Aged Care

The Turtle Tribe partners with Aged Care

Would you like to meet your sustainability goals, minimise plastic waste, offer your residents the world’s best bamboo toothbrush, and create a ‘good news’ story for your company at little or no extra cost?

Since 2020 The Turtle Tribe has partnered with some of Australia’s leading aged care providers, supplying hundreds of aged care facilities in every state of Australia with bamboo toothbrushes.

This world-first, inter-generational collaboration is replacing over 80,000 plastic toothbrushes with bamboo ones every year.

The Turtle Tribe has a proven logistical track record of supplying large volumes of a quality product in zero-waste packaging and shipping, on time, every quarter, to multiple locations in every state, and at no extra cost above the previous plastic toothbrush supply. Now that’s something to smile about!

    • There are 50 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans?
    • 8 million more tonnes of plastic waste enter the ocean every year? (equivalent of a garbage truck full every minute!)
    • Scientists predict there’ll be more plastic in the ocean than fish by the year 2050?
    • Ocean plastics kill 1,000,000 seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals every year?
    • Plastic toothbrushes take 700+ years to break down, into micro and nano-plastics, killing marine life along the way.
    • Every plastic toothbrush you’ve ever used, is still in the world somewhere.

    Reducing plastic pollution is an important sustainability goal. We make it easy to switch from plastic to bamboo toothbrushes, with the highest quality bamboo toothbrushes at little or no additional cost over the plastic ones you’re using now, with the following features:

    • free delivery to all your facilities in Australia (for total orders>$1000).
    • convenient 12-packs, with each brush in a colour-coded, hygienically sealed paper sleeve, in totally plastic free packaging.
    • guaranteed supply every quarter, a different colour bristle for each season (Summer orange, Autumn green, Winter blue, Spring rose)
    • shipped early to each facility to arrive a minimum of 14 days prior to season changeover for residents
    • highest quality bamboo toothbrushes with EU certification of safety, and dentist-approved design
    • no child/slave labour

    The best bamboo toothbrushes in the world?

    I believe The Turtle Tribe bamboo toothbrushes are the best in the world. How can I claim this?  By researching the best features of every bamboo toothbrush brand in the world and making sure my brush has every single one. My mentors call it ‘modelling world’s best practice.” (It’s not rocket science!)

    • Heat-treated bamboo for improved moisture resistance
    • Candelilla-wax polished handle for a smooth mouth feel
    • Dentist-designed bristle head, for all ages and great for getting to back teeth
    • Only soft bristles, because that’s what dentists recommend
    • Coloured bristles for seasonal rotation
    • Tapered ‘floss-tipped’ bristles for best cleaning around gums
    • True zero-waste packaging
    • 10% of all profits go to ocean clean-up charity partners
    • All at a great value price!

    I challenge you to find another bamboo toothbrush that has all these features. Together, let’s make the world a little bit better. Email me today to discuss.
