About us

Hi. My name is Alec and that is my son Coll. I wanted to tell you about us and the light bulb moments that led to the creation of Reusaboo. The first was when I ‘woke up to waste’ after finding out about the disposable coffee cup problem back in 2018. I found out that we throw away 7 million takeaway coffee cups every day in the UK and that only 0.25% of them get recycled. Just 1 in 400! I was shocked and started to find out about how waste is such a big environmental problem. Then I discovered the zero waste movement and the goal to completely eliminate waste as much as possible through our lifestyle and the products we use.

Soon after this I learned about bamboo and how it is such a great renewable and sustainable raw material that could be used to make a wide range of reusable, natural products. I know how fast bamboo grows as we have some in our garden and I was really taken with the potential it offered as a much more environmentally friendly material and as a perfect alternative to plastic which pollutes our oceans and kills wildlife.

From those light bulb moments the idea for Reusaboo was born. I had a vision to create a company which could make a difference by promoting a zero waste lifestyle. One that helped to address our disposable culture through our reusable, natural products and increase awareness through our community. With your support I hope we can achieve that vision. 

The business is entirely family owned and operated. We handle all the customer queries ourselves and also pack and ship the orders in plastic free, recyclable packaging as well. When you buy from us you are not only helping to be a bit more sustainable but also supporting a small business as well. So we really do appreciate every single order! Thanks for your support.

Spread the word through OUR COMMUNITY

From the outset I wanted Reusaboo to be more than a brand. I wanted it to be a community of like minded individuals. I’m hugely grateful to everyone that helps to spread our message and we’re always trying to give back to you with sustainable living and zero waste tips, first access to new products, exclusive discounts and more.
