A simple start
Our Founder, Mike Donovan, noticed one night back in 2015 that his childrens’ toothbrushes were looking a bit frayed and worn so made a mental note that they needed replacing. This planted a seed to check ‘how often should you replace your toothbrush?’
This little thought sent him on a spiral of discovery, including shocking health statistics and even more shocking plastic waste numbers. And so, the idea of an eco and health-focused oral care brand was born.
To take on the beast
In development stages, it became clear that large corporations were heavily focused on selling a cure with poor oral hygiene practices at a huge environmental cost.
In an endless cycle of causing problems and selling a false solution, nearly 1 billion plastic single-use brushes are disposed of every year. These brushes will likely never decompose and most will end up in our oceans.
And make a change
We founded Brushbox with the core value of making a big difference through little changes. We believe it’s the little things that can add up to create massive impacts.
We realised quickly the solution wasn’t only in creating the Bamboo toothbrushes. We needed to offer a socially responsible service supplying regular fresh brushes and pastes without damaging the environment in the process.
All our products and packaging are made with an ecologically friendly mindset with a huge focus on our own individual oral health.
That lasts forever
In our time as a company, we’re proud to have prevented tens of thousands of single-use brushes polluting our oceans and filling landfills.
We’re always adapting and putting in simpler, greener measures to ensure the change we make not only benefits you, but future generations also.
