The creator of this bamboo toothbrush is taking advantage of the accessible opportunity to make everyday objects more eco-friendly. Yumaki has a line of bristled tooth cleaners that resemble this particular product; however, it's shifted away from plastic in this case to a wonderfully renewable woody grass.

The same shape is recreated here, featuring the added detail of a natural grainy texture. While the material is certainly strong enough for its particular purpose, the designer has embedded a strip of undulating metal that runs along the middle of the bamboo toothbrush. With neon green bristles, this polisher of pearly whites gets points for flashy style as well as environmental sensitivity. Designers should take note that this combination is underrated and underrepresented in the market thus far.
