SUSTAINABLE TOOTHBRUSH AND TRAVEL CASE
This bamboo toothbrush and travel case set is the essential travel companion for the waste conscious. The case is perfect for storing your toothbrush when you are on the go as well as keeping it clean and hygienic. It is made from naturally antibacterial bamboo which helps to prevent bacteria and germs from breeding. So it is the ideal way to look after your toothbrush when you are traveling.
Our travel case also includes a small ventilation hole in the lid the prevent excess moisture from building up and to allow your toothbrush to dry out between uses. This will help to prevent your bamboo toothbrush from going mouldy and to prolong it’s lifespan leading to less toothbrushes getting used and less waste. If you would prefer to keep your toothbrush out of the case whilst you are staying away then our single toothbrush holders are ideal for travelling and the perfect partner to your toothbrush and travel case set.
INCLUDES A PREMIUM ADULT BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH
Each of our adult bamboo toothbrushes has a lifespan of approximately 3 months when cared for properly. They are the perfect alternative to plastic toothbrushes which create plastic pollution.
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 medium / firm 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.
If you don’t need the toothbrush then we also sell individual bamboo toothbrush travel cases as well.
TOOTHBRUSH AND TRAVEL CASE SET END OF LIFE
As bamboo is biodegradable, once your toothbrush travel case has reached the end of its lifespan, you can simply place it in the compost and it will biodegrade naturally. You can also 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 case has a diameter of 2.5cm and a length of 21cm making it compact and easy to carry. The toothbrush is 18.7cm in length.
