The hundreds of choices we make each day impact the environment. Sometimes it’s a big decision, sometimes it’s as small as changing your toothbrush. This economical 12 pack will save you money and save carbon miles!
The Environmental Toothbrush is a nature-friendly bamboo toothbrush with an affordable price! Invented by a Brisbane dentist looking for a simple eco-friendly solution to prevent the millions of plastic toothbrushes thrown into landfill each year.
The handle is made from sustainably grown MOSO bamboo, the amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary. The bamboo undergoes a carbonisation process giving it a quality finish and good service life, this provides water-resistance and prohibits microbial growth during normal use. The bristles are made from a BPA-free polymer (this is not a nylon-4) which is also resistant to microbial growth.
We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.
Although most dentists will only recommend a soft bristle brush we have found that approx 45% of Australians use a medium toothbrush… So The Environmental Toothbrush is available in both soft and medium bristles in the adult size and soft in the child size.
Disposal: The packaging is biodegradable and can be composted. The bamboo toothbrush can be put in a compost bin or kerbside greenwaste to biodegrade at the end of its life. Ideally the bristles are pulled out and thrown away separately as these don’t break down as well as the wood.
Manufactured under fair-trade conditions and not tested on animals.
Although dentists recommend replacing your toothbrush more frequently, The Environmental Toothbrush can last up to 8 months under normal usage conditions.
Also available individually if you just want to try one.
