With awareness for environmental issues on the rise across the planet, this family-owned and operated company decided to do more than just talk about it: they decided to get to work. Founded in mid-2017, The future is bamboo started with a simple idea: an eco-friendly alternative to prevent 4.9 billion plastic toothbrushes to end up in our oceans and landfills yearly. Since then, The future is bamboo's demand has grown from not only bamboo toothbrushes but to everyday essentials such as straws, utensils and even cotton swabs. "As the Green movement grows we are seeing a steady shift in consumer consciousness. Customers are now more than ever savvy with what they put in their carts. We aim to make eco-friendly products accessible and affordable to everyone" says Naomi Berg co-founder. Why bamboo? It is biodegradable, naturally antimicrobial and highly sustainable; it can grow up to 91 cm in one day, making it an amazing resource. The bamboo used is from the MOSO (Phyllostachys edulis) variety, which is not a variety that pandas eat, therefore not depleting their food sources. "As a vegan brand, it was really important to us" mentions Sylvie Langlois, co-founder. Thank you for making an impact with us!
