After Halloween, Celebrate National Brush Day Sustainably

October 25, 2017

What better time to celebrate National Brush Day than the day after Halloween—after you’ve eaten all of your trick-or-treat sweets? Join us on November 1st to reinforce the importance of children’s oral health and good tooth-brushing habits.


According to the American Dental Association, tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease in the United States. Brushing your teeth is the cornerstone of any good oral hygiene routine for both kids and adults. It’s recommended to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush.

Check out these other ways you can celebrate National Brush Day and erase that candy-coated guilt:

    • Make sure you move the brush back and forth, gently, in short strokes for two minutes.
    • Help your kids brush their entire mouth - front, back, and top of teeth!
    • Don’t forget to brush your tongue to remove germs and freshen breath!
    • Replace toothbrushes every three to four months, sooner if the bristles are worn out or if you’ve been sick. - MABLE makes it easy to replace your bamboo toothbrush with our MABLE Club subscription plan.

Head over to the 2 Min 2X campaign for more on how to maintain a healthy and sustainable smile!


MABLE’s Buy Give Teach Program

Mable giveback program, Buy Give Teach,

At MABLE, kids are an important part of our brand. That’s why we created our Buy Give Teach program. For every bamboo toothbrush you buy from us, we give one to a child here in the U.S. But we didn’t stop with just “the one-for-one approach”. We go school to school to teach kids about sustainable choices, personal health, and how products like our kids MABLE toothbrush ensure we don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.

How One Entrepreneur Packs Powerful Causes into her Backpacks

October 05, 2017 3 Comments

Danielle Magee describes her brand as having a focus on empowering women to “live like an ACE”. But what exactly does that mean? “An ACE is someone who spearheads their dreams with fear, but achieves them with courage,” she says. “Someone who has struggles but, despite the fears, decides to keep going.” ACE is also an acronym for Advocate, Create, and Empower. These form the three pillars on which ACE’s mission is built, and guide everything from the way the bags are produced to the beneficiaries of the company’s humanitarian work. ACE Backpacks will begin a Kickstarter campaign for their first backpack, “The Daniel”, this fall!
