MAMYWENE studio is an organization based in the grounds of the old shipyard in Gdańsk Poland, run by two energetic women. The studio specializes in ecological and participatory activities, creating social commitment projects and interesting workshops. It also helps with employee integration and implementation of the assumptions of corporate social responsibility.
MAMYWENE aims at showing natural alternatives to cosmetics and cleaning products but also inspires to give products a second life through their creative usage and producing interesting, useful items.
In one of their social innovation projects I Pack to My Own, MAMYWENE encourages to replace disposable plastic packaging with their reusable counterparts by such activities like sewing shopping bags and conducting lectures. “Thanks to this, we reduce the amount of waste produced and we care for the environment, but also for our own health” says Alicja Żarkiewicz, MAMYWENE co-founder. The project received the patronage of “Gdańsk without plastic” which promotes ecological attitudes, taking care of nature but most of all reducing the amount of plastic used in everyday life.
