Hi community Roz and Ali here! We are the female founding team of Toothbuckle.
We are of the mindset that the world does not need more products – But hey how about a better solution to an existing problem.
So, at Toothbuckle our goal is two-fold: to leave the world a better place than we found it: and people better off before they found us.
So, we set out to create a considered solution to what we saw some major issues around our oral hygiene and the planet.
So, let’s break it down:
We were both working in the airline business and wanted to create a premium toothbrush cover that was a leap away from the plastic alternatives already out there.
We needed to come up with something that would safely protect the toothbrush when at home or travelling and at the same time, be kinder to the environment.
Most of us buy our toothbrush but it never comes with a cover as added protection.
The ones that are out there are made of plastic, poorly fitting, bulky, come loose in transit. Often harbour bacteria causing a bad smell and gunk residue.
We set about to carefully select our material (silica) that is long lasting and effective.
The streamline patterned design covers your manual toothbrush head and provides ventilation, that facilitated the natural air-drying process.
Toothbuckle keeps away the transfer of germs from the bathroom onto your toothbrush and then into your mouth.
The key benefits of having your Toothbuckle are:
. Locks onto your toothbrush head securely whether you are on the move or at home.
. A ventilated cover which allows the toothbrush to fully dry out in-between brushing.
. Real silver is embedded into every toothbrush cover to give that additional antibacterial protection.
. Easy to use, exceptionally durable and sustainable.
. Excellent value for money, as there is no reason to ever throw Toothbuckle away as it lasts a lifetime and is just as effective as the day you bought it.
. Making Toothbuckle an essential part of your hygeine routine means that everyday airborne germs, toilet spray and cross contamination is a problem of the pass.
Problem : Each of us is ingesting micro-plastics every day.
Solution : Because let’s be honest- there is no use covering your toothbrush with a plastic cover if you are going to take in toxins at the same time. Plus, Toothbuckle has no bad taste or smell like plastic covers; it’s a fact.
Problem : For better or for worse (and more recently worse) plastic has changed our everyday life. Plastic is one of the cheapest materials on the planet but at an extremely high cost to us and the environment.
Solution : When it comes to the environment, Toothbuckle silicone is highly durable and fully recyclable. Our Toothbuckle being fantastically reusable and long-lasting offsets millions of plastic covers from circulation.
Problem : 95% of us think that buying another plastic toothbrush or cover won’t make any real difference. You might too?
Solution : The truth is every time you choose to buy another plastic toothbrush or cover know that it takes 400 years for every product to breakdown and even then, there will still be traces left behind. So, let’s all choose wisely.
By deciding to use Toothbuckle’s natural silicone covers and bamboo toothbrushes you are protecting yourself and your family, now and for the future against the plastic problem we all have.
