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.
“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 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, co-founder. 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.
