MINNEAPOLIS , Sept. 10, 2021 (Local News) -Zoë Levin founder and CEO of Bim Bam Boo, a Minneapolis-based startup that makes bamboo toilet paper, is determined to "wipe away" staggering statistics around deforestation related to paper production.

Everyday 27,000 trees are flushed by way of paper toilet paper. Meanwhile, a 24-roll box of Bim Bam Boo toilet paper saves 32 pounds of trees through the use of rapidly renewable bamboo. (Bamboo matures much faster than trees used for conventional paper products.)

Bim Bam Boo is now expanding its product line beyond toilet paper into 500 Whole Foods Market stores nationwide. The company's environmentally-conscious personal products now include paper towels and regionally available facial tissue, which are all made without inks and fragrances, and whitened without chlorinated bleach.
