About

Bamboo Panda came about with the idea to start a change in the world, to make it easier for individuals and business to do the right thing and not pollute the world which we all share.

We begun last year with Bamboo Straws a perfect alternative to plastic straws which all to often pollute beautiful beaches and hurt marine life and other animals. We want to expand not just offer one product but more common items which are use by people daily and unfortunately also thrown away daily. So our new range of products will include Coconut Bowls made from real coconuts now we have another use for coconuts instead of just eating or drinking the coconut you can eat from the bowl itself! 

Bamboo Cutlery Which will include a knife, fork and spoon, in a beautiful carrying bag so when you go to a restaurant fast food place or anywhere instead of using plastic cutlery which is thrown away you can use you reusable bamboo cutlery. 

Bamboo Toothbrushes One of the worst polluters and also the plastic made of harmful chemicals should be kept away from your mouth! The Bamboo Toothbrushes are beautiful and strong and will decompose unlike plastic one. 

Of course our Bamboo Straws! They come in two sizes regular for your normal drinks  and XXL for the thicker types like milkshakes, smoothies and perfect for boba tea! The straws come in a carrying bag so it easy to always take them with you, also a cleaning straws is included we are one of the only to provide a plastic free cleaning straw also! It's made from coconut fibres and metal no plastic at all!

Risks and challenges

A issue we have is packaging we do not want to taint our plastic free image with tons of plastic packaging which will end up in our oceans and landfill. We want to tackle this issue in a reasonable way without having to lower the quality of packaging and keep your products safe.

We will never wrap our products in cellophane or other plastics, we will try always to find the best suitable packing like cardboard over plastic and if we need to use bubble wrap we have found suppliers who provide environmentally friendly bubble wrap.

Another risk is finding sustainable sources. 1 year since we have started we have had time to find sustainable small time farmers across Indonesian and south east Asia who can provide us with these products without harming the environment. We do not want to mass produce cheap items in a factory as this would go against our values.
