These elegant, ergonomic, eco-friendly bamboo toothbrushes from Bogobrush will give you plenty to smile about. Like TOMS Shoes, the company hosts a “buy one, give one” program, so for every handsome brush it sells, it sends another to dental patients and clinics in need. Read more about this young company’s efforts to spread good health at www.bogobrush.com. $10 per brush, or $40 for a one-year subscription.
GrabGreen makes toxin-free, eco-friendly laundry products with a minimalist bent. The 3-in-1 product combines detergent, fabric softener and stain remover in a tiny, water-soluble pod for truly clean clothes. $8-$19 at www.grabgreenhome.com.
They taste a bit sudsy for some, but these highly concentrated glycerin and SLS-free tooth soaps, made of essential oils and food-grade ingredients, leave chompers squeaky clean. They also protect gums from irritation and are great for sensitive teeth. $18-$25. www.toothsoap.com.
The shapely, showoffable glass carafe from Soma would be enough to celebrate by itself, but its real selling point is the compostable water filter fitted in the top cone. What’s more, the company sends a fresh filter in the ail every second month to spare you the task of recalling when you last changed it. Check pricing for pitcher and six-month filter subscription at www.somawater.co.
Carolina Morning Designs’ tilted-seat chair encourages “active sitting,” engaging muscles to make continuous postural micro-adjustments to help prevent the slew of problems associated with prolonged sitting. Also, it’s constructed from recycled wood and contains zero VOC chemicals. $148 from www.zafu.net.
