At Sustain a Living, our vision is a world where everyone uses sustainable products, produce no waste and consume few resources in order to remain within the planet boundaries.
The first step of this vision was to introduce the cloth diaper brand Sustain a Bum in 2013 order to reduce diaper waste and resource use in Europe and North America by providing beautiful, reliable, one-size-fits-all to consumers.
Moving forward, we are enlarging our range to provide sustainable hygiene products to people from 0 to 99 years old: it starts with menstrual cups and organic condoms!
