Bobble Water Bottles

for the family...

These are the perfect alternative to single-use plastic water bottles. The Bobble reusable water bottle contains a carbon filter that acts as a magnet to chemicals and impurities, leaving your drinking water fresh and clean. Plus, each filter equates to 300 singleuse bottles, which of course makes Mother Earth smile. BPA, phthalate and PVC free, Bobble is guilt-free as well!

Live Good Luxurious Organic Sateen Sheets Bamboo loves Live Good! With the trend toward sustainable, environmentally-friendly products, more and more organic cotton goods have cropped up. And that’s a wonderful thing! But not all are of the standard of Live Good. These sheets are high quality, luxurious, comfortable and made right here in the U.S.

Oxylent Oxygenating Multivitamin Drink Oxylent not only tastes great but it oxygenates, hydrates, circulates and rejuvenates! These drink packets are perfect when you are on-the-go and are sweetened with stevia (original Oxylent only has less than 2 grams of organic cane sugar). Prenatal and children’s formulas, too!

Auromére Ayurvedic Products Auromére’s Rejuvenating Mud Bath is wonderfully potent! Its skin-nourishing properties are sensed immediately after use as its four types of clay work to extract the toxins that can leave the skin feeling clogged. The result is fresh, smooth skin that can breathe again! For skin that needs extra attention, Auromére’s Ayurvedic Neem Balm helps soothe the driest areas of the skin. Great for cracked heels and elbows!

Cold Eeze Oral Throat Spray Cold Eeze is a homeopathic cold remedy that is proven to shorten the duration of colds. We at Bamboo love this product! With the addition of the great-tasting, sugar-free oral throat spray, Cold Eeze has made it even easier to get relief.

Nordic Naturals Not all fish oil supplements are created equal! Bamboo loves Nordic Naturals because of their commitment to meeting or exceeding pharmaceutical standards for quality, ensuring that each product is rigorously tested for freshness, heavy metals and chemicals. Nordic Naturals has a complete line of omegas and EPA/DHA oils to choose from to help support heart health and anti-inflammatory response… and none leave that fishy aftertaste. We also love them because our kids love the Omega-3 Gummies!

Mandala Serving Board by Tanja Sova Biologist and woodworker Tanja Sova’s designs are so unique and lovingly made that we just had to share! Handmade from salvaged cherry firewood and cured with food-safe conditioner, Tanja’s mandala serving board is a work of art – a beautiful complement to any kitchen ware. The mandala design is manually wood-burned into the piece; no two are exactly alike. Visit Tanja’s Etsy shop for more original, natural works of art!

MamAmor Dolls We are in love with these gorgeous dolls! MamAmor has handcrafted one-of-a-kind dolls that bring focus to a muchneeded component in the toy industry: the normal, natural processes of birthing and breastfeeding. Each heirloomquality doll is completely unique and is a great educational tool. The team of mothers behind MamAmor have created these dolls with soul and intention: a breastfeeding mama with merino hair who nestles her baby close as he/she suckles; a birthing mama who delivers her baby naturally (even via VBAC!); a just-birthed baby with his/her cord, placenta and receiving blanket; a baby-wearing papa and toddler-wearing mama team. Not only will MamAmor dolls be cherished by your child for years to come, but they are an ideal resource for birth professionals and play therapy as well. We are so impressed and inspired by MamAmor and their wonderful craftwork. You and your child will love celebrating breastfeeding, babywearing and birthing with MamAmor dolls!
