The OLA Cycle toothbrush is the latest addition to the OLA Bamboo family. It is a Canadian-made toothbrush with a handle made from manufacturing scraps. Circular economy at its best and a worldwide premiere! Our OLA Cycle toothbrushes are made of guitar scraps, which means no more trees need to be cut down in our Canadian forests, and it’s a great way to revalorize pieces of wood that would have otherwise been lost. 100% Canadian, 100% ecological and 100% new!

Your toothbrush should always air dry. It is best to use an open toothbrush holder that does not hold water.

Let your toothbrush dry before putting it in a travel case.

We do not recommend storing your toothbrush in a closed drawer or cabinet.

Once your toothbrush has reached the end of its lifespan (it should be changed every 3–4 months) simply pull out the bristles using pliers or break the head before putting the handle in the compost. The rest goes in the trash. You can also reuse the handle as a stake to support a plant, identify your plants in the garden or start your campfire. Give free rein to your imagination.

The wood used to make our OLA Cycle toothbrushes is red maple (Acer Rubrum), commonly known as Plaine. We do not cut more trees to make our toothbrushes because we take scraps from the manufacturing industry; we currently have an agreement with a guitar factory in Quebec. Choosing OLA Cycle is choosing a circular economy!

What wood is used for OLA Cycle toothbrushes and cotton swabs?
We use red maple (Acer Rubrum) for the OLA Cycle line, commonly called Plaine. This is a great way to recycle waste and be even more ecological!

Is the use of red maple as ecological as that of bamboo?

Yes, we are very proud to have thought of the creation of our OLA Cycle line so that it is 100% circular economy! Using scraps from the manufacturing industry makes that full circle complete. We currently have an agreement with a factory that makes guitars in Quebec. We buy pieces that would have been a waste to them and transform them into fantastic household products you need. It’s a great way to give a second life to wood that could still be used but is too small for a guitar; it’s a win-win!

Do OLA Cycle toothbrushes and cotton swabs encourage deforestation?

No, because we use scraps from the manufacturing industry. We give a second life to pieces that are unusable by other industries because of their size but are perfect for making toothbrushes or cotton swabs.

Where are OLA Cycle toothbrushes and cotton swabs made?

The OLA Cycle line is 100% made in Canada, more precisely in our factory in Drummondville, Quebec.

Is OLA Cycle and OLA Bamboo the same company?
OLA Cycle is a new line of ecological products made from Canadian wood that encourages a circular economy. These products are designed, manufactured and sold by the OLA Bamboo team.

My OLA Cycle toothbrushes have some irregularities, is it normal?
Yes, absolutely! It is a reaction of maple wood at the cut of our machinery. It is only little burns on the wood. For us, this adds more personality at OLA Cycle toothbrushes. Each one of them is unique!
