A baby diaper is composed of a lot of different ingredients and features. One of these ingredients is fluff pulp. Fluff pulp is a plant-based cotton-like material (cellulose fibers) that creates a soft filling in the diapers. It is placed in the absorbent core where it absorbs liquid to keep your child’s skin dry.
To ensure that the fluff absorbs the liquid quickly and effectively, it is treated through a chemical process called either ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free) or TCF (Totally Chlorine Free), which is also done to obtain the clean, white, and bright characteristics of the material.
Today, ECF is the most commonly used process for treating fluff pulp in the baby diaper industry. But to make our products even more eco-friendly and as we see an increase in the demand to go completely chlorine-free, we have chosen to switch to TCF. Therefore, from March 2021 all of our baby diapers will not only be approved by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council) they will also be made with totally chlorine-free fluff pulp.
An ongoing journey
Thinking and acting responsibly has always been a part of the Bambo Nature DNA. Offering safe and eco-friendly products while at the same time caring for nature are some of our top priorities and we continuously optimize our products and production methods to create a better tomorrow. Our diapers are certified with a large number of ecolabels and made on energy-optimized machines with minimal overall energy consumption. For instance, 100% of our electricity consumption is covered by renewable energy and the fluff pulp comes from Swedish FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council) certified forests.
We always strive to do better tomorrow than we did today and the implementation of totally chlorine-free fluff pulp in our baby diapers is a natural step on our ongoing journey to become even more eco-friendly and offer you even better products for your children.
FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international non-governmental organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. FSC™-certified products are made from raw materials from well-managed forests and responsible sources. The label’s traceability and integrity are upheld through stringent control measures, and by choosing FSC-certified products, you help take care of forests and the people and wildlife that call them home.
