OUR STORY INITIALLY
On a vacation trip through the Yucatan and the Riviera Maya in Mexico, we had the opportunity to visit Cozumel. After an exciting trip on the ferry boat across the sparkling blue water to the island, we encountered their colorful retail trade area. If you’ve ever been in the Cozumel shopping district and experienced their “take no prisoners” way of getting you into their stores, you know it can be a daunting experience. But I will be forever grateful to that pushy salesman, because feeling those towels and t-shirts he shoved at me, eventually changed my life.
The towels and t-shirts were made from bamboo fabric. I didn’t even know such a thing existed and was astounded by their softness. As you probably figured out, the sales tactics worked because I went inside to find out more about this incredibly soft bamboo fabric. The trip continued, as they often do, and there were many more ruins and fabulous sights. However, I never forgot that amazingly soft bamboo fabric .
When I got back home, I needed to find out more about these amazing bamboo fabrics and where I could get them. As it happens, they weren’t terribly easy to find, so I took to the internet. That exploration really opened my eyes to how many fabulous items were made from bamboo. Not only my beloved towels, but also sheets, rugs, really gorgeous furniture, decorative items and more, all made from bamboo! That’s it, I was hooked.
I started looking into the specifics of bamboo products and found out that they are not only beautiful and practical, but also eco-friendly. Bamboo is one of the most sustainable and versatile building and manufacturing products on the planet. With today’s awareness of environmental impacts, I loved that I could always feel good about a bamboo product purchase. It soon became clear to me that I had to bring these amazing products to people everywhere at prices everyone could afford. So I scoured the internet some more, chose some really great manufacturers that employed environmentally friendly practices and started Bonnee Bamboo.
THERE IS HOPE IF PEOPLE BEGIN TO AWAKEN THAT SPIRITUAL PART OF THEMSELVES, THAT HEARTFELT KNOWLEDGE THAT WE ARE CARETAKERS OF THIS PLANET.

OUR STORY REFOCUSED
As the world changes, our way of being in world must change too. Technology has grown so rapidly that we lost our connection to the natural world. Connecting to nature is part of the positive shift that we can make to support ourselves in this time of change and crisis. As a result we have added a simple, essential product (bath tissue) that has a great impact on the environment. In research we found that in one year each person alone uses three trees for bath tissue. Making a simple shift to purchasing bamboo bath tissue, which is more renewable than the average tissue, will have a huge impact on our environment.
As people nest in their homes during the crisis, we added a couple products to uplift our spirits during this time. To invoke therapy through the sense of smell, we offer a bamboo nebulizing diffuser for use in our homes or offices. Plus to enhance sound healing we offer the Zaphir wind chimes, which sing melodies of the Golden Ratio, which is part of the Fibonacci scale and repeatedly appears in nature.
THE EARTH IS NOT JUST OUR ENVIRONMENT. WE ARE THE EARTH AND THE EARTH IS US. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ONE WITH THE EARTH.
