Your Plastic-Free home, in a toothbrush

The Bathroom and Kitchen are clear winners when it comes to producing plastic-waste at home!
So, we reinvented the bamboo toothbrush to not only be 100% Plastic-Free, but also contain seeds to grow a Basil or Mint plant and inspire a Plastic-Free kitchen by swapping home grown fresh herbs for plastic-packaged supermarket bought herbs!

Why seeds in a toothbrush?

Bamboo Barter bamboo toothbrushes with mint leafs.

We're inspired by nature, and in nature there's no waste! Simply the waste of one eco-system is repurposed in another eco-system.
Put in our context, the end of toothbrush use in the bathroom is celebrated as a herb in the kitchen, which means one less bag of plastic packaged herb consumed and wasted!
And that's our idea of a changing world!

  • Bamboo Barter in the bathroom

    Approx 3.5 million toothbrushes, most made of plastic, are sold and thrown worldwide, each year! These toothbrushes simply sit and pollute the land and ocean and have detrimental impacts on the environment! So we made our toothbrushes 100% plant-based to exist in harmony with nature!

  • Bamboo Barter in the kitchen

    What's the first thing you see when you walk into your kitchen? Fruits, veggies and herbs wrapped in plastics right! Over 500,000 tons of plastic food packaging are used in the UK, every year! By simply giving a second life to your toothbrush as a Basil or Mint plant, you can start your own little herb garden and reduce consumption and waste of plastic-packaged supermarket bought herbs!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long does the bamboo toothbrush last?

Our bamboo toothbrushes are designed to last as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush. However, it is advised by dentists to change your toothbrush every 3 months or when the bristles starts wearing, whichever is first. 

2. Where are the seeds located?

The seeds are located inside the handle of the toothbrush, which is securely sealed with a biodegradable sticker. 

3. When can you plant the seeds?

We recommend planting the seeds before you start using the toothbrush as you'll find your seeds sprout into a lush Basil/Mint plant by the end of your toothbrush life!
