WooBamboo Eco-Friendly, Green Toothbrush Review - You Need This!

Saving The World (& my health), One Toothbrush At A Time!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Well, that title might sound a little dramatic, but in a way…it’s true!

I received two WooBamboo! toothbrushes to review. You might be thinking…

Yeah, and who cares about a toothbrush!??

Well, me. I do. And maybe you should, too.

From WooBamboo!’s website…

There are over 7 billion people in the world, most of which brush their teeth with a typical plastic toothbrush. What is overlooked, however, is that most of these people go through several toothbrushes a year, equaling an incredible amount of waste in our oceans and landfills.

Wow, now that’s a perspective, eh!??

Why bamboo?

The Moso bamboo used in these toothbrushes is grown organically, with absolutely no chemicals or pesticides at all. A non-toxic toothbrush!

Sounds a lot better than the BPA plastic most of us have been putting into our mouths and into landfills, eh?

This bamboo is very sustainable, too, as bamboo grows at a very quick rate. Oh…and this is not the type of bamboo that pandas eat, so don’t worry about cutting into their food supply. 😉

Also, many of you may have bamboo cutting boards. Why? Not only do they work very well (they are durable), but bamboo is also antimicrobial. You won’t have any bacteria growing on your toothbrush.

Whew! That all sounds good to me!

Yeah, but what about the bristles?

The bristles are high quality Dupont Tynex. When you are done with your toothbrush, simply remove the recyclable bristles (that’s right…recycle them!) and know that the handle of your old toothbrush will biodegrade. Yup, just toss it into your compost pile.


My personal experience…

I received two toothbrushes to try (in their recycled packaging!); both soft bristles with one being a slim handle and the other a standard handle.

My husband and I have used both over the past month. I prefer the slim handle, as I have a smaller mouth than he does.

We didn’t need a toothbrush to tell us that.
Hahaha!!! Just teasin’, Lover.

At first, the bamboo did feel a little odd in my mouth.

I mean, I’ve been using toxic, BPA-filled toothbrushes all of my life, so yes…the bamboo was different.

After about 4 brushes, I was used to it and didn’t even notice.

Actually, that’s not true. I do notice. I think about it each time I brush.

Hey, this isn’t a toxic, plastic, BPA, landfilling toothbrush in my mouth. Nice!

My teeth are clean and feel great after brushing. The bristles reach hard to reach places, which is important to me.

My ONLY (very small) concern is that I did lose two bristles in the past month, which is more than I lose with other toothbrushes.

Is that a HUGE concern to me? No; two bristles is nothing.

In fact, after doing a bit of digging around I found that this is a rare occasion, but normal.

They do not use glue to secure their bristles, only pressure. I actually really like that!!!

Would I purchase these in the future?

Yes, absolutely. I WILL purchase these in the future.

You can learn more on WooBamboo’s website and also learn more on Amazon where they also sell them (and they are part of Amazon Prime, too).

Their slogan?

Eco Friendly Toothbrushes
Dentist Approved, Mother Nature Recommended

…I’d now add to that…

Until next time…

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. I am thrilled you love our brushes! Fantastic review. Many, many thanks. We try hard, and it’s great that you notice the little things. You’re exactly who we do this for.

  2. I hadn’t even considered that my plastic toothbrush was ending up as pollution. I love that you brought it to my attention so I can make a better choice.

  3. While I am fond of Bamboo, I am overly cautious of anything made from Dupont. Personally I’m not fond of the company. I am going to read up further on Tynex. and who knows, I still may try out the toothbrush. Thank you for the review.

  4. I love bamboo. I would love to grow it (maybe this year?) for posts and other fun projects. And the whole toothbrush thing… I’m glad to see a natural toothbrush. I didn’t know about these. 🙂
