zero waste

Garbage is everywhere. We've become so used to the simplicity of single-use products that we've evolved into a throwaway society. It is time to change this, because there are alternatives.


The plastic problem

A product with such a long lifespan, mass-produced for disposable products, causes problems.

Of all the plastic ever produced, 12% was destroyed by incineration and only 9% was recycled . This means that most plastic (79%) either ends up in a landfill or in nature, where it threatens all life forms on earth.

Fortunately, there are various projects around the world trying to clean up our mess. At Bambuna, we eliminate the problem at the source and offer plastic-free premium bamboo products that don't even contribute to pollution.


What is zero waste?

Since the invention of mass-produced plastic in the 1950s, a throwaway society has evolved, in which single-use products serve the interests of large corporations.

In this throwaway society, it is considered "normal" for a product to be used for just 10 minutes and then remain on earth for hundreds of years afterwards.

60 years later garbage is everywhere. Animals are choking on plastic waste and countries don't know how to get rid of all the waste. There are so many different types of plastic that recycling programs are ineffective, treating only 9% of waste.

Zero-waste is a lifestyle that aims to reduce the amount of waste produced on earth. It is the simplest solution to pollution as it tackles the problem at the source.

Zero-waste means rethinking our consumption behavior and giving up products that stay on earth for hundreds of years after being used for just 10 minutes.

Go with us on the journey. Our goal is progress, not perfection.

The zero-waste movement sees beauty in the simple. It's about doing more with less and focusing on what's important. The movement is made up of people all taking their small steps towards sustainability. Together we can move step by step towards a world with less waste.
