The bambeco brand and Susan Aplin cannot be separated. Born of a culmination of a successful career at premium retail brands and a lifelong love for the outdoors, bambeco embodies Susan’s passion for the planet and for making the world better for all who inhabit it.
Susan’s career spans 25 years and has included some of the best known and respected premium retail brands in the industry, such as Williams Sonoma, Inc., The Gap, The Sports Authority, and Staples. Her experience encompasses key executive roles in Merchandising, E-Commerce and Catalog, Supply Chain, Operations, and Mergers and Acquisitions.
Affirming her vision and leadership, Susan (and bambeco) have received numerous accolades, including being named as top CEO in 2012 by SmartCEO Brava Awards, bambeco named to Internet Retailer's HOT 100, and nominated for top Luxury Sustainability Brand. In 2012, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley recognized Susan and bambeco in his State of the State for her great work in Maryland. Susan and bambeco continue to be recognized for measurable contributions to sustainability, innovation, leadership, and philanthropy.
At the helm of bambeco, Susan’s multi-faceted contribution is evidenced in a fluid combination of keen business acumen and creativity. Leading with the mantra of, “changing the world, one room at a time,” Susan shapes all facets of bambeco’s multi-dimensional personality including sustainability principles and messages, driving innovation and sales, customer and e-commerce experience, product development, and investor relations.
Susan attributes her unwavering success and bambeco’s profound acceptance in the marketplace to two distinct “Ah Ha” moments:
In 2002, during a business flight with Williams-Sonoma Founder Chuck Williams, Williams shared, “If you love what you do, the world will fall in love with you.”
In 2008, Susan was standing on a dramatically receding glacier. (see Our Story). What she saw transformed her life and caused the idea to create bambeco.
When she’s not in her eco-chic office Susan can be found enjoying the Chesapeake Bay, cycling, running, hiking or spending time with friends and family and her beloved Boston Terrier, Isla.
“For me, sustainability and environmental stewardship are deeply important. I believe we have a profound responsibility to protect, preserve, and leave the world a better place for generations to come. Changing the world…One Room at a Time is more than producing truly sustainable and stylish products; it is about the cycle of life…a personal and professional commitment centered around a respect for the earth and its resources and the people who inhabit it.”
With a career spanning more than 30 years in large to early stage companies, Carolyn is best known for leveraging business and new technologies to advance social mission.
In partnership with organizations such as NASA, Harvard, Discovery Networks, Comcast, and the US Department of Education, she has led groundbreaking initiatives that changed the way students learn via improved technology and content offerings. She brings that same spirit to driving innovations that allow bambeco to change the way consumers shop for, understand, and purchase environmentally responsible products.
Carolyn’s love for education is matched by her passion for the environment. Pushing this juxtaposition forward is Carolyn’s focus, as bambeco educates and empowers customers to evolve sustainability from a principle into a practical and vibrant way of living through products with purpose.
Carolyn spends as much time as possible outdoors, and loves to hike, kayak, run and bike. She is a marathoner and triathlete, and her newest joy is racing log canoes on the Chesapeake Bay, which is a perfect marriage of speed and water. She loves to work with kids, especially around reading and the outdoors.

One of Deborah’s greatest joys is spending time outdoors… on the water, in the vineyards, or on the mountaintop and she rarely misses swimming laps each morning before meeting the demands of the day.
“I am inspired by those around me who are changing the world on a daily basis,” shares Deborah. “We can all make a measurable difference in how we choose to edify the world and live on this planet we inhabit.”

1. CHOOSE A FILL POWER
Fill power refers to the amount of space an ounce of down will take up. The higher the fill power, the larger the down cluster. Meaning, less down is required to fill the same amount of space. Comforters with higher fill powers are fluffier, more breathable, provide better insulation and last longer
600 Fill Power White Goose Down
Envelop yourself in the luxury of premium down. Made with the most resilient and highest quality 600 fill White Goose Down for a soft, luxurious and cozy sleep.

800 Fill Power Siberian Goose Down

Lightweight warmth – ideal for warmer sleepers, warm climates and rooms above 70oF.

Each Vintage Kantha is a handcrafted masterpiece made from recycled vintage cotton saris. Hand-sewn and embroidered by artisans in India, each provides a livelihood for women in poor communities and gives their children the opportunity to live better, more productive lives.
Kantha is the ancient Indian art of embroidery, and the actual “kantha” is a simple running or pick stitch. The background of the cloth is embroidered with thousands of small and delicate kantha stitches to create a beautiful reversible one of a kind. While making these meticulously crafted Kanthas, the cloth is given layers that are kept together by the stitches. Due to the handcrafted nature of these pieces, there may be small patches and quilts may not align perfectly when folded. These are traits inherent in hand-made pieces and are the mark of human hands and artisan expression.
We believe it is our shared responsibility to help defend against the impacts of climate change. That’s why we’ve pledged our commitment to achieve a net zero carbon footprint by 2020.
Through innovation in product design, building better efficiencies in our supply chain and Carbonfree® shipping, we’ve been able to decrease our carbon footprint across all aspects of the business. Now we’re on a mission to become the first carbon neutral home goods company ever.
We remain committed to our 3 core causes: Fair Wages & Safe Workplaces, Clean Water & Water Conservation and Forest Preservation & Restoration. And we will continue to plant a tree with every purchase. But now, by 2020, we’ll have neutralized our carbon footprint on the planet.
Together, we can change the world, one room at a time.

According to Oxford University research, planting and growing trees is the best way to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reverse global warming.
Bambeco is proud to partner with American Forests, the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the country, for a joint commitment to restore and protect forests and minimize climate change.
With every Bambeco purchase, American Forests will plant a tree. That means every earth friendly purchase adds another tree to our landscape and another step towards counteracting climate change.
Since we launched our "Every Purchase Plants a Tree" initiative, we've planted over 30,000 trees—enough trees to supply oxygen for 40,000 people, save and clean 2.4 billion gallons of water and absorb 480 tons of carbon dioxide per year!
Together, we'll grow forests.
