Welcome to the OraWellness BrushEco Mission…
Help clean up the planet
Reduce plastic pollution
Create healthier mouths
…one toothbrush at a time.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi
Humans have created a huge global plastic pollution problem. Plastics never really "go away"; they just break down into smaller and smaller particles (called "microplastics") that continue to pollute oceans, waterways, land, and even the food chain that we all depend on.
The true cost of a product is its long-term environmental impact.
The good news is, we can all take action to care for ourselves, for each other, and for our beautiful planet.
Introducing OraWellness BrushEco: The Bamboo Bass Toothbrush with a Mission
BrushEco is an eco-friendly Bass toothbrush that helps:
- clean up our planet's existing plastic burden,
- reduce plastic consumption, and
- create healthier mouths (and bodies).
How can a single toothbrush accomplish all three of these goals?
BrushEco funds worldwide plastic pollution cleanup efforts
100% of BrushEco profits are donated to organizations that are engaged in global-scale plastic clean up efforts.
Recycling and reducing our personal plastic consumption are important, but they aren’t going to clean up the garbage patches that are already floating in the oceans. To fix this, individuals and businesses need to join arms and help fund the cleanup of our existing global mess.
Thankfully, many organizations are already working to clean up our oceans and other waterways.
But they need our help
100% of BrushEco profits are donated to organizations that are implementing solutions to our global plastic problem.
By purchasing BrushEco, you are directly funding and supporting global cleanup efforts by supporting these organizations. Here are some of our favorites:
BrushEco reduces personal plastic consumption
An estimated 1 billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away each year. And that’s just in the USA!
We need to reduce the plastic burden that we all create in the first place.
As consumers, we have the power to align our purchases with our long-range values to reduce plastic consumption. Even our smallest daily actions can wind up making a big impact.
As a business, we take our environmental responsibility seriously. When new options become available, we continue to refine our products and packaging to reduce or eliminate the plastics that they contain.
BrushEco is made of 99.97% biodegradable and compostable materials.
The handle is made of bamboo, which we chose because:
- It's grass, and it's one of the fastest growing plants on earth.
- It thrives without the use of pesticides.
- It’s beneficial for the soil.
- It's highly renewable.
- It produces 35% more oxygen than trees.
We also chose to use steel staples to hold the bristles in place (no nasty glue chemicals here!).
If we all make the shift to sustainable toothbrushes, we can prevent 50 million pounds of plastic from entering the waste stream.
The only part of BrushEco that does not decompose on its own are the bristles. (And just as soon as sustainable tech provides us with a compostable bristle solution, BrushEco will be 100% biodegradable. :) ).
Even the packaging is more sustainable: BrushEco comes in a compostable vegetable cellulose bag inside a post-consumer recycled paperboard box.
BrushEco creates healthier mouths (and bodies)
By the age of 30, over 90% of adults have some form of active gum disease (aka "periodontal disease" or "periodontitis").
And, a whopping 65% of children already show signs of active gum disease by the time they're 15 years old!
Since researchers have linked gum disease to all kinds of whole-body health issues like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, and Alzheimer’s, this is a really big deal.
Thankfully, there's hope!
With the right tools and techniques, there’s plenty we can do to help support our oral (and whole-body) health.
OraWellness BrushEco is the first eco-friendly toothbrush with a Bass design
It has the same key features that medical doctor and researcher Dr. Charles C. Bass used to successfully stop his own advancing gum disease, including:
- Medium-firmness bristles
that gently clear away plaque and 'thug bugs' (pathogenic bacteria), especially where we need it most: just below the gum line.
- Rounded, polished bristle tips
that gently massage (instead of the typical rough-cut toothbrush bristles that irritate gums and etch teeth over time).
- A shorter handle
that encourages the user to grasp the brush in their fingertips (like you would grasp a violin bow) rather than in a fist. This 'fingertip grip' transfers way less pressure onto teeth and gums.

"I am so happy to finally have found the perfect toothbrush! It's environmentally sustainable, a perfect size, and even the packaging is biodegradable! No more using big clunky plastic that ends up in the ocean! I owe a gigantic debt of gratitude to OraWellness for teaching me proper tooth and gum care and now for being my go-to website for supplies. Thank you!"
There are lots of bamboo toothbrushes on the market.
What makes BrushEco any different?
Any bamboo toothbrush reduces plastic consumption, but only BrushEco:
- Has a Bass design that provides gum-disease-stopping power
- Donates 100% of profits to help fund global plastic cleanup initiatives.
We Can All Help Clean Up This Mess
It's time for consumers and companies (both small and large) to work together to help move forward sustainable solutions for future generations.
By simply replacing your current toothbrush with BrushEco, you’re supporting your oral health and making Mother Earth a healthier, cleaner, and more sustainable home for our children and grandchildren.
Together, we can help clean up the planet, reduce plastic pollution, and create healthier mouths, one toothbrush at a time.
