How do OLA Bamboo products have a positive effect on the environment?

Every year, more than 4.9 billion plastic toothbrushes, billions of straws and disposable plastic utensils end up in garbage dumps and various natural environments around the world. All this plastic takes about 500 years to decompose. Even when it does decompose, its chemical composition remains intact and the entire plastic substance remains in the environment for centuries longer. A lot of this plastic is found in the oceans where it is ingested by birds and fish. Approximately 90% of seabirds have ingested plastic. Bamboo is the main element used in the manufacture of the OLA Bamboo toothbrush. This 100% natural and 100% biodegradable material replaces plastic, a substance very commonly used for the manufacture of conventional toothbrushes. OLA Bamboo utensils are made of 100% birch and straws are made of 100% bamboo. Since bamboo is a plant and birch is a tree, they decompose naturally in the environment. In short, when you dispose of your OLA Bamboo toothbrush, utensils or straws, in whatever way you do so, you help eliminate unnecessary plastic in the environment by replacing it with bamboo or wood, which break down naturally.

Bamboo is the main material used in the manufacture of the OLA Bamboo toothbrush. This 100% natural and 100% compostable plant replaces plastic. Because bamboo is a tree, it decomposes naturally in the environment. By purchasing an OLA Bamboo toothbrush, you help eliminate unnecessary plastic in the environment.

What is the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

There are two categories of compostable products: those that break down in a home compost system and those that decompose in an industrial compost system (e.g. a city compost). Products described as compostable will break down naturally as they are usually made of organic materials (e.g. plants).

The term biodegradable is not always well defined. It refers to any material that will decompose in nature after a certain number of years. However, there is no clear definition of the time frame needed for a product to decompose; moreover, a product can change shape but retain its chemical composition (e.g. biodegradable plastic bags).

What is OLA Bamboo floss made of?

OLA Bamboo biodegradable dental floss is made from mulberry floss, so there is no plastic in this natural product. The waxing is also natural. It is candelilla wax, which comes from a shrub. This vegan wax is often used in cosmetics and the pharmaceutical industry. The mint taste is due to the addition of mint essential oil. Moreover, the floss container is a small recyclable cardboard box; only the miniature metal knife should be put in the garbage.

Is the OLA Bamboo brand involved in its community?

Yes! The OLA Bamboo brand is owned by the Canadian company OLA Bamboo Inc., based in Quebec. This new company currently employs three people and aims to increase this number soon. In addition to job creation, our company is involved in and supports various environmental initiatives. Part of the sales of each OLA Bamboo toothbrush is used to plant trees in Quebec with CO2 Compensation. So far, nearly 2000 trees have been planted thanks to you.

    Floss is great but I am also impressed by the great packaging. The cardboard is strong and it’s good to know it is recyclable.

    THIS PRODUCT IS NOT VEGAN. Despite this page advertising the floss as “vegan waxed”, when I received it the packaging states that this is a silk floss. Nowhere on this page is silk mentioned. Product advertising is deceptive and I will not be purchasing anything from this company ever again.

      Hello Katelyn,
      Thank you for your comment. It’s a translation mistake and we are really sorry about that. Indeed, you should read in the fist line of product’s description that it is made of natural silk. It’ll be correct as soon as possible.
      We never wanted to misinformed anyone. The packaging was modified to take out the vegan wax mention in the front, we realized that is was confusing. The was is vegan, but the floss is made of natural silk, which isn’t.
      Again, we are sorry about that and we wish you a nice day

    I want so badly to love this floss. The flavour is good, it cleans well, and is eco-friendly. Unfortunately, the floss breaks every time I use it, without fail. I’ve never had this issue with other flosses. Make it stronger and it will be perfect.

      Hello Akira,
      Thanks for your comment. Natural silk can be less strong than plactic floss… Unfortunately it could break between tight teeth..
