Bambooee is a strong, absorbent, and reusable alternative to paper towels. Made from bamboo, Bambooee sheets have the appearance of regular paper towels, but they’re reusable and even machine-washable.
Each roll of Bambooee sheets comes with 20 sheets, which replaces up to 60 paper towel rolls. These reusable cloths don’t just save you money, they reduce waste. Every roll of Bambooee is made from sustainably-sourced organic bamboo.
Using Bambooee doesn’t contribute to the 3000 tons of paper towel waste created every day, and it will save you money because you won’t be buying paper towels constantly.
