Help Give the Gift of a Toothbrush

Have you ever been in a situation where you just wanted to find the perfect gift for someone who just seems to have everything?  I am always trying to give gifts that are not just wanted, but something that can extend beyond just the gift itself.  In the past I have not only given my recipients gift cards and presents that were on their wish list, but I also try to find another gift to accompany it that will really make them think a little more.   That is why I want to challenge you to buy gifts that actually give back!

As you are thinking of gifts to give the graduate in your life, or planning to find dad something that means more, why not check out something we just recently learned about, Humble Brush.  Humble Brush is a toothbrush company based out of Sweden.  Developed and supported by dentists, Humble Brush is an eco-friendly and socially responsible company that understands what it means to give back.

Did you know that we consume over 3.6 BILLION toothbrushes every year!  Unfortunately about 2 billion of them end up in our oceans and landfills each year.  Think about that!  Most of our toothbrushes are made out of plastic, a plastic that does not biodegradable.  What is cool about Humble Brush is that they make their toothbrushes out of bamboo.  Bamboo is plant that grows back after it has been cut.  That means that we are not using up fossils fuels to produce their handles.   Each brush is made from nylon bristles.

Another wonderful thing about Humble Brush is that they give back!  Each time you buy a toothbrush from them, you are helping a child to get the dental care that they need.   Imagine using pieces of wood, bird feathers and fish spines to clean your teeth!  That is what some people in our world are using.  While we may come to take for granted out dental care system in America, there are some parts of our planet where children and adults have never owned a toothbrush!  Humble Smile Foundation, a non-profit organization registered in Sweden, gets a portion of the money from each Humble Brush that is sold and that money goes to providing a comprehensive preventive oral care program for those in need.

Why not show those that you love and are purchasing gifts for how much you care by investing in a product that gives back to our world.  There are many of them around, and Humble Brush is an excellent one to invest your money in!  It is the perfect present for Dad and the college-bound graduate! They will humble the world with Humble Brush – the 100% biodegradable toothbrush made from naturally sustainable bamboo! Hand-crafted to perfection, each brush addresses two major issues with toothbrushing today: toothbrushes leave an environmental footprint and not everyone owns one.   What a way to show others you care by getting them something that gives back.  Who knows?  Perhaps your gift will trigger in them a love for looking for gifts that give back!  Maybe we can start something new!  Give a gift they want and add in a small gift that gives back!

    Ohh, I love that many companies now are into corporate social responsibility. Plus their initiative that giving a porting to less fortunates is such a very good idea.

    I love how eco-friendly this toothbrush is. I think it’s the perfect gift and it’s also a must have at home. You get to take good care of your teeth without harming the environment.

    I have never thought to give someone a toothbrush for a gift. I think a toothbrush would make a great gift for someone who is moving or as you suggested, a student who is graduating and moving away.I love that Humble Toothbrush gives back to the community. More companies should do this!
