Bumboo's journey started with the Sunday papers, sparked by an eye-opening article on the devastating effects of deforestation caused by the toilet paper industry. Realising the immense ecological and social impact, we were inspired to explore alternatives and, above all, to take meaningful action.
our vision and mission
Our vision is to see a world where forests are abundant and protected.
Our mission is to inspire the world to shift from tree-based to tree-free household products.
We firmly believe that as the world embraces sustainability, everyday essentials like household paper products will be the first to undergo this transformation.
Make the switch today with Bumboo.
Have you ever paused to consider your daily routines and their consequences on the world around us?
Take toilet paper, for example, a household essential often overlooked. However, its production has dealt a severe blow to our ancient forests, vital components of our global ecosystem.
We envisioned a sustainable alternative to tree-based toilet tissue, one that not only supports but also motivates us to coexist harmoniously with our environment
Initially, we explored various brands of recycled toilet roll but found them lacking in quality, mainly due to the compromised integrity of recycled fibres. This led us to consider alternative virgin fibres, specifically for their superior softness. Thus, our journey into the remarkable realm of bamboo began.
As we delved deeper into the environmental merits of bamboo, the case for making the switch became clear. We recognised an opportunity to establish a business that not only provided a genuinely sustainable alternative to tree-based tissue but also allowed us to harness the power of business as a force for positive change.
bumboo; a tree-free alternative
Our eco-conscious toilet paper is crafted from 100% super-soft bamboo, one of the world's fastest-growing plants. It provides an eco-friendly, rapidly renewable alternative to traditional trees.
Our packaging is meticulously designed, and it's 100% plastic-free - even our sealing tape is eco-friendly, made from kraft paper and plant-based adhesive, reinforced with glass fibres.
We firmly believe that sustainability, comfort, and beauty can coexist harmoniously.
giving back to forests
To help support our vision and mission, we wanted to help give back to they planet too. So we created the ‘buy one plant one’ initiative in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects.
For every product that is purchased from bumboo, we will plant a tree on your behalf. So far we have planted 186,442 trees to date.
Eden Reforestation Projects are a charity that employ local villagers to plant trees, the forests are able to regenerate, and support and nourish the local community once again, thus the cycle of interdependence is restored.
