In 2020 bbhugme began using Biofoam® beads filling for our nursing pillows, and in 2021 we have extended the use of Biofoam® to include all our newly manufactured products in our pregnancy pillow range.
Prior to 2020 our pillows were manufactured with TOXPROOF certified and food grade expanded polystyrene (EPS) beads. A material with natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, tested and certified per applicable standards.
Biofoam® looks similar to EPS and has similar properties. Biofoam® is produced from plant and vegetable waste and is certified industrially compostable in accordance with EN 13432.
Our transition to partner with Biofoam® reflects our sustainability goals here at bbhugme and a result of Biofoam®'s focus on innovative sustainable solutions and EPEA Cradle-2-CradleSM Bronze certification.
If you have purchased a pillow directly from us, through one of our partners or clinics, and would like more information about our transition to Biofoam®, please reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
