In 2015, twin brothers Max and Augustin were shocked by the scope of plastic pollution. They asked themselves, how to live their lives and create as little waste as possible, while empowering others to do the same. Their conclusion was simple: Offering alternatives to wasteful single-use products to tackle pollution at its source.
Bambaw is determined to have a carbon neutral supply chain. To achieve this, they calculate the total environmental impact of their supply chain. Together with the Carbon Trust, they map down the journey of every product from production till the arrival at the customer. The shipping method, the travelled kilometres and weight are monitored to give an accurate picture of the emissions. Bambaw has chosen to offset their impact on the climate by supporting an environmental project in Malawi.
Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world where most of the population uses biomass (wood, charcoal, manure or crop residues) for their cooking. Unfortunately, burning these resources has a noticeable impact on the environment and releases greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Bambaw supports a climate project that introduces highly efficient ceramic cookstoves to the people. The ceramic stoves help the population reduce the consumption of biomass to half of the current consumption.
