These nice bamboo toothbrushes help us avoid some of this nasty plastic litter.
Bamboo as a raw material has a high strength and grows extremely fast. Further, it has antibacterial characteristics which help avoid pesticides and fertilizer when growing it. In India alone 9 mio. hectares are covered with bamboo, a quarter of the worldwide area covered with bamboo.
The handle is made of moso bamboo, the bristles are made of bamboo and Nylon4, which is 100 % bio-degradable. The toothbrush is BPA-free.
The packaging is made of cardboard, for which vegan glue is used. The toothbrush itself is wrapped in a transparent packaging material which is made of plant fibres and is bio-degradable.
The bamboo toothbrushes are as durable as plastic toothbrushes. But it's important to store them at a dry and open place - not in wet glasses etc. You should replace the toothbrush after three months at the latest, or when the bristles are worn off.
It might happen quite fast that the bamboo fades, especially the part you'll have in your mouth. That's normal and there's no need to worry.
You can get super-soft, soft, medium or hard brushes, as well as soft toothbrushes for kids.
Please note: the bristles of the kids' toothbrush are cut even, all the other bristles in wave-shaped. The handle of the super-soft tooth brush has a new design (see photo)!
