Sustainable cloth nappy company Baba + Boo are donating 10% of sales of their ‘Moonlight’ nappy from the cosy collection.
The Altrincham based company which creates reusable nappies aims to help parents live simpler, more sustainable lives.
They are donating 10% of sales of their ‘Moonlight’ nappy from the cosy collection to the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity, supporting the ‘A Bed Every Night’ (ABEN) scheme which aims to find a safe secure place to sleep for those on the streets.
Eve Bell, Founder of Baba + Boo said “Last October we launched our ‘Cosy’ range and it hit home that being ‘cosy’ was such as privilege. There were people in Manchester that didn’t have a home, let alone a bed to sleep in. So we wanted to use that collection to raise funds to support those in need”.
Bell grew up in Salford and set up the company after having two children in close succession. She always knew she wanted to make a positive difference in the community.
She says; “Mancunians just have this helping nature, they just want to do anything for everybody and put other people first. Being Mancuniun is at the heart of what we do.
Vanessa Harworth, Head of the Charity comments; “There is such a nice link between the company and the charity – the idea of parents putting babies to bed every night and thinking about people who didn’t have a safe space to go to sleep in”.
She adds; “We’re thrilled with the support of Baba + Boo – as a small team we’re depending on collaborations and both individuals and companies coming together to help make change happen”.
Bell comments; “From a business point of view it’s not just network building but it’s community building. You are showing your community you are standing for something”.
So far the range has raised £1,500 for the charity, which is 50 nights’ accommodation as part of the ABEN scheme.
