GIVEAWAY: Ever Bamboo

bamboo charcoal

Who knew bamboo could be used for so many different things? You see bamboo flooring, towels, clothes and diapers, and the list goes on. Ever Bamboo is  a Canadian company (woot woot!) that uses the rapidly growing moso bamboo to create it’s line of bamboo charcoal products from deodorizers to skin care!

Due to the growth characteristics of moso bamboo, millions of tiny holes are created as the plant densifies as it matures, a process taking approximately five years. It is these tiny holes that ultimately give the resulting bamboo charcoal its revolutionary abilities as both a deodorizer and dehumidifier. These benefits have been enjoyed for more than five centuries in Asia.

Bamboo forests are widely planted throughout Asia, and due to the resurgence in the recognition of its benefits, many more acres are planted every day. And as bamboo takes only five years from seedling to mature plant, it will be readily available for all future generations.

With proper care, your bamboo charcoal product can last an entire year or more. After this, and because it is a 100% natural product, it can be recycled into the ecosystem.

I was sent the Room Deodorizer, the Mini Deodorizer and the HEI Face and Body Soap. I don’t have many musty or smelly areas in my home but with 4 kids in a van, there are occasionally a few nasty odors that linger due to dropped pieces of food and what not. So I stuck the room bamboo charcoal deodorizer in my van. And I settled on putting a mini under my kitchen sink, where we keep the recycling, and a mini in my two piece bath, which tends to get a bit musty on occasion.

The deodorizers:

These worked wonders! After only a night in my van when I opened the door I was not greeted with……clean fresh air! No stale smell, no rotting apple smell, just odor free clean smell. Much better then any leaf shaped car deodorizer I have used before, that’s for sure. And it was the same under my kitchen sink and in my bathroom. It will be interesting to see how well it does when the weather gets warmer again, and my toilet starts to sweat! Did I mention they were also dehumidifiers?

The soap:

This was a unique experience indeed. Never have I had a bar of soap lather up so much. It was almost like shaving cream. I was a bit thrown off initially when you see black streaks heading toward the drain but I suppose that’s to be expected when your washing with a bamboo charcoal bar of soap!  The soap has left me feeling quite clean and residue free. With other soaps I always feel like there is something left behind but the HEI face and body soap literally left me squeaky clean. I will definitely be looking into where I can get more of this soap.
