The Gondola Bamboo toothbrush idea was born after the family of the founder decided to change their lifestyle, consume unprocessed organic food and reduce the use of non-degradable or recyclable materials. Later, the family decided on a lifelong transition that emphasizes recycling and environmental protection. Then we realized that plastic recycling is not a solution to the crisis. Recycling plastic is costly and does not stop or decreases the plastic production. Over time we have set ourselves the goal of spreading the vision of a healthy and natural life while caring for the environment to our community.
