Our rolls are made of FSC Certified bamboo, organically grown and harvested in China.
Bamboo is a fast growing grass, capable of growing 3 feet in 24 hours. Bamboo requires less chemical processing than tree-based tissue because its fibers are naturally antibacterial. Most importantly bamboo requires no fertilizer, little water, and regenerates after cutting–so the more its harvested, the faster it grows! Read more about the benefits of bamboo on our blog.
We manufacture our products in China. Our bamboo is harvested from a privately owned grove, located on the same grounds as our paper plant (this eliminates added carbon-costs for transportation of materials).
Historically speaking, the Chinese are bamboo pulping experts. Their use of bamboo as an alternative fiber goes back almost 5,000 years, and their lands are home to rich bamboo resources (including the fastest growing varieties). Bim Bam Boo has forged manufacturing partnerships with some of China’s best factories. Not only are they on the cutting-edge of alternative-fiber manufacturing, but they believe in humane practices for both their employees, and the earth.
Sure thing! Certifications include:
- FSC Certified (Forest Stewardship Council)
- Elemental Chlorine-Free (ECF)
- ISO 9001 (Quality Management)

Most traditional TP is not created with your health in mind and is often made with bleaching agents, formaldehyde, & some known carcinogens. Bim Bam Boo is vegan & cruelty free–we don't use harsh chemicals or fragrances. Our toxin-free formula is also hypoallergenic and lint-free.
Don't worry, our TP is still velvety smooth and gentle on sensitive skin!
It sure is! Bim Bam Boo breaks down easily in all disposal systems including composting toilets and septic. To see how it works, check out our blog post.
When ordering our product online, your shipment arrives completely plastic-free. Each roll of TP is individually wrapped in tissue paper and shipped in a recyclable cardboard box. Plus, the tape is plastic-free!
Our plastic packaging (found at grocery retailers) is made out of a soft-plastic (LDPE 4) and our individually tissue-wrapped rolls are recyclable in municipalities that accept tissue paper and #4 plastics. Woo recycling!!
You betchya! We wouldn't dare cut down a new tree to make our rolls–as we say, "they're good to their core!" Feel free to recycle these cores, or checkout some of our fun up-cycling projects on Pinterest!
We use ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free) processing to whiten our tissue–it includes hydrogen peroxide as the primary compound, but also includes oxygen and chlorine dioxide. Learn more about our whitening process here.
