Environmentally Friendly Bamboo Toothbrushes
This toothbrush is made from bamboo for a better environmental option. With a handle made from sustainable material that is 100% biodegradable you’ll be making a change that gives back to the earth.
The handle is made of MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo is technically considered a member of the grass family that is not only incredibly abundant but is the fastest growing plant on earth too. The bamboo is cultivated 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, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. The bamboo is grown by many local farmers (NOT PLANTATION).
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.
The bristles are made from a BPA FREE polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
Disposing of your toothbrush
The Environmental Toothbrush handle can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill. The bamboo handle will biodegrade into soil without pollution, I suggest that you remove the bristles so as to safely and properly allow the bamboo handle to biodegrade.
