2. How many rolls of paper towels does Bambooee® replace?
It depends how many paper towels you currently use. The average household uses 1 to 2 rolls of paper towels a week. 1 roll of Bambooee® has 20 reusable and machine washable sheets. Each sheet of Bambooee® can be washed up to 100 times. Just use one Bambooee® cloth each day and then throw them in the wash. That's almost 5 1/2 years of use. If you generally use one roll of paper towels a week, you could save yourself from buying up to 286 paper towel rolls. If you generally use 2 rolls of paper towels a week you could save yourself from buying 572 rolls of paper towels, That's quite a savings.

Use Bambooee® in the kitchen, on floors, in the bathroom, for kids' messes, for dusting, for your drying, absorbing and much much more.
1. What's so special about Bambooee®?
Bambooee® is rayon made from an organic bamboo source. The bamboo we use is harvested using sustainable and green practices. Once the bamboo is harvested, it regrows new sprouts every year. The harvesting techniques used by our growers assure that the bamboo forests where Bambooee® comes from continues to grow and yield the same amount of bamboo yearly. Regular paper towels are made from trees. Trees do not regrow once harvested.
7. Where do you get your bamboo from? Our bamboo comes from China. Bamboo is now routinely grown on Chinese land that families and villages own the rights to manage and harvest. China has allowed this kind of land management structure since economic reform in the 1980's with the aim of helping alleviate poverty of rural areas. This positive contribution to bamboo farmers has brought pride to their families and therefore they protect their land and harvest in a sustainable manner, guanranteeing a secure future for their children and generations to come. Bamboo makes sense since it alleviates the burden we currently place on trees and its such a wonderful renewable resource.
9. Is Bambooee® biodegradable or compostable? Bambooee® is not biodegradable. But we are currently working on a compostable version of Bambooee®. It should be available soon.
8. Where do you make Bambooee®?
Currently Bambooee® is made in China, close to the organic bamboo source it is made from.
