Our Products FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions about Our Products
Where do you produce your products?

Most of our products are handmade in Bali, Indonesia. Some products nonetheless aren’t available in Indonesia (although we always try to source from here) and therefore we have to source them from somewhere else, in any case, we will always be transparent on where our products are made, so you can really purchase our products without any hidden surprises.

Who makes your products?

We like to be very transparent of our production processes so we really recommend you visit the “How we make our products” section under the About Us menu button in our main menu. There you will be able to learn more about the people behind each one of our products, we’re sure you’ll love them as much as we do!

Why and how are your products sustainable?

Indonesia is one of the worst plastic pollutants in the world. More than seeing it through Facebook videos and news articles, we see plastic lurking around with our own eyes every time we go to the beach, mountains, rivers, etc. Bali Boo™ was created as a way of offering a solution to all that plastic madness and we put forth products that we stand by so you can also enjoy a plastic-free life.

All our materials come from sustainable sources. None of them have been processed, fertilized or otherwise chemically altered. You can learn about each of the products we make on their respective product pages, under the “How are they made” tab.

Apart from our product-centered efforts, we always pay above-market prices to all our partners and we employ mostly women, as we believe that when wealth is distributed to women in the local community, the wealth really permeates into the whole society. All our products are fairly made and with the utmost respect to the working conditions of the people that make them.

Our packaging is also sustainable; we use mostly natural materials or recycled products to package our products. All of the materials we use are perfectly recyclable or even compostable and biodegradable. So you can be sure that not only the product on itself is sustainable inside and outside, but the packaging it comes in is sustainable too.

How do I know you're telling the truth?

Our whole business is based on the basis of transparency, trust and respect. Not only towards our planet but also towards the people that make Bali Boo™ possible, and towards you as a customer who has given us your trust.

If you’re still not sure about anything that we say, you are more than welcome to contact us asking any questions you might have, we will happily answer any question you might have.

What certifications do you hold?

Currently all our products are certified Cruelty Free and Vegan by PeTA.

Apart from that, some products may have different certifications. Our Bamboo Straws are food-grade certified, our toothbrushes are FDA, CE certified, our Cotton swabs are FSC,CE and GOTS certified.

We are constantly looking to get more certifications, being in Indonesia, it’s not as easy to get them as we would wish,  but we are constantly striving to get as many as possible so you can also have the certainty that what we are saying is true.
