Win Two Cool Bamboo Toothbrushes from The Humble Company

humble toothbrush


Dear friends,

I was astonished to learn that every year, the world consumes more than 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes – and most end up in landfills and oceans.

The Humble Co. is on a mission to create change. The company makes products that are kind to the planet, and their toothbrushes have handles made from 100% biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo.  The packaging is eco-friendly, and the box and inside wrapper are made from recycled materials. Best of all, every Humble purchase goes towards funding oral health projects for children in need.

I receive many product review requests for Happy Simple Living, and since we’re all about simplifying and enjoying less stuff I usually decline. But when The Humble Co. reached out to see if I would like to try their toothbrushes, I thought their products might be a good fit.

I love the authentic, simple look and feel of the bamboo handles, and the toothbrushes work great; I tried the medium bristles and was very happy with the reach and feel of the brush. They come in adult and children’s sizes with your choice of soft of medium bristles in fun colors like hot pink, bright blue and black. The brushes are reasonably priced at $4.99 each.

The nice people at The Humble Co. have kindly provided a pair of their eco-friendly toothbrushes for TWO lucky readers. To enter the giveaway for two brushes, just leave a comment at the bottom of this page and reply to this question:

What is making you smile these days?

(My answer: The prettiest springtime I can ever remember in Colorado. My friend Kathleen from The Fresh Cooky coming for our monthly brunch/blog mastermind this morning. Strawberry plants blooming. Summer break in eight days. Fun plans ahead.)

The giveaway is open to anyone with a U.S. shipping address and runs through Sunday, June 3, 2018 at midnight MST. I’ll e-mail you if you’re the lucky winner.

BIG thanks to The Humble Co. for providing their wonderful products for this giveaway, and good luck to all of you!
