The origin of Bambook

How it all started.

In 2014, Bambook started out as a student company by four ambitious students Brent, Marco, Richard and Ward. When yet another brainstorming session ended up in the paper bin, they thought to themselves: “what if we could reuse these pieces of paper straight away?” This idea took the form of a notebook with pages that can be easily erased.

This concept caught on and touched on a universal theme that many people related to: (paper) waste. Over the years, Bambook has evolved into one of the larger suppliers of sustainable office supplies.

But enough about us. We are not the most important in this story... That's you.

Our goal?

Going for the million. Before 2025
Bambook planting site

For each product sold, we plant a tree in Madagascar in collaboration with Eden Projects. Over the years more than 90% of the forests and rainforests have been cut down and this poses a direct threat to the overall biodiversity. With our reforestation project, we contribute to the restoration of Madagascar’s ecosystem and create employment opportunities for the local communities.

The real heroes

Meet the Bambookers at our sheltered workshop

Your Bambook is in very capable hands with this team of dedicated Bambookers. They are the ones putting together the pages you selected, spiraling them together and packing your package by hand before your Bambook arrives at your doorstep. We feel grateful that the workshop is close to our office so we get to visit regularly and see all the love and care that they put in their work.

We are proud to have them be part of the ever-growing Bambook team!
