Call in to us to see why our customers love what we do!
The Filling Station Eco Store is a small local business in Galway City, owned by John Tedders. First opened in July of 2019, the shop has seen great success in its first few months in existence, with local galwegians loving the idea of being able to locally buy minimal waste dried groceries and eco-friendly household alternatives. Stocking a wide range of products, from dried fruit and nuts, to locally produced natural skincare and bamboo toothbrushes, the Filling Station Eco Store has you covered for all of your environmentally friendly needs!
This website is a work in progress, we are brand new to the world of online ordering so we hope that you can bear with us! We will eventually have all of the products we sell in store available online too, it will just take time. We hope that you enjoy the website and thank you for visiting!
Bambooth is an organic, natural product that has been made to return to the earth and biodegradable in every aspect that is possible, without sacrificing on quality. Because it is a natural product, it will last longer if it is dried after use and not left standing in water. Dentists recommend changing your toothbrush every 2-3 months.
The handle is made from panda-friendly moso bamboo which is antibacterial and 100% biodegradable. Once your bambooth has come to the end of its life, you have two options for disposal:
1. You can snap the head of your bambooth off and dispose of this in your regular bin while the handle can be put in your compost bin
OR (if you want to go the extra mile)
2. The bristles can easily be pulled out with a pliers and recycled as plastic by placing the bristles in a larger recyclable container such as a yoghurt pot. Once removed, your entire bambooth can them be popped in your compost bin.
Each bambooth colour supports a different type of ecosystem, with 10p per brush donated to these efforts:
Forest Green - The Jane Goodall Institute
Sea Blue - Plastic Oceans
Coral Pink - Coral Reef Alliance
Aqua Marine - Marine Conservation Society
Bambooth uses multi-length DuPont nylon bristles, which are the best in the industry so as not to compromise, on the quality of your dental care. There is currently no acceptable, biodegradable alternative to these on the market, but rest assured we will be working on this!
