Help

Hi, hello!

I'm Chelsea, a 23-year-old Aussie living in Sydney, Australia. Over the past few years I've really started to become conscious of my personal impact and making choices that are best for me and the environment.

In early 2020, I had an idea for an online store that sold sustainable products and also gave back to the community. When we launched in March, I committed to planting a tree for every order of our bamboo toilet paper (our first ever product which was stored in my grandparents' garage... aka 'The Warehouse'). 

Now, our range has grown to include all kinds of silky-soft bamboo essentials, we've created an incredible community of mindful Aussies and we donate 1% of our profits to different causes every month.

What I love the most is that our community gets to decide where the money goes, through our monthly polls on Instagram! It means that our customers can really make a difference through their purchase and contribute to something that they care about.

I'm so proud of what we have achieved since our humble beginnings, and I'm so excited for what the future holds! Thanks for joining me on this crazy journey!

Why we chose bamboo

Our mission is to provide sustainable essentials that don't compromise on luxury - and bamboo ticks nearly every box there is!

Sustainable

Bamboo is a sustainable grass, not a tree - it can grow up to 1 metre in 24 hours, uses 30% less water than hardwood trees and produces 35% more oxygen, too!

Zero nasties

Bamboo is a hardy plant with no natural pests, meaning there's no need for pesticides or other nasty chemicals to grow it.

Skin-friendly

It's got wonderful properties that are great for skin - bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial.

Soft & strong

It's luxuriously soft and stronger than steel - literally!

The Bambu Impact

Every month on Instagram, we ask our community to vote for a cause that means something to them. We then donate 1% of our profits to the cause that receives the most votes!

So far through this initiative we have planted over 1000 trees in bushfire-affected regions of NSW, donated to local animal shelters in the Sutherland Shire and contributed to a number of other charitable organisations.

We are so grateful to everyone who has continued to support this initiative and allowed us to give back to the community!
