About Us

TAOBrush Bamboo Toothbrushes came from a simple idea; how can we, an Aussie and a Swissie, reduce our plastic use in this world. As scuba diving instructors who live on a tiny island called Koh Tao, we see firsthand the amount of rubbish that is left on our beaches and in our oceans. Over the years we have made steps to reduce the amount of plastic we used; no more plastic water bottles, taking eco-bags to the local fruit market, and swapping single-use items for more sustainable and biodegradable options! We first tried bamboo toothbrushes 2 years ago, and while they worked as well as a ‘normal’ plastic toothbrush, we found there was something lacking. The toothbrushes we had were flimsy, poor quality and the bristles fell out quickly. We thought we could do better. And so TAOBrush Bamboo Toothbrushes was created! Our bamboo toothbrushes were carefully sourced from a trusted supplier from the sustainable bamboo forests of China. We designed and chose a toothbrush that would feel sturdy and durable to replicate a traditional plastic handle. We opted to use soft nylon bristles as these are currently the most recommended and efficient way of cleaning your teeth. We personally designed the toothbrushes, and all of the packaging. As a team, we carefully monitor our product, and quality-check each TAOBrush before it leaves for delivery. We chose brown paper to wrap our special packages, and use paper tape to ensure a 100% eco-friendly package delivered to your door! We truly believe that if we all made small but consistent changes in our busy lives, then we can significantly reduce the amount of plastic in this world. Starting with the 2 billion plastic toothbrushes that are thrown away each year. Try our TAOBrush Bamboo Toothbrushes and feel the difference.
