100% Biodegradable MOS Bamboo handle and biodegradable BPA FREE polymer bristles.

Bamboo is a natural renewable grass which absorbs carbon during its growth period. It breaks down slowly into the soil allowing for atmospheric carbon to be trapped in the earth where it belongs. Bamboo production avoids the need for mass deforestation as it is the fastest growing plant on earth, yielding a high volume of wood and other materials including natural cellulose fibre.

Once harvested, bamboo renews quickly, with little water and without harmful pesticides. 

Bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface to create a water resistant quality and to prevent the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.

Support Sustainable Agriculture: Use a biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrush.


The handle:
The handle is made of MOS bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo is technically considered a member of the grass family. It is the fastest growing plant on earth, and incredibly abundant. Our bamboo is cultivated for between three to five years, and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. In fact, by harvesting and using the bamboo, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. Our bamboo is grown by many local farmers (NOT PLANTATION).
 
The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.

The bristles:
The bristles are made from a BPA FREE polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.

We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.

Disposing of your toothbrush:
For best results, most dentist's recommend you replace your toothbrush either monthly or at least every quarter some even say use it until it stops.
To answer the main question, HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? - We test drove a toothbrush for over 8 months so yes they last (not that we suggest you do that).

The Environmental Toothbrush can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill. Both the bamboo and bristles will biodegrade into soil, without pollution. It will break down between 6 months to 2 years: compared to 100 years for plastic.


The Environmental Toothbrush panda:
China’s Giant Panda consumes the soft bamboo shoots, stems and leaves as its main food source. The Environmental Toothbrush honours this environmental mascot in our logo. Because bamboo is so abundant, sustainable and renewable our use does not impact on the food source of the Giant Panda in fact they do not like the MOSO bamboo.


Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrush (1x, Medium Adult bristles) by The Environmental Toothbrush.

It is estimated that 700 million toothbrushes are manufactured every year. These brushes are destined for landfill, waterways or the oceans.

The first toothbrushes used were made of bone, bamboo or wood. This changed during WWII when plastic alternatives were created due to the shortages of natural materials.

These plastic brushes are still around polluting the soil and our environment and will continue to pollute for the next 100 years after production.
