The Perfect Environmental Toothbrush
THE HANDLE is made of MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo is technically considered a member of the grass family. It is the fastest growing plant on earth, and incredibly abundant. Our 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, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. Our 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. The other main question we get asked is about the manufacture of the toothbrushes - YES our toothbrushes are fair trade.
HOW TO USE: We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean. The Environmental Toothbrush can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill. Both the bamboo and bristles will biodegrade into soil, without pollution.
