One hot summer day, when we were out rowing a boat, my three-year-old daughter dropped her plastic sunglasses into the lake. She loved her sunglasses, and she was heartbroken to lose them. It was shocking to consider just how long those sunglasses will take to break down and biodegrade: more than 450 years. We decided to do some research, and we soon discovered the benefits of bamboo. Bamboo is an amazing plant, equally renewable, sustainable, and versatile. Despite its biodegradability and sustainability, it is remarkably strong. And one more thing: it floats! And thus we created BamboStyle. It’s our hope that the inspiration we found that day on the lake will shine through in the beautiful products we offer.
