Put bamboo to work in more than just your bathroom
Thanks to bamboo, we've begun to put a stop to what toilet paper does to our trees.
At a loss of 25,000+ trees per day, the traditional toilet paper industry contributes to a significant share of global deforestation. Along with that comes the loss of animal habitats, disruption to delicate ecosystems, erosion, increased Co2 levels, and degradation of soil quality.
As eco-conscious consumers, we have the power to turn the industry around with every purchase of a bamboo toilet paper roll. ecoHiny is proud to be a part of that. However, we want you to know that there's more.
But bamboo is not just for your bathroom!
There's a growing trend to make many everyday household items from bamboo. Suppose you've already upped the sustainability factor of your home by adding ecoHiny 100% bamboo toilet paper to your list of essentials. In that case, you might be interested in other ways to include this super plant in your purchases.
Bamboo products are revolutionizing the way we live by providing sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives to traditional materials. From bamboo clothing to bamboo cutlery, bamboo is bursting onto the scene, and ecoHiny is here for it!
We've put together a list of our favorite bamboo options that exceed their conventional counterparts. We'll remind you of what bamboo has to offer and then present you with our must-have products.
Let's Review the Benefits of Bamboo
When you purchase a product made of bamboo, you're getting more than you might have imagined.
- Long bamboo fibers allow it to have incredible strength as well as supreme softness
- Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial
- Bamboo grows naturally without fertilizers and pesticides
- Products made from bamboo recycle and compost better than others, especially plastics
- Durability, strength, and longevity tend to be characteristics
Bamboo is completely renewable, unlike the plastics and other synthetic materials that make up so many of the products in our homes.
You can use utensils made from bamboo. They are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic. They're lightweight and durable, so you won't snap a spoon or find a prong missing from your fork!
Bamboo straws are a great option for those who want to reduce their plastic consumption and make a positive impact on the environment.
Bamboo straws are also reusable and can be washed and used again and again. By choosing bamboo straws over plastic straws, you can help reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills and oceans.
Bamboo fabric is an alternative to traditional cotton or synthetic fabrics. You're going to get all the natural antibacterial qualities of bamboo, plus enjoy a breathable, moisture-wicking material.
Add a stylish and sustainable touch to any room of your home! Bamboo flooring is durable and long-lasting, making it a cost-effective choice for homeowners.
Additionally, it is easy to clean and maintain, and it doesn't release harmful chemicals into the air like some other types of flooring. Don't forget your floors will be tree-free! We love that for you.
Okay, so it is back to the bathroom for this one, but it's a worthy mention. Unlike plastic toothbrushes, which can take hundreds of years to decompose and can end up in landfills or oceans, bamboo toothbrushes are biodegradable and compostable.
They are also antimicrobial, meaning they naturally resist bacteria and fungus growth, making them a healthier choice for your oral hygiene. By switching to a bamboo toothbrush, you can make a small but impactful change to your daily routine.
Bamboo Compostable Plates
Don't use disposable dinnerware; try bamboo instead. As with all things made with bamboo, they're super strong and won't bend or allow your food to soak through.
Each of these fantastic bamboo products is functional but also stylish. Bamboo has a unique look that fits into any decor, adding interest and texture.
A bamboo straw would look extra cool with your eco-friendly water bottle. Bamboo floors are a design element that can make your space stunning. Serving your guests on bamboo plates will up the wow factor of any meal. Don't overlook the aesthetic appeal of bamboo.

Disposing of Bamboo Products
What to do when you're through? That's a great question when one of our goals is to eliminate the extra waste created by plastics and other non-renewable products.
When you're finished with a bamboo product, it's important to dispose of it properly. If the product is still in good condition, consider donating it to a local thrift store or charity. If it's no longer usable, you can recycle it if your local recycling center accepts bamboo.
Alternatively, you can compost it if it's a 100% biodegradable bamboo product. Whatever you do, make sure to dispose of it in an environmentally responsible way; after all, that's the reason you chose bamboo to begin with!
