Looking for Best Bamboo Toothbrushes?
OLA Bamboo has set up its manufacturing unit in Canada and this makes us the first company to manufacture bamboo toothbrushes in Canada. And even, according to our research, the first in Canada to make any kind of toothbrush.
By using the OLA Bamboo toothbrush, you are contributing to reducing more than 4.9 billion plastic toothbrushes that are thrown out every year. Our eco-friendly biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes are the best choice for dental hygiene and environmental prosperity. The toothbrushes are sleek and easy to use, with high-quality nylon bristles to protect your gums from scratching as you brush your teeth.
HOW TO DISPOSE
Once your toothbrush has reached the end of its lifespan (it should be changed every 3–4 months) simply pull out the bristles using pliers or break the head before putting the handle in the compost. The rest goes in the trash. You can also reuse the handle as a stake to support a plant, identify your plants in the garden or start your campfire. Give free rein to your imagination.

Welcome to Shades of Green, I’m so glad you’re here!
When I opened the store in 2009 there wasn’t many options for sustainable, earth friendly products in our community. It was a bit hard at first to source these kinds of products but now with so many people getting on board with the Zero waste movement there’s so much more available. We love to support Local and Canadian Made products as much as possible but when we do source products made outside of North America we make sure they are Made responsibly in Fair Trade practices.
Thank you for visiting the shop and wherever you are on your earth loving journey we are here to help. Small changes everyday can make a big impact.
