WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Plastic toothbrushes, generally every toothbrush in your house and in everyone's house. 3.5 billion plastic toothbrushes are sold worldwide each year, producing 50 million pounds of waste in the U.S. alone. When they don’t find their way to landfills, many end up in waterways and oceans where maritime animals will confuse them for food.
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF The bristles are said to be "luxuriously soft" however don't worry, they're neither too soft or too stiff, in our opinion.
Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial. After brushing, we recommend a thorough rinse with tap water. Shake it dry before storing to keep water from pooling on the handle, then store it upright in a rack or cup for proper air circulation.
INGREDIENTS Handle — sustainable bamboo. Bristles — BPA free nylon, allows for the highest standard of hygiene through the ADA’s recommended 3-4 months of use.
NOTE: We know bamboo and nylon may not sound great, however, the only non-bamboo wood alternative has boar bristles (yuck).
DISPOSAL The bamboo handle is 100% biodegradable; the nylon bristles are not. We recommend removing the bristles for residential composting. As a whole, the toothbrush is compostable in specific conditions usually offered in a controlled facility. We recommend contacting your local compost facility about eligible items or discarding your toothbrush with your household waste.
You could also find a second life for your toothbrush, such as: add it to your cleaning supplies to scrub with, use it on your dog, remove the bristles and use as kindling when you go camping, or whittle it into a sculpture.
