10 Things You'll Love

About Bim Bam Boo
It’s no secret that COVID-19 brought with it a humongous toilet paper shortage. People started shoveling any toilet paper product on the store shelves into their shopping carts and giving death stares to others who did the same. What many of these TP hoarders don’t realize is that what you wipe with actually can have a larger impact on your life than you think. Your body, your septic system, and the environment can all be negatively impacted by the type of toilet paper you buy. So, you guessed it, it’s time for a change! Here are ten reasons why you’ll absolutely love switching to Bim Bam Boo toilet paper:
1. Designed by a vulva-owner, for people with vulva’s
That’s right, our luxurious toilet paper was designed specifically with vulva health in mind. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about some of your favorite name brand toilet papers. Many toilet papers contain unnecessary harsh chemicals, dyes, and fragrances that can negatively affect vulva health. If you suffer from irritation and infection down under, switching to a non-toxic toilet paper like Bim Bam Boo may be exactly what you need.
2. Sustainable and good for the planet
We all want to play our part in giving back to the earth, so why not start by finding a more sustainable toilet paper option? Bim Bam Boo is made with a unique, FSC certified, 100% bamboo formula. Since bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth, it is an incredibly sustainable alternative to tree products. Using bamboo products ultimately protects against deforestation, damage to animal habitats, and pesticide use. Check out our blog post on all-things bamboo related to learn more about why you need to make the switch to bamboo!
3. No Fragrances and Dyes
Many toilet paper products contain synthetic fragrances and dyes in order to maintain a fresh scent and appearance. Unfortunately some of these additives can cause allergic reactions in your nether region. Bim Bam Boo is proudly free from fragrance and dye additives...and our toilet paper is still fresh and plush.
4. pH neutral
Did you know that many conventional toilet paper brands contain toxic chemicals like formaldehyde? These additives, while not necessary, can severely alter the important vaginal pH balance in your body. Here at Bim Bam Boo, your health is our #1 priority, which is why our toilet paper is made with a pH neutral formula. In other words, there are none of those freaky chemicals that will negatively affect your body. We want your wiping experience to be both comfortable and healthy!

5. Lint free
If you’re new here and have never heard the term clitty-litter, listen up: Those linty leave-behinds when you wipe with a crumbly toilet paper matter! Often those crumbles from conventional tree-based toilet paper are laced with chemicals that produce that itchy, irritating feeling. Toilet paper lint that is not taken care of can lead to yeast infections, contact irritation, and even UTIs.
Bim Bam Boo toilet paper is strong and smooth, which means that each wipe has a lint-free (no clitty litter!) guarantee.
6. Softer than recycled paper
Recycled paper products are great for the environment, but can feel more stiff and rough to the touch. If you want an eco-friendly and hygienic toilet paper that has a luxurious wiping sensation, make the switch to Bim Bam Boo. Our bamboo goes through a special production process that makes our toilet paper feel feel silky smooth, without the extra help from any chemical additives.
7. Septic-safe and Biodegradable
Clogged pipes are the worst! The good news is that you can prevent them by avoiding those ultra-thick, 3-ply, heavy duty toilet papers. Bim Bam Boo’s toilet paper formula is 100% biodegradable, which means it will dissolve faster in your septic system but still strong enough to make sure you are totally clean. Check out our Septic-Safe blog to learn more about what NOT to flush.
8. Compostable and Recyclable Wrapping Options Available
We understand that our community values plastic-free wrapping, which is why we have created options for our lovely Bim Bam Boo customers. When ordering online, our 24 pack rolls are each individually wrapped in recyclable tissue paper and dyed with natural soy-based inks.
9. Inclusive and Diverse team: Advocates for diversity and inclusion
Bim Bam Boo believes strongly in inclusivity. We are a female-founded, privately owned company with a diverse, lean staff. In 2020, we committed to allocating 80% of our partnerships budget to black & brown-led organizations. Additionally, 100% of our lifestyle shoots will feature black models and will be photographed by black creatives. We will continue to hire a diverse team and board of advisors, and look for every opportunity to increase diversity in all that we do.
