If you want a healthy kid, you have to teach them healthy lifestyle choices. Here's a few healthy habits I reinforce daily with my kids that have helped aim them in the right direction that may be familiar with you as well:
•Stay well hydrated- about one ounce of water per pound of body weight daily
•Try to eat the rainbow every day- adequate servings of fruits and veggies
• Brush teeth twice a day
During the Make it Green in 2015 Campaign, we've discussed how to make more healthy and ecologically friendly choices for our entire family. When I came across WooBamboo Eco Toothbrushes, I was super excited to know that there is a company that cares about our Earth and the health of my family, just like I do.
WooBamboo was founded by Steve Hyde, Christopher Fous and Tom Burt who are all about the idea of an easy to use product that inspires people to keep making eco-friendly decisions. By using bamboo from a sustainably harvested, organically grown source, WooBamboo Eco Toothbrushes aren't just eco-friendly but Panda friendly! The bristles are Dupont Tynex nylon applied to the brush using aluminum staples rather than glue. When your toothbrush goes kaput, the entire handle will biodegrade!
With plastics ALL around us, we're constantly in an environment with the chemicals used in manufacturing them, such as BPA- a chemical used to strengthen/harden them. BPA can disrupt the brain, affect behavior (1) and The National Toxicology Program has linked to other health care concerns (2). Phthalates are chemicals used to mold plastics and are known as a carcinogen (3). They have also been shown to cause birth defects (4). Avoiding BPA and Phthalates from coming in contact with your little ones seems to be the healthier way to go. WooBamboo knows that this is something parents are concerned about and you can be ensured that the entire line of toothbrushes are free from these chemicals.
The kid's line, called SPROUT has bristles that are super soft for sensitive teeth and gums, perfect right from the first tooth. The handles are ergonomic and sized just for little hands. WooBamboo Eco Toothbrushes are very appealing with bright double colored bristles, which was something my 5 year old noticed right away- she had to have the pink and blue one!
WooBamboo Eco Toothbrushes are for kids, adults and there's even a pet line too! For the adults, the handle options are either Standard or Slim in Super Soft, Soft or Medium bristles. You can find WooBamboo coming soon to places like Target or Lucky's Market, but right now you can SHOP on Amazon (thank you for supporting my blog by shopping with my Amazon affiliate link)!
WooBamboo continues to show their passion for being eco-friendly by using soy-based ink on recycled packaging that's recyclable! This is a great company and my experience is wonderful! I think you'll love WooBamboo too!
Making small changes, like swapping out your plastic toothbrushes may not seem like it will impact much, but it does. How many plastic toothbrushes do you throw away a year? How many per your city? How many per your state? You can be the change. You can teach your kids it's easy to make that change!
What is my favorite thing about this product? My kids love their WooBamboo Eco Toothbrushes, and I feel confident these toothbrushes are safer than most other toothbrushes available on the market. My family is proud to be doing something better for our health and for our planet's well-being!
Is there anything I'd change about the product? I wish WooBamboo would go completely biodegradable, but pig hair in a toothbrush is just wrong in my opinion. I do not know too much about other natural, plant based fibers that would work, but if there's something available, I'd be happy to have that as an option!
I give WooBamboo a 9.5/10!
