A child’s bamboo toothbrush is the perfect simple swap to start young people on their eco journey from a young age. This economical 12 pack will save you money and save carbon miles!
The Environmental Toothbrush is a nature-friendly 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 teach your child to rinse and dry their bamboo toothbrush after use to keep it clean.
Most dentists will only recommend a soft bristle brush for both adults and children. This child’s bamboo toothbrush is only available with soft bristles, however The Environmental Toothbrush is available in both soft and medium in the adult size.
Disposal: The packaging is biodegradable and can be composted. The 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.
