1. Tell us about your eco-inspired company:
Peek A Bamboo is a creative clothing brand featuring the luxurious natural resource of bamboo.

We are proud to offer a brand that helps reduce the impact on the environment and lets people feel good about what their baby is wearing.
2. How do you choose to go green in your own life?
I make a very conscious effort to recycle, conserve water and buy organic products.
3. Guilty green pleasure?
In the process of developing the Peek A Bamboo brand, I have ordered many samples of bamboo clothing. My guilty pleasure is ordering samples of shirts in my size so I can wear them. Bamboo clothing is so soft, I just can’t resist.
4. Can you offer any encouraging words for those with a small sustainable business?
Be passionate about what you do. Most people in the sustainable industry believe in what they are doing. If that energy carries over into your business practices, then clients and customers will want to support your business.
