An Unprescendented Upcycling Idea!

It all started with a small company called Bum Boosa Bamboo Products. Several years ago Sonja Sheasley began a quest to find the most environmentally responsible and non-toxic baby wipes. Along the way, she fell in love with bamboo and felt that its contribution in alleviating the burden that trees bear could be enormous. Already having some knowledge in herbalism, essential oils and natural product development, she researched bamboo non woven fiber for two years before launching Bum Boosa Bamboo Products with the help of friends and family in 2009,

So fast forward a few years, Bum Boosa Bamboo Baby Wipes are here and well-loved in the natural products market (along with some of her other new products, such as bamboo bathroom tissue and bamboo diaper liners)... but being eco-minded, Sonja needed to make sure that the baby wipes packaging, which is difficult to recycle due its being a mixed plastic, had an opportunity to be repurposed. That's where Upcyclers and Designers June and Cruz come in.


With a knack for working with alternative materials, talented fashion designer and founder of Enamour, June Monteiro has made it her mission to head up the Bum Boosa Bamboo Products Upcycling Program. This program encourages Bum Boosa Bamboo Baby Wipes customers to return their empty baby wipes packaging to the company in return for rebate and gift certificates. The recovered material is then repurposed into new hand-crafted items after they have been sterilized. The packages are upcycled into diaper totes or convenient on-the-go diaper changing pads, jewelry, infant rosette head bands, and more!


Michael Cruz wouldn’t refer to himself as a born creative but someone who was inspired. While watching an interview with image (5)“Happy” song writer Pharrell Williams, who spoke of recreating costume jewelry and pursuing a passion, Cruz was inspired to try his hand at jewelry making. He found a craft in costume jewelry making that pushed his creativity and added to his personal style.

Later his fiancé, June Monteiro, became the Bum Boosa Upcycle Coordinator and began to create custom Bum Boosa beads (made with returned baby wipe packaging). The two combined their talents to create the Mommy and Me bracelet and necklace sets featured on the Bum Boosa Etsy shop.

Together June and Cruz' talent is unstoppable! Bum Boosa is proud to offer their upycled creations here, while at the same time, diverting baby wipes packaging from landfills! We hope you love our mission as much as we do.
