THE BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH SET PERFECT FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR
This family bamboo toothbrush set includes 2 adult toothbrushes and 2 child toothbrushes. It is perfect for a family of four and is enough to last approximately 3 months when cared for properly. The ideal sustainable alternative to plastic toothbrushes for your family.
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 bamboo toothbrushes 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.
The adult toothbrushes have medium / firm bristles whilst the child toothbrushes have soft bristles designed for sensitive mouths.
ADULT AND CHILD BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH SET 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 adult toothbrush is 18.7cm in length whilst the child toothbrush is 14.3cm in length. Both brushes fit our family bamboo toothbrush holder and individual holders which are designed to prolong the life of your brush. We also sell a family bamboo toothbrush set which includes 2 adult bamboo toothbrushes, 2 child bamboo toothbrushes and a bamboo toothbrush holder.
