Cake Maternity strongly supports ethical, sustainable practices that not only benefit the environment, but also the communities which depend upon it.
Below are a few of the ways we are helping to make a difference.
Cake Maternity requires its factories to abide by a code of conduct to protect the rights of workers and the conditions under which they operate. Regular audits are conducted.
The use of natural fabrics, dyes and manufacturing procedures are encouraged with the environmental impact considered prior to embarking upon any project.
Particular attention is paid to waste, dumping and pollutants generated as part of the manufacturing process. The use of recycled packaging is another encouraged initiative.

A lot of women reading this would think that owning a bra is a basic everyday necessity. The simple truth is that many thousands of women all around the world do not own or will never own a bra and because of this these women often miss out on social gatherings, suffer from medial conditions and or lack self-confidence.
We have come across a wonderful Australian run charity named UPLIFT. Since 2005, Uplift has sent over 750,000 donated new and second hand bras to women all over the world.
Women of all ages in countries such as Fiji, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Philippines, Bali and some regions of Australia have all benefited from this wonderful charity.
Uplift not only collect, ship and help to distribute the bras to where they are needed most but they also offer an individual fitting service to ensure women are getting the correct sized bra. Often the bra received through Uplift will be the only bra she will own.
Cake Lingerie is proud to be associated with Uplift and have just donated over 1,000 nursing bras that will be distributed to birthing centers in countries such as Fiji and Nepal to ensure new mothers experience the benefits of a well-fitted nursing bra.
If you would like to be apart of this wonderful organization or would like to donate a bra or two visit UPLIFT website for more information, great stories and drop off points.
