Grinbrush have developed a smarter more sustainable toothbrush that has a permanent handle with a recyclable plastic head once the *bristles are removed
Grin is the toothbrush of the future: a sleek aluminum handle that you keep, and replaceable brush heads that you replace when reminded.
The replaceable toothbrush heads use special soft, tapered Nylon that penetrates up to 17% deeper between teeth and gums for a superior clean that can help prevent gum disease.
Plus, the recyclable* toothbrush heads use ~85% less plastic than normal brands.
Billions of toothbrushes are disposed of each year, ending up in landfill or other natural environments including our oceans. Plastic has now become an extreme hazard to our oceans and our health.
* Simon the founder of Grinbrush says “To recycle your brush head you must first remove the bristles. We’re working on it!”
How does Plastic Oceans Canada benefit from our partnership with Grin?
With every subscription purchase of a Grinbrush kit, Grin will donate a dollar amount to our foundation .
Support Grin to jointly help us reduce our plastic footprint!
This #PlasticFreeJuly, pledge to see plastic for what it is: nearly-indestructible, highly polluted and far from disposable.
The bodies of our smartphones, the synthetics in our clothing, the pieces of our furniture and nearly every aspect of our lives today are linked by this common denominator: plastics. Answering global demands for convenience and access, especially in the industries of food and medicine, plastic has allowed for innovations that bring more products to more people than ever before.
My name is Tim Stephenson. I teach science in the Vancouver area. I have started a strong plastic pollution awareness program at my school.
There is clearly an issue that is trending all over the world…plastic pollution. Where I live in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver just this year is now banning plastic straws, putting a fee on plastic bags and ramping up the recycling of single use plastics. The adage that by 2050, plastic in the oceans will outnumber the fish is as commonly heard an expression as ever.
We are pleased to announce that Plastic Oceans Foundation Canada is now registered as a Canadian Charity effective April 16th, 2018
Our Tax Registration # is: 74084 6894 RR001
