Boomi's First Event
Boomi hosted its first ever event in Shanghai. We screened "Bag It," an award-winning documentary about how plastic is inevitably controlling our lives. This will hopefully be the first of a series of screenings events we would like to do every month.
March Market Madness
March was the first time Boomi started to attend markets. During this month, we attended the Jiashan Market and Eco & More's Rooftop Market @ WeWork. Check out a recap video of the event on YouTube.
First Workshop and Hackathon
Boomi conducted its very first social entrepreneurship workshop at UWC-Changshu China with a group of grade 11 students. Our workshop focused a lot on simple and feasible solutions students could initiate in their local communities. Please contact us if you would like us to conduct workshops at your schools.
Launch of Wild Ginger and Lavandula
After releasing our first Boomi Box in December, Boomi expanded its Shampoo Bars line to two other scents, Wild Ginger and Lavandula.
Launch of Boomi Box 1.0 "Back to Basics"
The Boomi Box 1.0 "Back to Basics" was the first box we launched. Starter kits are at the core of our business as we believe these are the easiest way to start your journey towards a zero-waste lifestyle.

Boomi's Official Website Launch
This was the day Boomi official launched its website with our first product, the Moso Bamboo Toothbrush. Since then, we have grown so much from all the support we have received from everyone in Shanghai.
What is Boomi?
Boomi is a Shanghai-based startup that provides knowledge-based services and starter-kits filled with eco-friendly products.
Our mission is to empower people to find a balance between city living and sustainability. We do so by challenging consumers to rethink about their daily practices in the wake of urbanization.

I love my boomi toothbrush and shampoo! The toothbrush is comfortable to hold + really gentle on my gums. The shampoo is a total winner after trying multiple brands for so long, my hair is stronger and voluminous and I only wash every 3-4 days

Boomi is a company with a sustainable mission. They provide high quality products, and try to make a difference one person at a time. I highly recommend their toothbrush for anyone who loves a soft bristle brush and wants to help the environment.
Student @ Bocconi University
I hadn't looked into sustainable products before, always simply assuming that they would be less effective. However, a close friend recommended Boomi to me, and I tried the shampoo bar. Although skeptical at first considering my 'hagrid hair' and the exemption from conditioning, I was so pleasantly surprised! Sustainability and effectiveness go hand in hand with Boomi, so why not save the planet and look good whilst doing so!
Super love the shampoo bar. At first I was bit skeptical about shampoo bar, but I love it now. It's super easy to use, gentle to my hair and smells so nice too!
Jiao Tong University Student
I've followed Boomi's development since it first launched. It is amazing what Emmanuel and Miguel have done, and their products really do make living sustainably easy. All I know is that I buy a box from Boomi, and a part of my life is more eco-friendly. 100% would recommend.

My boomi shampoo saved me in China! Not only is it eco-friendly and well-priced, but it’s also one of the rare shampoos sold in China that’s sulfate free! A sulfate free shampoo makes all hair treatments last longer and your hair feel rich and healthy. Their different perfumes are a huge plus too, Boomi shampoo is the bomb 💣

What I like about Boomi is their focus on education. They are creating a whole experience that teaches how to be sustainable in the city. I love their film screenings and seeing them at markets, promoting a zero-waste lifestyle.

Marie will graduate from King’s College London in 2020. Born in La Réunion, a tiny island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, she was shocked by the extensive use of plastic when moving to bigger cities.

A true believer that ‘small changes make big impacts’, joining Boomi and its inspiring team is part of her mission for a more sustainable world.

That was when she decided to join Boomi to fight for a better world and start her journey towards a zero-waste lifestyle.
Nicole graduated from the University of Roehampton, London in 2017. During her masters she realised how important it was for children to be educated on sustainability. Boomi has inspired and encouraged Nicole to help with workshops for children. Together, we will raise a new green generation.
