Plastic toothbrushes are not recyclable and usually end up in landfills. Even worse, they get into the ocean and harm marine life and pollute our beautiful beaches. This bamboo toothbrush is a fantastic alternative to plastic toothbrushes and once you try it you’ll never go back. The handle as well as the outer packaging are biodegradable. This toothbrush’s medium bristles are made from high quality nylon. Toothbrush bristles made of horse or pig hair often come from factory farms which contribute to climate change and animal abuse. We therefore support bamboo toothbrushes with nylon bristles instead and ask customers to please remove them responsibly before throwing your toothbrush away. More information on this below.
These flat handle bamboo toothbrushes have medium strength bristles and are made from sustainably grown MOSO bamboo. MOSO bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, which means germs avoid making a home in them. The head of this toothbrush is also a bit smaller than the shaped handle adult toothbrush so it is great for the smaller mouth and also more affordable.

Bamboo is fast-growing and a very sustainable material. A bamboo toothbrush is pretty, feels good in your hands and work just as well as regular toothbrushes.

Store your bamboo toothbrush in a dry place to ensure ideal longevity of the handle.
A bamboo toothbrush lasts just as long as an ordinary toothbrush. Once your toothbrush’s life span comes to an end, remove the bristles with pliers. See handy tips to remove your bristles here. The handle can be composted or used as a garden marker. The bristles can be added to an eco-brick. Read more about eco-bricks and drop-off points here.
