  1. Bamboo toothbrush and case

We love these toothbrushes because the bristles are mainly made of castor bean oil, a renewable vegetable oil. Whilst they still use some nylon, they are the most plastic free brushes I’ve found. To complete the gift, pair with this lovely bamboo travel case, perfect for travelling and on the go. If that wasn’t enough, another reason why I love Truthbrush is that they plant a tree for every order.
