Across the planet, trees are being destroyed at an alarming rate. We can all do our part to help stop deforestation by making the right choices every day. We know swapping your toothbrush for a sustainable one is just one way of reducing your environmental impact. But hey, we all need to start somewhere. To further combat deforestation, we send our profits to World Land Trust to help them on their mission to protect our forests.
We Wish For More Trees
How can we combat
World Land Trust
World Land Trust works with partner organisations across the world to help fund land purchase and create nature reserves to protect threatened habitats and wildlife. Each Tarzan toothbrush will contribute to Buy an Acre programme and help buy 23m2 of rainforest to create permanently protected nature reserves across the world.
Buy an Acre funds are currently supporting land purchase in Mexico to save and protect ancient forest habitat for vulnerable wildlife. These forests are home to a rich diversity of Central American wildlife, from one of the world’s smallest birds, the Bumblebee Hummingbird, to six cat species including Jaguar and Puma and several rare and threatened amphibian species. Without protection, the forests of Sierra Gorda in Central Mexico are threatened by deforestation for agriculture, cattle ranching and manmade fires.
You have a great taste in design and make conscious decisions about the products you buy. You care about the environment and are trying to reduce your plastic footprint without compromising your lifestyle. Forest conservation is important to you and that’s why Tarzan is just the perfect toothbrush for you.
Tarzan was designed by Samuel Humphreys to help combat deforestation by contributing to the Buy an Acre programme. His simple yet elegant body is made from sustainable bamboo, a biodegradable and sustainable material. His soft green bristles are made from 100% biodegradable Nylon 4. Freshen up your daily hygiene with some forest breeze and enjoy this little piece of art every time you brush your teeth.
Designed by Samuel Humphreys
Samuel Humphreys was born in the city of Melbourne, Australia and has since made The Wet Tropics of Queensland his home. He was first exposed as an illustrator at the age of thirteen by a suburban English teacher unimpressed by his ability to draw anatomically accurate parts of the human anatomy. Since then he has been refining his penmanship to draw more imaginative illustrations that are guided by unrestricted thought. The subject matter he holds dearest is fundamental to our existence—the natural world.
With environmental ethics in mind he incorporates artistry and conservation by donating regularly to the World Land Trust’s ‘Save an Acre‘ campaign or CNCF’s ‘Tree Planting Projects‘. Possessing the imagination of the early Surrealists, the precision of 16th century engravers and the poetic reality of David Attenborough, Samuel creates work that is of great importance to those who have the audacity to desire.
