When did you hear about The Bamboo Brush Society?
On Instagram :)
What do you think of the Bamboo toothbrush?
I think that's the future. No more single use plastic. The most things that I see on the beach are straws and toothbrushes. I believe that everyone need to change their habits and use bamboo toothbrushes.

You have travelled a lot around the world, what is the best spot you have brushed your teeth yet?
Well I guess the best spot was watching the sunrise over Ayers Rock while traveling with my van in Australia.
What project you are working on this year are you most excited about?
I am planning a girls surf camp for the next year. I wanna encourage girls to believe in their skills and become better surfer. Better surfer means to have more fun in the water and support other girls in the lineup.
If you would be in charge of taking care of our beloved planet tomorrow? Which 4 persons would you pick to help you lead? (can be anyone in the world)
I guess I would pick my best friends. Because I would be able to work hand in hand with people that I care and we could create something even more bigger.
Tell us your best travel story?
A story told many times: I went with my best friend to Mentawaii (when there was no fast boat and not many land camps) to stay on a land camp. We wanted to learn how to surf but didn't know that we would be on a lonely island with scary reef breaks. After couple days my friend broke her nose on the reef and we needed to go back to the mainland. We were not better surfers but at least we had an adventure of our lives.
Any books, documentaries, films or series you lately watched and like to recommend?
Best docu: A Plastic Ocean
Share your best photo on your phone ! Make us laugh
Last question… What is the number one place you like to go travel to?
Hawaiiiiii !!! :)
