One billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year in the United States, creating 50 million pounds of waste annually, ending up in our oceans and landfills!
Bamboo Toothbrush: This bamboo toothbrush handle is made from Moso bamboo, is biodegradable and can be composted. The bristles are medium firm and are made of nylon 6.
Bristles: While the natural colored nylon bristles cannot be composted, we recommend to put them inside a larger container or bag that you're putting in the trash or recycling, to ensure they don't fall out and end up in the environment.
Why Bamboo: Bamboo is an incredibly versatile raw material. It's long lasting, anti-bacterial, has a tensile strength stronger than steel, releases 35% more oxygen compared to trees, and can grow up to a staggering 30 meters within just 3 years! Bamboo will also biodegrade naturally over time. Bamboo naturally repels water, making for a great toothbrush.
Package-free: Each toothbrush is sold in a lightweight kraft paper box.
