Bambeco was launched on Earth Day 2009. For Bambeco co-founder and CEO Susan Aplin, the ‘Ah Ha’ moment came while standing on a dramatically receding glacier in the wilds of Alaska. The evident shift in climate inspired a shift of the heart.
Acting on what she had seen, Susan determined to change the way she lived. She reduced her energy use and adjusted commuting patterns. Then she turned her attention to her home and was inspired by the question—what if there was one resource for home goods where every product offered impacted the world in a positive way?
Co-founded by Susan Aplin and Carolyn Wapnick, today Bambeco is the premier brand for sustainable home goods, offering an assortment of products that are all original and authentic in design and character, reclaimed, recycled, repurposed, renewable, natural or organic, and made with the highest respect for the planet and its people.
We provide a platform through which “sustainability” is transformed from a movement into a household word. Our vision is to educate and inspire all with whom we connect to become personally involved and passionately committed to changing the world through products with purpose.
We are educators, motivational speakers, relationship-builders, possibility-thinkers. We are forward thinking, forward facing, forward moving innovators and world changers, constantly working to make Earth a better, healthier place. We embrace a culture of service: to customers, to each other and to the planet, and we live our mission every day.
We design, create and provide responsible products that inspire sustainable design and enhance the way people connect with our planet.
Every product we offer meets strict guidelines for everything from materials to production processes, labor and transport. Our goal is a positive impact on your life with a minimal impact on the planet.
Everything reclaimed, repurposed, renewable, recycled, regenerated, natural or organic.
