Disturbed by scenes of wildlife destroyed by the tons of indestructible plastic garbage disposed worldwide, we decided it was time to step up and offer a small way to begin to minimize the damage.
Our goal at KMH is to create new and innovative zero-waste dental products. We began with Brush with Bamboo™ Plant Based Bristle Toothbrushes, and continue with Flosspot™ our eco-friendly floss, and coming soon; Flosspot™ Gold our new plant-based vegan floss.

The short film Albatross, was very influential in our decision to pursue compostable and waste-free products. We are committed to doing what we can to reduce waste and save wildlife.
PlastICK toothbrushes that were produced in the late 1930’s are still on the planet today. They are washing up due to trade winds, after typhoons and natural disasters. We are assaulted daily with images of the devastation plastICK waste is creating for wildlife on Earth. “More waste than fish in the oceans by 2050,” according to BBC.
This was never the intent. PlastICK was invented for practical reasons, and recycled properly can be reused again and again. However, it is NOT being recycled properly. We have to start somewhere. Our Brush with Bamboo™ toothbrush is that start.
A Whopping 91% of Plastic Isn't Recycled
Our goal is to provide dental products that are eco-friendly, compostable and that have been awarded Certifications that are globally recognized. Flosspot™ jars can be reused and recycled along with all parts of the packaging. Stickers, bags and package windows are bio-based and will decompose. Brush with Bamboo™ toothbrushes are compostable but for a single staple required to hold the bristles in place. It’s our small part of minimizing the impact of waste on the world.
When the first decision of your day is to choose natural products (toothbrush, paste and floss). Like dominos, your decision not to ingest plastick throughout the day is reflected. Straws, cups and cutlery can be chosen in natural materials, such as glass, stainless steel or paper. Since the mouth is the entrance to the body, removing plaque before you sleep, (flossing) ensures non ingestion of that plaque while you sleep.
