Looking after your baby's wellbeing for now and for the future.
Sheepskin comes from nature and one day will rejoin nature.
With regular care, real sheepskin lasts a lifetime, but when it comes time to finally throw it out, sheepskin breaks down within a year and will give back to the earth all the nutrients kept inside the skin and fur.
Fake sheepskin however can take over 40 years to breakdown in nature and will in fact pollute the ground with micro-plastics and other toxic compounds. Always buy genuine sheepskin !
We are proud to be part of the Eco Packaging Alliance from noissue.
Their Eco-Packaging Alliance is a great way to contribute to global reforestation, and show off our eco-friendly packaging! For every order we make, they’ll plant trees for you in areas of need.
We are aiming to ensure as many of our products are recyclable in one way or another.
Our luxury magnetic snap shut keepsake gift boxes from The Tiny Box Companyare made from partly recycled materials and are fully recyclable once the magnets and the ribbon tab have been removed.
Our eco-tote bags are made from unbleached natural cotton. The strong weave ensures the bag is durable and will last use after use and when it comes time to finally throw it out, the natural cotton will biodegrade in as little as 5 months.
We are also proud to say that many of our products can last a lifetime with the correct care. We believe in making products last as long as possible to help keep waste to a minimum.
We source all of our Baa Baby sheepskin from New Zealand and Europe – these are from free roaming flocks and not intensively farmed. The sheepskin baby liners we use are then eco-tanned which ensures that the process is completely chrome free – important not only for your baby but also for the environment.
Both Fellhof (based in Austria) and Kaiser (based in Germany) also source their sheepskin from Europe. Their suppliers adhere to strict European legislation and their fleeces are sourced from herds that roam freely.
Our Baby safe sheepskin are eco-tanned, always chrome free and any dyes used are vegetable dyes. Medically tanned sheepskin is also a phrase that is frequently used and means that the fleece is not only baby safe but also has some additional qualities. Medically tanned sheepskin is always shorn in length (usually 25mm- 30mm) which is the optimum level for support and even weight distribution. The fleeces are dense and undergo additional quality control whilst the leather is soft and pliable. Our shorn hair lambskins from all our suppliers are medically tanned and all our long hair rugs are eco-tanned. In addition, a number of our suppliers also hold OEKO-TEX 100 certification.
We are very meticulous about which brands we stock here at Baa Baby.
We try to ensure that each brand and product meets our high standards of quality and sustainability.
1% for People & 1% for the Planet.
1% of every purchase you make with The Tartan Blanket Co will go to helping protect the environment and offsetting more carbon than they are producing, and 1% will go to charities and community projects around the world to help those in need.
They also aim to be completely plastic free by the end of the year and have been making roads in reducing their shipping packaging and only using recycled and recyclable plastic where there is not yet an alternative, while continuing to research alternative plastic free packaging for the future.
