How We Started


This is the story behind how Bamboo Buds came about, it started when I had to leave university in 2015 due to finding out I had cancer and had to have an operation before undergo sessions of chemotherapy. Whilst I was going through chemotherapy, I met a lot of people who are no longer with us today. During this point I realised many things. One of them was that I had to do something that would allow me to be able to contribute to other people’s wellbeing. I also realised how much I had. I had a lot of support from my family and friends, the support to make my dream a reality.

I began with starting a clothing business, however this failed for different reasons. I did not let this bring me down and decided that I had to find an alternative. Upon conversation with a family member, I discovered bamboo products. I was intrigued by the idea that there were bamboo alternatives to products we all use on a daily basis which not only made a positive contribution to the world but it also provided employment opportunities to people in deprived countries. 

For our customers to support Bamboo Buds, it was important for you to understand the background behind how Bamboo Buds began. 

Our aim is to make Bamboo Buds a household name by providing bamboo alternatives to everyday household products at a reasonable price and a convenient location.

Happy Shopping!!
