Our Big
Little Story.

100% of our profits are used to help fund primary health programs in remote Indigenous communities in Australia.

The really bad news: every plastic toothbrush ever made still exists today.

The good news: Our brushes are made from bamboo and nylon 4, which means they'll only take about a year to break down instead of 600.

The solution is simple: swap to bamboo and together we can make the world a better place.
We thoughtfully designed our brushes in Melbourne to make sure they look great in your bathroom. Our bamboo is sustainably grown and harvested, and the brushes are handmade by our buddies in China.

One of our goals is to create long lasting and close relationships with our suppliers and because of this, we have seen and understood their manufacturing process by spending time on their turf.

It all started with a busted wisdom tooth that soon turned into an agonising toothache — and after putting it off — eventually a dentist's bill.

It wasn’t access to health care or lack of education that stopped me from getting treatment. It was apathy. I’d let my health and quality of life deteriorate, because I knew I had a safety net. I ignored the issue for as long as it suited me.


I realised that the outcome of my story would have been very different if I lived in a developing country, or even a remote community here in Australia.

Thankfully, there is research that suggests fixing the oral health of the  most vulnerable communities in the world could have a significant positive impact on the overall outcomes for their nations.


For most of us, owning a toothbrush feels like a given —but the icky plastic ones pretty much always end up in landfill — and take up to 600 years to break down. So we decided to create a beautiful and sustainable brush that also helps to give a little back.

The right resources paired with some good education, can prevent dental issues before they even occur. With your help, we can use little brushes to do big things.

We all buy toothbrushes. However, generic plastic toothbrushes pretty much always end up in landfill — and never break down. So we decided to create sustainable, beautiful toothbrushes that also help the less fortunate.
