These Bamboo Toothbrushes have a 100% biodegradable Mao bamboo handle (from the Zhejiang Province), which means they’re sustainable and panda-friendly.
What to expect…
Use it like a regular old toothbrush. Without harming the environment.
The bristles are made from recyclable nylon to ensure consistency in the functionality and performance of the brush. They come in fully recyclable cardboard packaging, which could also be used as a travel case.
When finished with your brush, be sure to remove the nylon bristles before composting the handle.
Made to Last…
The bamboo is heat-treated to carbonize its surface, giving it a quality finish and longer life, whilst also making them water resistant and preventing the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
Although like any other toothbrush, it’s best not to leave them in water and make sure to let them dry between uses.
Use them instead of…
Plastic toothbrushes - It is estimated that the average person will use 156 toothbrushes over their lifetime. Each one of those toothbrushes would take up to 500 years to decompose. And even then, it will have broken down into microplastics which are consumed by marine life and damage entire ecosystems.
Likewise, be wary of cheap bamboo toothbrushes found on Amazon. The tend to go mouldy very quickly and are often farmed from areas of China where the bamboo food source of pandas is jepardised.
