At SALT, we are always looking for ways that we can live more sustainably. With the arrival of the BKIND Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrush to our shelves, we got to thinking about how many plastic toothbrushes must end up in landfills. Too many!

An everyday toothbrush is made up of plastic, rubber, nylon, and other materials that are no friend to our environment. None of these materials break down, which means when they end up in our landfills, or in our oceans, they are there indefinitely, polluting our planet and endangering marine life.

We want to help you help us be part of the solution! For the month of November, any purchase of $100 or more will receive a free BKIND toothbrush! Plus, if you bring in your old plastic toothbrush, we will give you another one! In fact, we are encouraging anyone to bring in their plastic toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, and floss containers to add to our collection bins, no purchase necessary. We will be sending them away to TerraCycle to be broken down and properly recycled.

Shopping online? If all you want to purchase is a BKIND toothbrush, the shipping is on us!

Share with your friends and help us keep as many plastic toothbrushes out of landfills as we can! While we will be recycling the whole month, the promotion is only until quantities last. Visit us at our flagship store on Salt Spring and our Victoria pop-up for the whole month of November to do your part.
