Ready for a Functional, Sustainable, and Beautiful Toothbrush?
Functional because of its Bass toothbrush design features: rounded bristle tips, shorter handle, medium-firmness bristles, and (for the Adult 3-row option) spaced out bristle tufts.
Sustainable because BrushEco is made of 99.97% biodegradable and compostable materials.
Beautiful, well, that's a judgment call. But we find the simple design and sustainable, bamboo construction to be beautiful. :)
The BrushEco Mission...
It's no secret that humans have created a big plastic pollution problem, and plastic toothbrushes definitely play a part in that.
An estimated 1 billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away each year. And that’s just in the USA!
To help reduce our plastic footprint, we created BrushEco, the first eco-friendly toothbrush with a Bass design. But, we really wanted to do something to help clean up the existing plastic mess that's already floating around the world's oceans and other waterways.
So, we're donating 100% of the profits from BrushEco sales to organizations that are committed to creating and implementing solutions to our global plastic problem.
Among our favorites are:
The Ocean Cleanup Project
Plastic Pollution Coalition
Algalita Marine Research
And many others!
That means that by purchasing BrushEco, you are directly funding and supporting global cleanup efforts.
It's time for companies (both small and large) to champion causes that help move forward sustainable, earth-conscious solutions for future generations.
OraWellness is proud to do our part to support humanity by finding sustainable alternatives to plastics for our holistic oral health solutions.
Three Design Choices: Junior Size With 3 Rows of Bristles, Adult Size With 3 Rows of Bristles, or Adult Size With 4 Rows of Bristles
Despite the names "Adult size" and "Junior size", there is no set age range for our Bass Toothbrushes. Some of our adult customers prefer to use the Junior toothbrush, as it better suits the size of their mouth. Conversely, some children have larger mouths that can accommodate the Adult size toothbrushes.
All three of our BrushEco options have rounded bristle tips, a shorter handle, and medium-firmness bristles. Although each of the BrushEco options can be used alone to clean the entire mouth, some of our customers prefer to use more than one type of BrushEco for different purposes.
The Adult size 3-row option has bristle tufts that are more spaced out, so this option is really great for cleaning along the gum line with the Bass Brushing Technique, for cleaning between teeth with gaps, and for cleaning around braces.
The Adult size 4-row option and the Junior size 3-row option both have bristle tufts that are closer together. So, they're both great for gently cleaning and polishing the teeth. The Junior size option has a smaller head, so it's particularly helpful for folks who have smaller mouths and for brushing any hard-to-reach areas like behind the lower front teeth and the molars in the back of the mouth.
Do I Need More Than One Toothbrush?
It's really up to you. We've found that there are benefits to having more than one type of toothbrush.
First, when we 'brush our teeth', we are looking to accomplish more than one job.
If you think about it, each tool in a toolkit does its specific job. Picture a carpenter's toolkit--you can't fix everything with a hammer.
We find that the original Adult size 3-row Bass toothbrush that Dr. Bass created so many years ago still works best for wiggling bristles down into gum pockets. And now we also have a 4-row Adult size and a Junior size BrushEco that can each help to clean and gently polish your teeth.
Also, alternating between toothbrushes (for example, using brush A in the mornings and brush B at night) allows more time for each brush to fully dry out between uses. This is an easy way to reduce the risk of 'thug bugs' living on your toothbrush (gross, but possible :).
So How Do I Use More Than One Type of Brush?
We like to clean our gum line and our teeth every day. You too, right?
If you don't have a lot of time, you can try this: brush twice daily, cleaning your gum line really well once a day with the 3-row BrushEco and your teeth really well once a day with the 4-row BrushEco or the Junior BrushEco.
That way, you can effectively care for your teeth and gums every day without having to commit extra time to your oral hygiene routine (and since you're alternating techniques, you'll have a dry brush for each brushing).
Here's a video that demonstrates how to use the 3-row Bass brush design to clean your gum line and stop gum disease.
And here's a video that shares a simple strategy for how to use the 4-row BrushEco or the Junior BrushEco to clean your pearly whites.
We Have Lots of Mouths in Our Home. How Will Each Person Identify Their Toothbrush(es)?
Each BrushEco has a little differentiating design on the handle.
Think art! :)
Current designs are:
While we can't offer you the choice to pick your preferred design, when we pack orders with multiple BrushEco's, our team is going to make sure you have a variety of design options in your package.
Thank you so much for your review!
Since you mentioned it would be nice if there were options for a smaller size, you may be interested to know that we now offer a Junior-size BrushEco. :)
My new toothbrush makes me proud to use it.
It is a pleasure to use this toothbrush --much lighter and it fits my small mouth so much better than a "child's" size. But I especially appreciate the sustainability factor, which is why I bought it. Thank you, Will and Susan, for all the good work you are doing.
Thank you for reaching out to us.
While both Adult BrushEco versions (3-rows of bristles or 4-rows of bristles) can be used on both one's gums and one's teeth, the different bristle spacing does make each one a little more handy for certain functions:
The 3-row version has bristle tufts that are more spaced out, so it’s really great for doing the Bass Brushing Technique along your gum line.
The 4-row option has bristle tufts that are closer together, so it’s wonderful for circling back to gently brush and polish the surfaces of your teeth.
Some of our customers prefer to have one of each Adult BrushEco version so they can use the 3-row along their gum line and then circle back to use the 4-row everywhere else. However, it would be perfectly okay to use just one version for both your gums and teeth. It really comes down to personal preference.
I hope that helps! Aloha! :)
Takes Some Getting Used To
The material the handle is made from is so different from the brushes I normally get from your company. I don't think I will probably get them again. The bristles do an okay job cleaning my teeth but I just can't get used to the texture of the handle in my mouth. I will stick with the Bass toothbrushes.
Thank you for trying BrushEco and for sharing your feedback with us. :)
We’re sorry that you couldn’t get used to the texture of the handle in your mouth.
It’s perfectly okay if you prefer to stick with our original Bass toothbrushes—we completely accept and respect that BrushEco is not for everybody.

Won't the brush again.
I love using the Bass brushes. So I figured I would also like the Eco Brush. The quality remains the same, but, I do not like the feeling of the wood in my mouth and on my lips.
