I purchased a three pack, and couldn’t be happier! Such good quality for the price.
It's a pleasure to get in the easy, eco-friendly habit of using and reusing these instead of tearing off and later trashing sheet after sheet of plastic wrap or foil. We sent both our adult children a set of the purple ones, too.
I really love the handle of the toothbrush. It feels very stable in my hand. The bristles are nice and soft, but they don't fall apart in my mouth. It also gets my teeth really clean.
Toothbrush looks great and the handle feels good, however the bristles are pretty hard! I’d say they are more firm than my old plastic toothbrush which was labeled “medium”. Unfortunately, this brush does hurt my gums quite a bit. Also, I wish there was a different color option to avoid confusion with other members of the household. My husband’s has a charming piece of blue painters tape on his.
Everything I need in a toothbrush. I wish the bristles could be compostable, but it's still great to have a fully compostable bamboo handle. It feels nice in my hand, and I think that these toothbrushes actually last longer than "regular" plastic ones (at least, I haven't noticed the bristles starting to wear down yet like a plastic toothbrush's bristles would by this time. When do you REALLY need to replace a bamboo toothbrush, anyway?)
I've tired other bamboo toothbrushes but these are my favorite as of right now. The bristles stay in place, they are sturdy but not too hard that they hurt. I've noticed my teeth feeling extra clean. The handle is smooth and I'm not afraid of it splintering. Plus they are super affordable.
I wasn't sure how I would like a bamboo toothbrush, but I've been using it for a couple weeks and I love it! Won't be going back to plastics.
I received the package quickly since the outlet is in Seattle where I live. The brushes are a good quality but shorter than I expected. Overrall though, I'm happy with the experience.
I have been trying my best lately to be part of the zero waste movement and Eco Collective makes it pretty darn easy - I can find pretty much anything I "need" like these bamboo utensils! I got these for work so I would eliminate the amount of plastic utensils I use from the office kitchen. Although super convenient to mindlessly grab a plastic fork from the draw it is even more convenient to have a set of my own that only I am using.
They are easy to clean and work great if not better. I mean the spoon is a spoon but in my opinion the fork works way better at forking food than any plastic fork I've used. I have yet to use the knife or chop sticks but all in all a great products and your own carry pouch... yes !
I do temp work and often don't know what the kitchen setup is like at the offices I go to. Some offices don't have dishwashers and only can provide disposable utensils (which are compostable, but that still requires energy from transport). So these utensils are a zero waste lifesaver. They tuck away easily in my bag and now I'm always prepared for whatever lunch I bring or the much needed sushi run on days that aren't going so well. I like that these can get through TSA as well so I don't have to worry about forgetting them in my bag and having them confiscated.
Ive been having a hard time hydrating myself in quarantine, and a friend suggested I get a straw to trick myself into drinking more water (because apparently I'm a child lol). So instead of buying a pack of plastic ones, I bought 2 of these bad boys and I love them! Highly recommended
It’s hard for me to find bars of body soap that don’t leave a residue after I rinse off. This soap smells so good and I love how it exfoliates my skin. Definitely recommend!
I love trying bar soap from many local and small businesses & I love this bar. Beautiful presentation with the flowers on top, just like in the photo. Lathers very well, smells amazing but not too strong on the body afterwards. Been enjoying using it to shave with my ECO new safety razor!
In the past, I used liquid soap and am really happy I made the change to a beautiful, high quality, and sustainable alternative. The smell is nice and held its shape well, lasting us several months. It may be pricier than what I would normally spend, but well worth it.
I bought the eucalyptus & shea butter soap and it smells amazing! It's effective but not drying as a body soap. The corners/edges do make it a little difficult to apply to your body at first but I'm sure they will round off after a little more use. I can't wait to buy more!
The sweet orange + ginger is particularly great.
Love this product! I'll put a few drops of lavender or eucalyptus essential oils in each of these and it provides such a nice smell to our clothes without the added chemicals and dryer sheet waste! Thank you Eco Collective, these are great!
I have a front load dryer and using this helped reduce the static and I haven’t had to run the dryer twice so far for my normal loads. This is really great on for use on towels.
Works great, haven't seen any fuzz or shedding, doesn't she'll like burnt plastic like the, you know, plastic ones. Definitely heavier though, expect some thunking on light loads.
A lot of containers claim to be leak proof, but liquid still manages to slip out. This actually is leak proof. Highly recommend this for you food storage needs as we've had one for over two years and we can't tell a difference between it and the one we got more recently. These hold up really well over time.
