Love Our Mother: Why Mamava Supports the Climate Strike Rally
Mamava stands with the more than 140 businesses and hundreds of thousands of people rallying around the world on September 20 as part of the Climate Strike Rally. As a women-founded and women-owned company dedicated to improving the lives of all mothers and babies, we know that to ensure a livable planet and a humane future for our children, and for their children, we need to take action now.
Besides being dedicated to one of the most sustainable activities (breastfeeding), we’re a member of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility and actively support progressive state and federal policies, like paid family leave, universal health care, and a living wage. As a proud member of the B corp community, we value the B corp’s declaration of interdependence with a company culture that celebrates the strength of our individual gifts, while simultaneously recognizing our deep interconnectedness. And we recognize that climate action is deeply connected to our push for a more inclusive, just, and equitable world.
One of Mamava’s core values is agency—we foster a company culture where employees feel empowered to take control of their own destiny at the company and take creative risks. We support an engaged citizenry and actively encourage our employees to vote, participate in town meeting day, and attend public rallies, like the Climate Strike Rally, that support critical progressive action. On September 20 our office will stay open (so that we can help more moms have access to private lactation spaces at work and on the go!), but we encourage our employees to join the walkout and add their voices to the rally at noon in our beautiful home town Burlington, VT.
Mamava designs solutions to empower breastfeeding and pumping mamas on the go, like our freestanding lactation pods and lactation space locator app.
