Bamboo Toothbrush - Medium Bristles

Regular price £4.75
The best lookin’ bamboo toothbrush out there!

The luxurious, rounded and ergonomic handle is crafted from sustainable, organic bamboo which is naturally anti bacterial. Brushes come with a choice of soft (dentist recommended!) or medium bristles and in different colours.
Approximately 19cm long
15g (including paper sleeve)
Organic Moso bamboo
Bristles are blend of 62% castor bean oil (renewable vegetable oil & 35% nylon)
Dipped in either white or grey paint, which has been tested according to REACH legislation.
Storage/Cleaning & Care:
Store in a dry place and don’t leave in standing water
Replace approximately every 3 months or sooner if bristles are frayed
Occasionally a bristle may fall out - don't panic! This is simply a sign that you are using a handcrafted brush made in the traditional way - not with bristles moulded into plastic.
Tissue paper and paper sleeve
End-of-Life Disposal:
Dispose of your toothbrush in ordinary bin – overtime everything but the bristles will biodegrade – OR you can pull the bristles out with a pair of pliers and re-use the bamboo handle for something else! We hear they work nicely as plant stirrers or plant canes
Tissue paper and paper sleeve are recyclable with paper products
Truthbrushes are made in China  - the natural habitat of bamboo. Bamboo is resistant to natural pests, which means it is farmed organically. The bamboo used comes is Moso from an FSC managed sustainable forest in China. Moso bamboo grows up to a metre a day here as it has the perfect conditions to thrive. Plus, Moso bamboo is inedible to Pandas the harvesting does not negatively affect them. The brushes are sent from China to the UK using carbon offset shipping.


Pretty much, but with a few exceptions which we’ll explain…

Yes, we avoid single-use plastic products and packaging like the plague.
Single use is the type of plastic you use once and throw away, so obviously providing alternatives to single-use is our entire reason for being.

BUT, if we’re being radically transparent (which we are) a couple of our products do contain single-use plastic *components* - those being our Zao mascaras and eye liners. These items have single use PET plastic containers that fit inside the bamboo exterior. Once they’re used, they can be recycled but, by definition they’re single-use plastic. While not ideal, our Zao mascaras and eyeliners are SO much better because they use waaaay less plastic, they’re refillable and they’re free from petro-chemicals so they’re definitely a step forward, even if they’re not a perfect solution.

Also, even though most of our products are made from wonderfully reusable materials like glass, metal, organic cotton and bamboo, a few items do contain some element of plastic - i.e. our reusable sandwich bags that are made from cotton but have an interior plastic liner. In this instance, plastic is what allows the items to be reusable and perform its destiny of replacing plastic Ziploc-style plastic bag and single-use plastic cling film.
While it’s fairly obvious why we use plastic in the instances that we do, we still avoid sweeping statements like “we’re 10000% plastic free” because greenwashing is such a growing problem, so we want to make sure we give YOU all the information so you can make informed decisions as a consumer based on accurate information.
Also, if you want to see what a product is made of, just check out the “Materials/Ingredients” section in the product description so you can see exactly what the product and its packaging is made of.

We are *almost completely* palm-oil free.

Avoiding palm-oil is HUGE for us, but even with that said the refillable mascara and liquid eye liners that we carry from Zao do contain Glycerin, which is a derivative of palm-oil. Zao sources only RSPO certified palm derivatives to ensure the greatest responsibility possible (yay!) but again, we still want to give you all the facts.

All other products are palm free.

Yes, 100%.


First, we’d just like to say, we love our suppliers! We work with companies that share the same commitment to social/environmental sustainability and many are also small business owners too – yahoo!

The majority are UK headquartered, some of whom make their own products in-country, while others have manufacturing in China or India. If that’s the case, we ask them to provide info/certs on the factory conditions to verify social and environmental responsibility and they’re always happy to do so… again, this is why we choose to work with like-minded companies! In addition to UK suppliers we also work with a few companies from Europe or the US when we can’t find a specific item locally.

You can see where each product is made in the description section, under “Ethics.”


Of course! We use recycled cardboard boxes, Kraft paper, paper tape and green Jiffy padded envelopes. We also reuse incoming packaging as often as possible with our outgoing orders to keep our processes as circular as we can!
Even though our packaging is recyclable, we encourage customers to reuse it if possible and keep the circular cycle going!

We offer a click-and-collect service for local, Edinburgh customers and shipping via Royal Mail for the rest of the UK and Europe.
Click-&Collect orders are delivered to the collection point the next day by 4pm and you have 5 days to collect your parcel.
Postal orders typically go out the next day Monday to Thursday. Orders placed Saturday/Sunday will go out Monday. We’ll keep you notified by email if there are ever any delays.

We wanted to make it easier for our Edinburgh customers to access plastic-free products, even if they don’t live near a zero-waste shop, while also cutting down on our carbon footprint from local shipping…so we created our Click & Collect system.

The system itself is pretty simple; you purchase online, select the pick-up location from our list of partners and then we deliver your item(s) to that location by 4pm the next day. Just remember you’ll have to pay 75p (in cash) when you collect your order and you’ll need to show an official ID with a name that matches your order info. That’s it!
