It’s a Bumble World in a Green Environment.

We want our customers to feel good about the products they carry and also to know that we create products that are helping our environment in hopes of creating a brighter tomorrow for our children’s children.

 

 

To begin, all our products are created using all natural fabrics. We use our own specially designed weaving process to allow our products to be water/stain resistant without the use of any harsh chemicals or synthetic preservatives.

The Bumble Collection does what it can to not only create environmentally responsible products, but we also strive to keep a "green" office.

Here are a few ways that you too can begin to go "green" in your home or office. Remember: Just a little can go a long way.

 

-Make it a policy to buy Energy Star-rated light bulbs and fixtures, which use at least two-thirds less energy than regular lighting.

-Computers in the business sector unnecessarily waste $1 billion worth of electricity a year. Make it a habit to turn off your computer and the power strip it’s plugged into when you leave for the day.

-The average U.S. office worker goes through 10,000 sheets of copy paper a year. Make it a habit to print on both sides or use the back side of old documents for faxes, scrap paper, or drafts.

-Make it a habit to bring your own mug and dishware for those meals you eat at the office.

-Make it a policy to invest in videoconferencing and other technological solutions that can reduce the amount of employee travel.

-Make it a habit to use nontoxic cleaning products. Brighten up your cubicle with plants, which absorb indoor pollution.
