WooBamboo is so much more than JUST an oral care company. Sure, we make things like gorgeous bamboo toothbrushes, incredible biodegradable floss, and ‘hella tasty natural toothpastes – But we also aim to inspire!  We hope that with each purchase and subsequent use of our eco oral care products that we’re inspiring someone at the beginning/end of their day to lead a more eco-friendly and smile-filled life. THAT’S what makes us so cool…

It doesn’t hurt to have brag-worthy stats like: Replacing over 5.5 BILLION plastic toothbrushes with WooBamboo biodegradable ones. Being offered in almost 60 countries, and in over 19,000 stores worldwide. Or having some pretty sweet sustainability certifications (ie: 100% FSC), awards and distinguishes (ie: WooBamboo was selected as Forbes Travel Guide’s Official Eco-Oral Care Brand of 2020), and a committed team of dedicated individuals.

TOOTHBRUSHES

The bamboo used in your toothbrush is safely and conscientiously harvested from the bamboo-rich mountain regions of China, carefully monitored and quality-checked, to make sure what you put in your mouth is of the highest quality!


FLOSS
We source our stuff from the very best; and arguably the most stylish… Our silk biodegradable floss, as well as it’s eco-friendly packaging, is from our friends in Milan, Italy.


TOOTHPASTE
Our delicious and natural toothpaste is made in a state-of-the-art facility in Mexico, using only the highest quality ingredients!

No. The bristles are made from dental-grade nylon. At WooBamboo we’ve done an incredible amount of research and testing, and have found that claimed “biodegradable bristles” either ARE NOT, or if they are, they actually start to decompose in your mouth with just a week or two of use. Another alternative would be to use boar hair. Yuck! Instead, we decided to get the BEST POSSIBLE BRISTLE for your mouth, and the BEST POSSIBLE HANDLE for the Earth.

Great question. Since your WooBamboo toothbrush is not made of plastic, like other brushes, there are a few simple things to keep in mind…

  • Any long-term wetness will definitely shorten the life of your brush, so please don’t let your toothbrush sit in water or in the shower. When you’re done using it, shake or pat it dry and place it upright in a holder or a cup (good advice for ANY toothbrush, actually!). A sweet thing we do is – we put some Himalayan Sea Salt in the bottom of our toothbrush holder which further helps soak up any remaining moisture.
  • Also, due to the nature of the brush, literally, you MAY witness the occasional bristle liberating itself from the handle. That’s because we don’t use glue. Only pressure secures the bristles into the brush. So, if it happens, which is rare, don’t panic. But DO replace the brush right away as more bristles will start to come out as well.
  • Lastly, like with ANY toothbrush: BRUSH LIGHTLY! There’s no reason to punish your gums OR your toothbrush by thinking harder is better. It’s not! Be gentle. Your gums, teeth, and toothbrush will thank you!

When we started in 2013, our mission was clear. We wanted to convert people who normally purchase plastic toothbrushes to our much more eco option: bamboo. To do that, however, we needed to be available where plastic brushes were bought – pharmacies and grocery stores. At that time, the purchasers in charge of putting products in stores wanted nothing to do with a paper box.

The only way to get on the shelf was to look “normal”, so we went with a biodegradable backing card, soy-based ink, and a PET blister. PET is the most recycle-friendly plastic available. We knew the packaging wasn’t the MOST eco-friendly, but it WAS the most eco-friendly option that got us into stores, where we could make the MOST impact. The brushes themselves are still 95% less plastic than a typical brush, and because of our packaging compromise that got us into these stores, we have replaced over 5.5 million (as of December 2019) plastic brushes.

However, now it’s 2020, and those in charge of putting products in stores are FINALLY waking up to the idea of more eco-friendly packaging. That’s amazing news, and we’re super stoked about it. We have a whole new line of redesigned packaging coming by end of Summer 2020 including biodegradable boxes, post-consumer recycled bags, and oxo-biodegradable polymer.

We have just launched our soft bristle toothbrush in our new zero waste packaging. It has not been picked up by stores as of yet but is currently available for sale in the continental USA online on our shop site and will be launching on Amazon soon as well!

So… How can YOU help? Next time you’re shopping, tell the store manager that you’d like to have our new zero waste packaging as an option for purchase! A lot of them don’t know it’s available unless they are looking for it.

No, no, no! It’s okay. We’re super “panda-friendly”! Panda’s don’t eat Moso bamboo – and that’s what we use for our bamboo toothbrushes. They’re much more interested in water and arrow bamboo types!

Our WooBamboo toothbrushes are the highest quality available. Our bamboo is 100% FSC Certified sustainably harvested and manufactured in FDA approved facilities. Also, the bristles are dental-grade nylon! That’s why we’re dentist approved, and Mother Nature recommended.

Unfortunately, if you’re a retail consumer we only ship within the US. We do have products sold in 60+ countries and 19,000+ retailers worldwide! So keep an eye out for WooBamboo items next time you head out.

If you’re a distributor curious about distribution or wholesale outside of the US, please visit our Wholesale Woo page, or email smiles@woobamboo.com to get in touch about carrying our products!

Totally. If you are a company or dental office, we can laser-etch your logo, name, phone number or web address directly onto the handle! Depending on your time frame and the quantity you’re looking for, we may also be able to offer different bristle colors and different bamboo toothbrush handle shapes… Click Here for more info!

If you are just looking to get your own name etched into the handle, or maybe are interested in giving an eco-awesome gift to someone you love, you can order a custom 6-pack in our online shop, here!
