Bambu is a Portland-based company that produces a range of beautifully designed, sustainable home products. And don’t be fooled by the name – although some of their items are, in fact, made from bamboo, it’s their line of cork homegoods that really caught our eye.
If you’re a regular ModernEnviro reader, you already know that cork is a pretty amazing material. And harvesting cork bark actually helps promote the growth of cork oak trees, making it incredibly sustainable as well. Cork flooring and cork insulation take advantage of its natural resiliency and insulating properties, but it’s also great for smaller items in the home. A few of our favorites:
