Greening ones home while preserving the earth’s natural resources just got a whole lot easier with the launch of Bambooee Reusable Towels. Bambooee makes joining the anti-paper revolution by boycotting paper towels super easy by providing a certified organic, reusable alternative. It’s easy to make the switch. Made of earth-friendly bamboo, Bambooee perforated towels hang on any standard paper towel dispenser without hanging the environment out to dry like regular paper towels do.
In recent years, two environmental issues are very much on everyone’s radar: global warming and deforestation. In fact, in early April, the results of a new study put the national spotlight back on global warming. Funded by the National Science Foundation and reported in “Nature,” it presented compelling evidence that carbon dioxide is to blame for much of the environmental problem. At the same time, MongaBay.com reported that the environmental action group Greenpeace has called for “zero deforestation globally by 2020.”
Made of organic bamboo, Bambooee, the paper towel replacement, advances both of these eco issues. Unlike the trees from which traditional paper towels are made, Bambooee is fabricated from the world’s fastest-growing plant, Bamboo, that requires no fertilizers, pesticides or insecticides. Indeed, it is harvested using sustainable and green practices that allow the bamboo to continue to grow.
Bambooee’s eco-friendly benefits don’t stop there, though. Because it can be machine washed and reused 25 times or more, one roll of Bambooee replaces 60 rolls of the average paper towel. In the process, it reduces waste as well as the carbon footprint humans leave behind. Given that 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced each and every day, if every human being on the planet were to switch to Bambooee, over one million tons of such waste could be eliminated every year. Bambooee is also certified organic and biodegradable.
Those making the switch to Bambooee, however, need not worry that their earth-friendly concession will result in inferior quality and results. In fact, the product is stronger, more durable and more absorbent than the paper towels they’re used to using.
Bambooee is available at retailers throughout the United States and Canada and online at www.Bambooee.com . Retail price for one roll is $12.99 or two rolls for $20.99. Bambooee debuted at this year's Expo West in March and won the Best of the West Award.
Made from a sustainably grown organic bamboo source, Bambooee makes it easy to make the change from non-environmentally-friendly paper towels to reusable towels. One 20-sheet roll of Bambooee replaces 60 rolls of traditional paper tower. Machine washable and reusable, Bambooee is designed to drastically reduce the 3,000 tons of paper towel waste produced every single day. www.Bambooee.com
