Go green while you clean your teeth. Sounds like a good plan, right? Bogobrush aims to not only produce a 100% biodegradable toothbrush but to help someone in need with their plan to give a Bogobrush away to someone who needs one with every one that is purchased.

The brother and sister team of John and Heather McDougall wanted to design a product that brought social awareness and environmental action to people’s everyday lives. Growing up the children of a dentist, it seemed only fitting to reinvent the toothbrush.

The design is sculpted from bamboo and uses nylon bristles that are biodegradable, meaning that no part of it will end up in a landfill.

They’re available for pre-order and you have the option to purchase one or a year’s supply.
