More About Us
Our bamboo is sustainably sourced from small scale bamboo farmers and is FSC-certified.
Our packaging is made from sugarcane bagasse or recycled kraft paper.
More recently, people have been asking me “why juni?” I’ve always been a product person. The last product that our founding team all worked together on were ceramic water filters in Uganda. But even beyond that, I’ve always liked tangible goods that I can make and feel with my own hands, particularly those that can have a positive impact. Sometimes, I’ll look at products and wonder why they were made the way they were and wonder if there isn’t a better alternative - for example, toilets. Toilets use an INSANE amount of water, and I’m always on the lookout for a better alternative, somewhere between a pit latrine and your average household toilet.
Anyways, bringing it back to bamboo toothbrushes, I’m not a great environmentalist. I eat way more meat than I should and I subside on boba and yogurt drinks (probably why I need to brush my teeth so often). I try to draw the line at bottled water, but the thing is I still wish I was a better person. Perhaps the one good thing about COVID has been that it has significantly reduced my carbon footprint for this year since I don’t travel (sorry mom and dad). And juni makes this easy. I can at least be consistent about one thing, and I start off the morning by using a bamboo toothbrush. Not only that, between it’s grip, mouthfeel and sleek finish, the design makes it worthwhile too.
Our products are constantly being improved, and so are our processes - we are committed to bettering ourselves every step of the way. Because we control the manufacturing process, we are able to bring you better products every time. Our toothbrush is a 3 time design award winner and is made using a patented process that ensures that you get the water-resistant, sleek finish.
I’m really proud of our juni brushes. And for our starter kit, we wanted to continue the tradition and make sure that we were doing our best to keep our commitment to the earth while also making it the best product for people. For our packaging, we’re using kraft and earth pact paper. For our toothpaste, we’re using aluminum tubes with a wringer to help squeeze all the paste out. Our starter kit really introduces people to the world of sustainable oral care.
For you and the earth.
