KOKONO™ / KOKONO™: the inclusive circular crib

KOKONO™ is the first biodegradable crib conceived for low-income communities of Sub-Saharian Africa, precisely Uganda. It's been co-created together with end-users and protects babies from 0 to 12 months (in night and day-time) from animal attacks, co-sleeping practices (causing suffocation) and accidental hits in off-grid areas. It's made out from biodegradable materials and it is produced and distributed locally, thanks to a network of women selling it to poor communities and refugees. It's been patented by De-LAB to prevent fake items and reducing infant death rates in vulnerable communities. Its price is affordable and inclusive.
