Our children's future depends on the world we will leave them.
Environmental sustainability is a principle that we, at J BIMBI®, hold very dear because we handle children products. Children are the future and It is up to us to leave them a better world.
This is why every day we commit ourselves to develop environmentally friendly baby apparel and products that respect the rights of all workers, that do not harm the planet or have as little impact as possible, while guaranteeing the highest quality and safety.
0-36 month bodysuits = lower impact on the environment
0-36 month bodysuits play their part in protecting the environment because by dressing babies with 0-36 months one-size bodysuit, the amount of bodysuits needed during their growth decreases. This saves energy and water for production and reduces disposal issues.
Let's calculate this together:
Traditional bodysuits cover the first 36 months of a baby’s life with about 9 sizes. Assuming you skip a few sizes during growth and that about 10 bodysuits per size are required, a baby would use about 50 bodysuits (5 sizes x 10 bodysuits) in the first 3 years of life.
Therefore, the minimum amount of bodysuits is fifty, but we are all well aware that the amount of bodysuits used, or at least purchased, can increase taking into account impulse buying (“that bodysuit is too cute; I must buy it!”), replacement of damaged/stained bodysuits and, above all, any gifts received from friends and relatives, especially in the first few months, when the baby grows at lightning speed and many items remain unused.
Using the one-size J BIMBI® bodysuits for newborns, which can be worn from birth to 3 years of age, 10 bodysuits are theoretically sufficient (1 size x 10 bodysuits) meaning a saving of 40 bodysuits per baby!
If we were to do this calculation on a national scale based on 400,000 births per year, the number of bodysuits that could potentially be saved is 16 million in Italy alone!
Organic cotton = saving resources and respecting the environment and people
J BIMBI® bodysuits, which have always been OEKO-TEX® certified – meaning they are free from harmful substances – can now also vaunt Organic Cotton models with GOTS certification because they are made from organic cotton.
J BIMBI® bodysuits are produced in a carefully selected company that is SA8000 certified, an important ethical validation that allows for the management and monitoring of every activity and process regarding people’s working conditions. Specifically, consideration is given to human rights, child labor, youth and child labor in general, professional development, enhancement and growth, working hours and pay, health and safety of workers.
71% less WATER
used for cultivation because organic farming uses natural rainfall and organically cultivated land retains up to 30% more water
62% less ENERGY
required for production compared to conventional cotton
USE OF NATURAL FERTILIZERS
supporting healthy ecosystems and improving soil quality
NO CHEMICAL PESTICIDES
Natural solutions protect the health of workers, soils and ecosystem and avoid water pollution.
In addition to being a safe, hygienic and perfectly sterilizable material, glass is natural, environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable. Choosing a glass feeding bottle means ensuring greater hygiene for babies during their first months of life, when they need it very much. At the same time, it means reducing the consumption of plastic, an issue that affects our society and is worth fighting for with small actions like this one.
Responsible packaging - more recycling and less plastic
We are working to reduce and remove all plastic packaging from our products, replacing plastic with recycled or FSC-certified paper and cardboard.
Regarding the remaining plastic packaging, they are all recyclable and were designed to be reused as containers (for example the sterilpods, containers for pacifiers, can be used as containers and sterilisation-holders in a microwave).
