Global environmental challenges, such as climate change and pollution, are affecting the future of our planet. The United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 to address these challenges and create a more sustainable future. MamaP, a sustainable consumer goods company, aligns with the SDGs and contributes to achieving them. In this article, we'll explore how MamaP's practices align with the SDGs and help to create a better future for all.
What are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals?
The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure peace and prosperity for all. The 17 interconnected goals provide a framework for positive change in environmental, social, and economic sustainability. MamaP aligns with 14 of the 17 SDGs, including Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities, Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, and Goal 16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions.
How does MamaP meet the SDGs?
MamaP's mission is to provide earth-friendly alternatives to everyday products while supporting environmental and social justice groups with every purchase. MamaP practices Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production daily by selecting nontoxic, natural, and organic materials for its products, which are both climate-friendly and high quality. MamaP uses plastic-free, compostable, and biodegradable packaging with minimal ink. MamaP also uses the Seagrass Grow Program, one of the most effective ways to offset carbon.
Why is it important for businesses to meet the SDGs?
As the UN chief Antonio Guterres said, "Businesses need to put sustainability at the heart of their decision-making for the sake of humanity and their own bottom line." MamaP is a small business, but its sustainable practices contribute to positive progress and a better future for all. MamaP's practices align with the SDGs, which are valuable for each country to follow individually to provide a blueprint for inclusive and impactful global change.
In addition to global efforts, individuals can also contribute to achieving the SDGs by taking small actions, such as switching to a bamboo toothbrush or turning off the water when brushing your teeth. MamaP's sustainable practices align with the SDGs and contribute to creating a better future. By embedding sustainability into its processes and strategies, MamaP is doing its part to make the planet a better place.
