More reasons to smile for 'Grown Ups' too with this bamboo toothbrush. These have medium bristles and are available in six colours. They are:
- plastic free
- compostable and biodegradable
- made of natural bamboo
- packaged in cardboard
Made in China
The bristles are nylon but given there is currently one way to make bristles good enough for your teeth using natural products, by using either pig or badger hair, Nylon seems like the better alternative...
Since they are made with natural material, each of these brushes has it's own character with different patterns and markings. We quite like perfectly imperfect.
Bamboo is a great material to use because it's the fastest growing plant on the planet, it's a major oxygen producer and absorbs more CO2 than other plants. It's also a renewable resource (grown in China) and is compostable and biodegradable.
About Bamboo Club
3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes thrown away in the world every year and each and every one of those still remains on this planet! Bamboo Club are on a mission to change this with this range of bamboo toothbrushes. All of their products are vegan: there's no animal testing or animal parts. China is known as the Kingdom of Bamboo because it has the most bamboo of any country in the world and these products are made there.
Adults Medium Bamboo Toothbrush - Bamboo Club
Super-easy. It might feel a little strange on the first or second use but after that you probably won't even notice. Just make sure to place it somewhere dry between uses.
It's a little more expensive than the cheapest plastic alternatives you can buy, but if you can afford it, it's really a no-brainer.
This isn't rocket science or even close. It's just the same as a normal toothbrush so there's nothing stopping you.
It is recommended change your toothbrush every 2-3 months.
Once you have finished with this, you can pop the toothbrush handle itself into a compost bin and it will turn into soil after approximatley 6 months. If you are doing this you will need pliers to remove the nylon bristles, these can be recycled in the usual way you would recycle plastics.
Even if you don't compost this, it's still better than chucking a plastic one in the bin
