A YEAR’S SUPPLY OF ADULT BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSHES
This set of four adult bamboo toothbrushes is enough to last a single adult up to a year with each toothbrush having a lifespan of approximately 3 months when cared for properly. The perfect alternative to plastic toothbrushes.
We’ve done a lot of research into toothbrush bristles and there is no perfect solution that is entirely eco-friendly. So we decided to give our premium toothbrush nylon 11 bristles made from castor oil. This means the bristles are plant based and are a bioplastic. They’re not biodegradable and they cannot be recycled. They should either be put in a waste bin or put in an eco brick.
These are a more sustainable alternative to nylon 4 bristles which, whilst they do biodegrade, will create microplastics that pollute our oceans.
Another alternative we hear about is bamboo charcoal bristles but unfortunately the reality is they are actually nylon, not true bamboo charcoal.
ADULT BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSHES END OF LIFE
At the end of its life you can compost the bamboo handle of the toothbrush but first you should remove the bristles using pliers. These should go in the waste bin or an eco brick. If your council does industrial composting they may take the bristles.
The toothbrush is 18.7cm in length. These adult bamboo toothbrushes fit all our bamboo toothbrush holders which are designed to prolong the life of your brush. We also have smaller brushes with soft bristles for children.
