Hurray! We’re a finalist at the MumpreneurUK Awards!

We’re delighted to announce that we’re in the final line up of the national Mumpreneur Awards, an annual ceremony that celebrates parents throughout the UK who manage the difficult task of juggling business with family life.

from babies with love has been shortlisted for the Best Green Business Award, which is open to businesses that provide eco-friendly or ethical products and services in the UK. Having reached the finals of The Mumpreneur Awards, from babies with love founder Cecilia Crossley said “we’re working hard to be green, to make a positive social contribution and to break new ground for social enterprises – so I’m absolutely delighted we’re a finalist for the Mumpreneur Best Green Business Award.”

We recognise that there are impacts from the raw materials (particularly the growth of cotton), the manufacture, the distribution, the use and the disposal of our products. We work hard to minimise our environmental impacts and maximise our social impacts by:

  • giving all our profits to charities supporting orphaned and abandoned children
  • selling products made from organic cotton – which we believe are better for our babies and better for the planet, recognising that we’re fundamentally reliant on the land and soil, so should look after it
  • working with suppliers whose values we support
  • promoting the social enterprise model
  • using only recycled, recyclable and compostable packaging and materials where we can
  • encouraging our customers to minimise their environmental impacts from the way they buy and use the products
  • encouraging the recipients of our products to pass them on to friends, family, or to charity, once their babies have grown out of them.

Find out what you can do to help further minimise environmental impact and increase social impacts of our products here 

Judging our entry will be a panel of top entrepreneurs including Glamour Magazine’s Editor-In-Chief, Jo Elvin, but we have to wait until 30th September, when the winners will be announced at The Mumpreneur Conference.   This event is open to all parents who juggle family and business, and also for those interested in taking the plunge and starting up. Tickets can be purchased through the MumpreneurUK website, where you’ll find a whole range of resources and information for business mums.

So, fingers crossed for the finals!
