Must Have Bamboo Products For Your Sustainable Home
Bamboo products are a great and practical way to cut down the plastic in your life.
Everyone has their own reason for wanting to quit plastic. Maybe you want to reduce waste; maybe you want less stuff filling up your house, your bin and your life. For me it came down health and the environment.
If we had a magic wand, we’d like to make sure every product would be long-lasting, easy to recycle and made from eco-friendly resources. Sadly, we don’t have that magic wand. But if we did, it would be made from bamboo!
When you decide to quit plastic for sustainable alternatives like bamboo you are not only creating good new habits for yourself but also for others who would like to join this new environmental movement.
Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly plants. It is a super sustainable alternative due to its naturally renewing properties.
Bamboo products can directly reduce the amount of plastic ending up in an ocean, river and landfill. Just make these simple eco swaps that are better for you and the planet.
Natural Bamboo Cups
Bamboo cups are extremely strong, moisture resistant, heat tolerant, and dishwasher safe our bamboo cups are made for everyday use and can be enjoyed for years.
Our bamboo cups are cut by hand just below a natural 'notch' in the bamboo which creates a natural base. Next is sanding... a lot of sanding to remove any hard edges and create a smooth finish.
Sanding the inside is especially hard with custom tools needed to get a quality result. Finally a layer of natural bees wax is applied in two coats to seal and protect the bamboo cup.
How cool is that, bamboo cups are made from just one large piece of bamboo. Amazing!
Reusable Bamboo Straws
We all know that plastic straws are a problem, but what can we do about it? A great alternative is using bamboo straws which is one of the only 100% natural and reusable alternative to nasty plastic straws.
Bamboo drinking straws are all-natural and reusable making them one of the easiest ways to eliminate plastic waste in your household.
Bamboo straws are simply young growth bamboo cut to length and is naturally anti-microbial, sustainable, ethical and environmentally friendly.
Did you know? Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, creates 35% more oxygen than trees and needs virtually no water to grow.
Bamboo drinking straws are a fun and eco-friendly alternative that can be used with any beverage. They're much safer to use than single-use plastic straws as they are chemical-free and less likely to have any harmful bacteria.
Reusable Bamboo Cutlery Sets

One of the most frustrating things about plastic utensils is their tendency to break when you need to pick or cut a tough piece of food. High-quality bamboo cutlery is durable and sustainable and will last for several years.
Did you know that billions of plastic utensils get disposed of each year, and a lot of them end up in our environment.
Save the environment with your smile by replacing your plastic toothbrush with bamboo toothbrushes.
In Australia, over 30 million toothbrushes are used and disposed of by Australians each year, amounting to approximately 1000 tonnes of landfill each year.
Purchasing bamboo toothbrushes instead of the plastic ones sets you on a one-way road to saving the planet significantly. Bamboo toothbrushes are a healthier and more natural choice.
The bamboo toothbrush handles are curved making them comfortable to hold and heat treated giving a quality finish and long life. Soft nylon bristles are attached that have a tapered shape to make them thin and flexible for better cleaning between the teeth and gums.
When properly taken care of, they will last just as long as regular plastic toothbrushes, if not longer.

Little changes like these can really add up when we all do our part. Something as simple as saying 'no' to a plastic straw can start a conversation about why you are avoiding them.
Already we have seen a movement by thousands of cafes and restaurants around Australia to remove or hide plastic straws in their establishments.
We've had hundreds of conversations and discovered that the impetus for quitting plastic is personal. Everyone has a different unique story - it might be from swimming into a swarm of plastic on the beach or seeing images of distressed sea life.
Change occurs with a trigger, sometimes it happens quickly when a critical mass of people finds they're connected by a desire to do something differently.
What's driving change is us. All those efforts around the world - small and large to address plastic pollution and to refuse plastic packaging are sending powerful messages to decision makers that more and more people want to shop with the knowledge they are not adding to the single use plastic problem.
