Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrush - Kids - Arctic White
A White Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrush for Kids with painted handle and matching coloured BPA-free nylon bristles. The toothbrush comes in a recyclable or compostable cardboard box with zero plastic content.
Designed in England, made from biodegradable & sustainable bamboo in China (where it grows). The base is painted to avoid bedtime arguments and stop it going mouldy!
The bristles are made from BPA-free nylon - the vegan & effective option for cleaning teeth, which does not fully biodegrade. With the rest of the brush being plastic free, you are still buying a product with 95%+ less plastic than any mainstream toothbrush. Rest assured, we are researching plastic free alternatives, but it has to be genuinely eco-friendly, ethical and clean your teeth! These are coloured the same as the handle base, which again helps bathroom identification in a household that has gone 100% for bamboo! Adult toothbrushes are medium-bristled.
Rinsing the brush thoroughly then tapping it against your hand to remove excess water will improve performance & lifespan. Dentists recommend toothbrush replacement every 3 months (and who are we to argue).
Compostable or recyclable cardboard box, no plastic windows or coatings, just a box really… Like the rest of the product, it is completely vegan-friendly.
The nylon bristles can be extracted for recycling if your local centre takes it. The handles will break down and can go in with green garden waste, into wood recycling or be reused as a plant marker or similar.
There are approximately 3.5 billion toothbrushes used annually across the world and the vast majority of them are plastic, meaning they hang around for centuries. Strange to think the first ever plastic toothbrush is probably sat in a long forgotten waste tip somewhere waiting for a future equivalent of the fictional rubbish robot, Wall-E to discover it again.
