Meet the Maker:
Rachel and Jeff founded Bambu over 20 years ago, with a mission that has remained unchanged: to reduce our use and reliance on plastic by providing people with beautiful, non-toxic product made from nature.
We left our jobs in corporate America almost 20 years ago to pursue the vision we had of a better way to do business. After watching big brands at the time view corporate responsibility as a shackle rather than a chance to improve, we started with an idea for a business where responsibility was an integral part of everything we did. Not just a department.
Bambu began as a case study for how business could be. We wanted to prove that you could have it all. Sustainable product with direct oversight, social responsibility, and a financially successful business. We knew it was possible for business to create positive change. Looking back, we’d like to think that the experiment went pretty well.
Having a purpose is what keeps us going. Finding the balance between style, eco and purpose lies at the core of everything we do.
