"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
We not only care about your baby's first years, but all the years to come. That's why we are constantly working to improve our products in ways that may also protect our planet for generations. As an Indian proverb said, "Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." For our children and their children, we are pursuing sustainable practices.
