Creative Collabs: Brush with Bamboo
If you’re looking for an easy way to transition into a more eco-friendly lifestyle, then you are in the right place!
Brush with Bamboo was founded in California by the Kumar family. They consistently make efforts to live sustainably, including the development their own organic permaculture garden that produces 5,000 pounds of food annually. The idea for a bamboo toothbrush rose out of their desire to shift to a zero-waste lifestyle, and reduce the amount of waste ending up in our oceans and landfills.
Each year a shocking 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes will end up in landfills and oceans. What’s worse is that plastic also has damaging effects on human health, including harmful toxins that can transfer into the bloodstream. Brush with Bamboo is leading the fight against that problem by taking an eco-friendly approach to manufacturing toothbrushes using plant-based components that create sustainable, non-toxic products that will decompose naturally!
The toothbrush is made with a biodegradable handle, plant based bristles, and compostable packaging. It lasts just as long as the average plastic brush.
Brush with Bamboo is a sponsor of 5 Gyres, a group working to raise awareness about plastic pollution, as well as a USDA Certified Biobased Product by United States Government’s Biopreferred Program. They are truly on a mission to reduce their footprint by using plant-based alternatives!
In addition to toothbrushes, they also sell bamboo toothbrush holders and travel cases. If you’re ready for some smarter brushin’, check out all of the good stuff here!
