minimise further plastic production into landfill waste. In the near future, we aim to deliver a refillable biodegradable pouch and source our glass bottles from recycled materials.
A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
"Our sustainability values have formed the very essence of
our brands legacy and humble beginnings."
As an alternative to traditional petroleum-based ink, we opt to print our paper designs with soy-based ink; a unique type of renewable vegetable-based ink that is made from soy oil.
Soy inks carry low levels of volatile organic compounds, giving our workers more protection and reducing air pollution during the drying process.
Soy ink can degrade more than four times faster than traditional chemical ink whilst not leaving behind any petroleum-based products when decomposing.
Better yet, throughout our considered design process, we also choose to minimise as much ink where possible, opting for a minimalist design using an elegant blind emboss and deboss technique.
