Why We Partnered with The Humble Co.

A selection of The Humble Co.’s bamboo toothbrushes

This May 2019, we featured products by The Humble Co. in both our vegan Snack Box and vegan Beauty Box. The Humble Co. proudly produces sustainable oral care products including toothbrushes, floss, gum, and more. The Snack Box featured a pack of plastic-free chewing gum, while those who received the Beauty Box got a bamboo toothbrush in a surprise color with an accompanying mini toothpaste.

Are you new to using a product by The Humble Co.? Here’s all you need to know. The company was established in 2013 but is quickly growing throughout the world. You can find their products online, on Amazon, and even in dental clinics. The Humble Co. is based in Sweden and each product showcases a sleek and efficient Scandinavian design. But what we love most about them is that they founded the Humble Smile Foundation to deliver oral care products and provide oral health education to kids around the world. Currently, they have active projects in the following countries: India, Ethiopia, Nepal, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Cambodia, Transylvania, Cuba, Burkina Faso, Jamaica, Romania, Sri Lanka, Zambia, South Africa, Uganda, Cameroon, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, and Tanzania. If you like the products you got in your May box, or you missed the box :(, we encourage you to buy from them as every purchase goes toward funding these projects.

Did you know that 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes are used and disposed of every year? You can help to reduce that rate by switching to a bamboo alternative, like that made by The Humble Co., as the plastics end up in our landfills and oceans. We know our subscribers value living ethically and sustainably, which is why we always do our best to provide you with items that can help you live well without sacrificing performance or style.

In honor of the partnership, The Humble Co. also did a giveaway with us! One lucky winner won 6 brushes, 4 tubes of toothpaste, 8 packs of gum, and 5 dental flosses!

 

THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

CONGRATULATIONS K. VELTRI!
