Sustainability is a hot topic nowadays. We at Birthpools are also very aware of the impact we have on CO2, waste and sustainability.
Through our cooperation with Trees for All, we compensate for our CO2 emissions. Even so much that we operate in a CO2 negative way (i.e. we compensate more than we produce). Through this foundation, we plant 150 trees every year, of which 75 in the Netherlands and 75 abroad. This ensures a CO2 offset of 10 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Trees for All is a CBF-recognised charity. They plant forests in the Netherlands and abroad for a better climate, more biodiversity and healthier living conditions.

With every order, we donate 650 litres of water to the Third World. Exactly as much water as is used in a 2-person birth pool. By now, we have donated 12,032,600 litres of water to MadeBlue. Good for at least 165 people for 10 years or more.
The Made Blue Foundation wants to give as many people as possible access to clean drinking water. They invest in water projects in countries where this is badly needed.

We have a recycling programme for our birth pools (professional and personal). When we receive defective or written-off birth pools in return, we make sure they are prepared for recycling. In cooperation with Vinylrecycling, our birth pools are reduced to new raw material. The new raw materials are used for boots, flooring and garden hoses, among other things.
In addition, a recycling bag is being developed that will allow consumers to return used disposables to us in the near future. Thus, even these materials can be reduced to new, clean raw material at Vinylrecycling.
