Did you know that the right toothbrush can make the world even better?
You might wonder, “how can a simple bamboo toothbrush make the world even better?”
We promise we’ll get to that soon. Yet first, we just have to say; you’ll find it quite amazing how the smallest of changes (like switching to bamboo) can make such a tremendous difference.
In fact, the benefits of using a bamboo toothbrush don’t even end at simply making the world a better place. Brushing your baby's teeth will quickly become a safe and enjoyable nightly routine with the right bamboo toothbrush.
However, to enjoy all of these benefits, you need to pick the right bamboo toothbrush.
How do you do that?
Here’s what you need to consider:
We’re going to explore both of these questions, but the right bamboo toothbrush is our Baby Bamboo Toothbrush, to cut a long story short.
Here’s what Ashley S said about it:
Here are 3 more reasons why our baby bamboo toothbrush stands out from the rest and is the right choice for your children.
Bamboo is 100% biodegradable — meaning you won’t be polluting the world with plastic waste every time you have to get your baby a new toothbrush (which you should do every three months!).
Not only that, but bamboo is one of the world's fastest-growing plants. In fact, bamboo can grow half an inch in just an hour! And since bamboo is a renewable source — it can keep doing this until the very end of time.
In other words, bamboo is the gift that keeps giving. It’s biodegradable which contributes to having an impactful zero waste bathroom.
Yet, it’s not just efficiency that makes us love bamboo so much. As said before, bamboo is biodegradable. However, did you know, if something is biodegradable, it helps to save our oceans?
Saving the oceans is something your baby will one day thank you for. You might not think so, but plastic waste in the ocean is a huge problem. In fact, according to Marine plastics, “at least 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year.”
Unfortunately, that number isn’t getting any smaller. However, your contribution in buying a bamboo toothbrush will help mitigate the amount of waste polluting our oceans.
That’s right: you can make a difference — and we want to help you. That’s why for every purchase, we donate a percentage of the purchase cost to the Marine Conservation Society — a community of ocean lovers fighting to save our sea.

Of course, buying bamboo toothbrushes isn’t all about saving the planet. We want to make your life easier, too. So, our bamboo toothbrushes have an easy-grip design. Take a look:
You’ll note a slight curve in the handle. We didn’t include that curve just so the toothbrushes look good (but they do look great, don’t they?!).
In fact, we included the curve as part of our easy-grip design. Ultimately, it’s so your little ones don’t drop their toothbrush while brushing, especially as they grow into toddlers.
While that’s one aspect we’re proud of, did you know it’s not all we’re proud of with these bamboo toothbrushes?
Take a look at the full breakdown:
Indeed, the easy-grip design alone means your child won’t be dropping their toothbrush easily. However, coupled with a water based-toxin free paint and individual colours means if you’re a growing family, you’ll never get your baby's toothbrush mixed up.
However, the BPA Free Soft Bristles is one of the most critical aspects we’re proud of, especially when brushing your baby’s teeth. Let’s talk about that next.
We’re going to get a bit scientific here. BPA is an organic compound called Bisphenol-A that can sometimes be found in toothbrush bristles.
Why is Bisphenol-A something you don’t want in your bristles?
Let’s ask Mayo Clinic:
At Wild & Stone, we don’t just want the best for the planet; we want the best life for your child too. We go through every effort to make sure the bristles on our toothbrushes are BPA free — and we also ensure they’re extra soft.
Here’s a secret: soft bristles are still rigid enough to get in between your baby's teeth and remove anything nasty that might have built up.
Yet, at the same time, because they’re so soft, there’s little risk they’ll damage your baby's gums or enamel.
That’s one of the many reasons Samantha P choose our toothbrush:
Wait, did Samantha mention a toothbrush holder?! Let’s take a look.
The bamboo toothbrush holder is the ideal stand to accompany your bamboo toothbrush. It doesn’t just look good, but it also has a wonderful design and removes clutter from your bathroom.
Here’s are some more benefits of the bamboo toothbrush holder:
Isn’t that wonderful? There’s even a small hole at the base to keep your baby's entire toothbrush well-ventilated.
Here’s what TJ said:
So now we’ve covered the benefits of choosing the right bamboo toothbrush, and you know what to look out for when choosing between the right and wrong one; let’s take a look at how to safely brush your baby's teeth in 3 simple steps.
Important: If your baby’s teeth haven’t grown yet, you shouldn’t use toothpaste.
Did you know? If you haven’t picked up one of our bamboo toothbrushes yet, you can also use your finger (but wrap it in a damp washcloth first).
Our bamboo toothbrushes come in a variety of different colours so that you can pick the perfect match for your child. We also have toothbrushes with extra soft bristles and a selection for adults too.
Don’t worry about taking bamboo from pandas, either. Our toothbrushes are made from sustainably Harvested FSC Certified MOSO Bamboo. This is special bamboo that pandas do not eat.
