Small actions can make a difference. At the Bam&Boo we believe that even the smallest things deserve to be rethought. So in 2017, The Bam&Boo Toothbrush was born with this purpose. A sustainable toothbrush with a bamboo handle and an eco-friendly packaging!
Over the last years, our oral care family has been constantly growing with the introduction of new products in our eco-friendly portfolio. Our main goal remains the same: bringing social and eco responsibility to our beloved customers!
How did we get here?
The idea was born in a casual conversation with friends when the sustainability market was still incipient. Changing the consumers’ mindset urged us to take action.
Nowadays it is widely known that billions of plastic toothbrushes are discarded every year all around the world, most of them ending up in landfill or even worse in our oceans. But in 2017, most people were still unaware of this major problem. So, Nuno and Fernando - friends and co-founders of The Bam&Boo – seized the opportunity to bring social responsibility to the oral care market launching a Bamboo Toothbrush.
Why a bamboo toothbrush?
You should learn some fun & true facts that empowered us:
- Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world while requiring few resources to develop.
- Bamboo is considered one of the most sustainable raw materials on the planet!
- Naturally antibacterial, bamboo is the best choice not only for the environment but also for oral health.
- Our bamboo is 100% organic and natural–FSC certified - YEAH!
The toothbrush is a common everyday object used by the majority of the population.
Let’s get real: what better way to start an eco-journey? If you haven’t yet taken this small action, today is the perfect day to do it. Check it out here.
Where do we wanna go?
We are constantly searching for new and innovative alternatives in oral care products that can be highly effective to our customers without compromising our planet. We’ll continue to be true advocates of natural ingredients, cruelty-free products and eco-friendly packaging.
We definitely want to keep spreading the word for a safer & happier planet! These two lovely initiatives have helped us achieve major milestones in our eco-journey:
- Giving back to earth by Planting 1 tree a day
- Protecting our planet & people turning our best-seller products Climate Neutral.
We’ll persist on Small Actions and Big Smiles!
What do we value the most?
Do business without compromising the planet
We are totally aware it’s a constant learning process, but this is our ongoing challenge. As an eco-friendly business we work every day on finding new alternatives and practices that enable us not only to do less harm, but mostly to do more good. For us. For future generations.
As Anne-Marie Bonneau once said “We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”
Build efficient products
Efficiency is key in our development process. Providing long lasting materials that can be easily disposed (recycled and/or composted) while satisfying our customers’ needs is crucial and a big part of our sustainable and social responsibility.
Focus on convenience
E-commerce is our main platform. It means you make your conscious and mindful purchase and we deliver it directly to your door. It turns out that choosing a more sustainable lifestyle isn't a hard and drastic decision.
Fact: We plant 1 tree a day to actively compensate the excess carbon generated from our delivery service!
