Hello Ever Bamboo’ers! It’s that wonderful time of year again, where gratitude and thankfulness make their presence known. The holiday season is often a time to pause. To gather. To reflect. And to celebrate our families, friends, and the often overlooked daily blessings that fill our lives. Our collective rough edges seem to soften and smooth, as a warm blanket of kindness and generosity seems to bring out the best in ourselves and others, and gratitude fills our hearts as the year approaches its final weeks.
This year, Ever Bamboo wanted to say a very special thank you to all of YOU. We value you so very much, and cannot express how grateful we are after nearly 20 years in business, to have you with us on this journey of cleaner living, and a more sustainable approach to life’s stinky stuff. Our Ever Bamboo customers truly believe in a better future for the planet, and make choices each and every day to support that - including buying our products.
Bamboo is one of the most rapidly growing plants on earth, sprouting as much as 3 feet or more in a single day! Because of this, the harvesting and regrowth cycle is conducive to the bamboo EVERYTHING craze that has swept the globe over the past decade!! And for our Ever Bamboo pouches in particular, the porous nature of bamboo charcoal is what allows for the absorption of humidity, and odors that are naturally pulled from the surrounding air wherever a pouch is placed.
After one to two months of continual use (depending on the level of odor and moisture) the pouch can be completely reactivated by placing it outside in direct sunlight for 2 hours or so on each side (if you haven't signed up for the monthly email reminders yet, sign up here). This reactivation can be repeated for up to a full year, making our products superstars in the sustainable world of reducing and reusing. But perhaps the cherry on the cleaner living cake is that after a full year of use, the activated charcoal granules in the pouch can then be recycled right back into the earth! By cutting the pouches open, and then sprinkling the charcoal granules into gardens or terrariums, they will go on to help regulate moisture in the soil. Hello healthy, thriving, flowers and plants!
Finding ways to contribute to a smaller carbon footprint by using a ‘one ingredient’ natural product - rather than opting for candles and heavily perfumed sprays that often list toxic chemicals in their ingredients - makes for a much healthier home for our families and pets.
Another important difference between these options and Ever Bamboo, is that these products only MASK odors. Ever Bamboo works to eliminate them. Don’t believe us? Test a pair of our shoe deodorizers out in a stinky pair of shoes for 24 hours. We are pretty sure you will be thrilled with the result.
All in all - we think that we have a whole lot to be grateful for. And it turns out that you seem to appreciate those things as well.
Whether you have been on this journey with us since the beginning - or are just discovering us now - here’s to YOU! We remain grateful to you - our loyal customers and friends - who continue to take the path to more sustainable living, and a healthier home for you, your family and your pets.
