More Than Just Packaging - Introducing A Brand New Look With Purpose
Sept. 23, 2020 | 10 mins | Zainab M.
At allBambu, we are passionate about all aspects of the brand we are building and what it stands for, which includes a commitment to quality, sustainability and beautiful design. Just like with our premium bamboo products, we are constantly evolving when it comes to our packaging. We strive to ensure it expresses who we are and what we make because our customers deserve to know it all. Through our design process, we look at every single detail to ensure consistently high standards across the board.
What's new with our Packaging?
Innovative design - Our new packaging not only gives you a perfect idea about the product by spelling out the features and benefits in English and French but also provides a visual reference of the product itself. You get what you see, and it eliminates the need to open the packaging to peek in before buying. This is a great value add and overall improved experience for all customers especially those who buy our products in physical retail locations
Sealed with Love and Care - All our oral care products i.e. Bamboo Toothbrush and Vegan Floss now have an additional layer of safety and hygiene whereby the products inside our box packaging are individually sealed in PLA wrappers. You may be wondering what is PLA? Polylactic Acid, commonly known as PLA, is a polymer made from renewable resources. Contrary to other thermoplastics that are petroleum-based, some of the raw materials used for PLA's production include corn starch, tapioca roots, or sugarcane. It is bio-based and compostable.
Eco-friendly and sustainable packaging materials - We can't stress enough how using eco-friendly materials for packaging is of paramount importance to us. It is true that the most eco-friendly packaging is no packaging at all. But sometimes it’s not possible to eliminate product packaging entirely. Despite that, we need to still address- How much packaging does our product need? How will it be used? Where will it end up? With our new designs, we are still committed to our goal of ensuring all our packaging is responsible, renewable and either recyclable or compostable. All our box packaging is made of white paperboard which is 100% recyclable. Paperboard packaging has better recycling statistics than almost any other packaging material in the marketplace*. Our paperboard originates from certified tree farms where trees are planted, harvested, and replanted specifically to be used in packaging, paper, and other consumables. The PLA wrappers for our oral care products are compostable which means it will breakdown into harmless natural compounds.

This is just the start of a journey, we are committed to exploring new ways of reducing the environmental footprint through our eco-friendly bamboo products, packaging, operations and supply chain. Stay tuned!
