A bamboo toothbrush, with soft bristles. BPA free, fair traded and vegan friendly
The handle is made of MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo needs no pesticides or fertiliser to grow. It’s a super fast growing grass that is more efficient at taking CO2 from the air and producing more O2 than trees. This bamboo is cultivated for between three to five years, and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. In fact, by harvesting and using the bamboo, it helps to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas.
The bamboo is grown by many local farmers (not mass plantations).
The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
Because the Environmental Toothbrush, just like the Curantura toothbrushes do not come in a variety of fancy colours, you need to customise your toothbrush to differentiate yours from others in the household. We recommend writing your name, use a band or get painting!
It’s recommended you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.
Snap the head off the toothbrush to dispose of the bristles safely in landfill bin, unfortunately there are no compostable bristle options out there unless using animal hair. Use the handle as a plant name tag or compost.
Due to the treatment of the bamboo, there will be no mould or splitting on the bottom of your toothbrushes, although we would still recommend for you to keep them dry.
The bristles are made from a BPA FREE polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
