Top 5 Bamboo Products for Your Sustainable Home

by Simeon Nikolov on April 16, 2021

Bamboo products are the newest sustainable swap that you can make in your home to cut down on plastic. In general, bamboo is fast-growing, renewable, absorbs large amounts of CO2, produces more oxygen than other plants, and thrives without pesticides. The following bathroom and kitchen items are plastic-free, tree-free alternatives made from bamboo specifically with the environment in mind.


  1. Bamboo dental floss

Bamboo floss is made out of woven bamboo fiber, candelilla wax, and peppermint essential oil. Compared to other dental flosses, bamboo dental floss is slightly thicker and allows you to remove plaque and bacteria between your teeth more effectively.

This product is for all people who care about both environmental and dental health. It comes in a plastic-free glass container and is shipped in an eco-friendly and recyclable paper box. It’s 100% vegan, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free, and it’s a must-have for all sustainable households! You can also order bamboo dental floss refills when you run out for a truly zero-waste approach.


  1. Cotton swabs

There are 1.5 million disposable cotton swabs produced every single day, and because they’re intended to be a single-use product, you can bet just as many end up in landfills.

Boonboo now offers plastic-free, biodegradable, and sustainable cotton swabs that are made from bamboo. They’re the ideal alternative to plastic buds and do not contain any dyes, chemicals, or plastics. Plus, they’re shipped in a cyclable cardboard box.


  1. Toilet paper

Toilet paper was a hot commodity in 2020. Yet, so many of the brands you buy at the grocery store aren’t sustainable or renewable. It’s time to start putting our environment first with bamboo toilet paper.

Bamboo toilet paper is made from native bamboo pulp that’s tree-free. This makes it both biodegradable and renewable. Bamboo is also incredibly regenerative (it could grow up to 3 feet in 24 hours!), which means this is the perfect source for an item we use so much of.


  1. Straws

Over the last few years, single-use straws have come under fire. Now, you have a great alternative to drink your juice, smoothie, cocktails, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and any other beverage. Bamboo drinking straws are a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic straws that will last for years. They’re reusable, easy to clean and offer you the opportunity to protect the environment daily.


  1. Beeswax food wraps

How often do you use plastic wrap or aluminum foil to preserve food or leftovers? These kitchen tools are single-use and go right to the landfill after. Fortunately, Boonboo now offers are new environmentally friendly and plastic-free alternative with beeswax food wraps.

Beeswax wraps are a washable and reusable way to preserve food. They come in three different sizes to cover cups, bowels, plates, and/or pans. Due to the qualities of beeswax, they’re food safe and help to keep your food fresh.
