We are passionate. We believe that our idea for safe, bamboo alternatives for disposable hygiene products will benefit our bodies and the environment. This is not work for us. This is a labor of love and makes us incredibly happy that we were able to create this for you.
We are a majority-women-owned company that is dedicated to educating people about the benefits of bamboo as an alternative for disposable products like wipes and tissue in order to conserve forestlands and limit the use of widespread petroleum-based disposable wipes.
Our baby wipes have been here since 2009, at a time when bamboo alternatives for tissue and wipes was barely known! BumBoosa Bamboo Products has been instrumental in paving the way for bamboo in this role.
Over a decade ago Sonja Sheasley began a quest to find the most environmentally responsible and non-toxic baby wipes. Along the way, she fell in love with bamboo and felt that its contribution in alleviating the burden that trees bear could be enormous. Already having some knowledge in herbalism, essential oils and natural product development, she researched bamboo non woven fiber for two years before launching BumBoosa Bamboo Products . BumBoosa became the first company in North America to supply wet wipes and bathroom tissue made from bamboo.
Today BumBoosa is licensed to Lamsoon Group, LTD and distributed alongside their other bamboo disposable products line, NooTrees. BumBoosa Founder, Sonja Sheasley, continues to be involved with promoting bamboo as one of 40 + World Bamboo Ambassadors around the globe, associated with World Bamboo Organization, and is involved in other environmental initiatives.
Our mission is to provide <bamboo> products that families not only feel good about, but <bamboo> products that also have the more serious objective of reducing the burden that trees bear due to the disposable products industries and limiting harsh chemicals and synthetic materials in our environment.
