Using Mother Nature's plentiful gifts to our advantage, the natural plaque-fighting, teeth-whitening properties of activated charcoal keep your mouth healthy and your smile at its whitest and brightest. The bamboo handle on this biodegradable toothbrush is stronger than wood, more durable than plastic, and won’t splinter, warp or soften. It’s also water-resistant, so there's no need to dry your recyclable toothbrush after brushing.
Over a billion plastic toothbrushes are heaped onto landfills in the United States every year, adding up to 50 million pounds of waste and releasing toxic chemicals into the air over the hundreds of years they’ll take to decompose. Plastic toothbrush pollution in the ocean is also a growing problem. Now there's a way to be ecologically responsible, while also keeping your mouth healthy and your smile white and bright!
The Brilliant Black Bamboo Toothbrush measures 7.5" long and is biodegradable, the handle is made entirely with bamboo. Bristles are BPA free and infused with activated charcoal.

Where does it go at the end of its life?
Once enjoyed, all Terra & Co's sustainable oral care packaging can be recycled / upcycled. The bamboo toothbrush handle and floss can go to the compost.
Terra & Co. was created by two sisters, Amra and Azra. It all started with a label. How crazy is it that there’s a warning label on most tubes of toothpaste? They decided that we wanted a danger-free toothpaste. So, they made one.
Amra formulated the ingredients. Pregnant with her first daughter, Amra quickly learned that more than 232 chemicals make their way from the mother’s environment into the baby. Wanting something safe for everyone, Amra turned her kitchen into a toothpaste lab. The natural ingredients you see today were chosen by her. Azra designed the packaging. Along with health, sustainability is another aspect of Terra & Co.’s mission. Azra hones her fine arts background and work as a makeup artist to design the recyclable/biodegradable packaging.

As Bosnian refugees, they know firsthand about receiving aid—which is why every purchase goes back to organizations like the Los Angeles Downtown Women’s Center.
