Bambooth products come in four colours, each named after an ecosystem type – Sea Blue, Forest Green, Aquamarine, and Coral Pink. Each colour is partnered with an associated conservation effort, so for each Bambooth toothbrush sold, 10c goes to Plastic Oceans UK (Sea Blue), The Jane Goodhall Institute (Forest Green), The Marine Conservation Society (Aquamarine), or The Coral Reef Alliance (Coral Pink).
