Toothbrushes - an item the majority of us don’t want to go without. The average person will go through around 300 toothbrushes in their lifetime, that’s a lot of plastic waste. A bamboo toothbrush can be buried or composted at the end of its life, a plastic toothbrush almost always ends up in the garbage.
Materials: The brush handles are made from 100% biodegradable moso bamboo, the fastest growing plant on earth. Moso bamboo is also naturally anti-microbial, which is awesome for a toothbrush! The brushes are packaged in unbleached paper sleeves. The removable bristles are high-quality hygienic nylon.
These brushes are: Vegan-Friendly, Cruelty-Free, BPA Free, Use Non-Toxic Paints and are part of a sustainable future.
Pull nylon bristles out of the bamboo handle with a pair of pliers. Bristles go in the garbage and bamboo handle can be composted. There are some companies out there selling toothbrushes with natural bristles but they wear out in about three weeks so nylon bristles are still leading the market at this time. Instead of throwing out a whole toothbrush your waste is minimized to one square centimetre of nylon.
