The Environmental Toothbrush – Adult



These toothbrushes, by The Environmental Toothbrush, are simply designed and you can pick between soft and medium bristles.

Why I love this toothbrush:

  • The bristles are just the right size so that the toothbrush feels nice in your mouth when brushing your teeth.
  • The handle is made from MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber (although technically bamboo is a member of the grass family). The bamboo is grown by local farmers (not plantations) and is cultivated for between 3 – 5 years and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides.
  • The bristles are made from a BPA free nylon polymer, resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability. Please be aware that there is no such thing as a biodegradable bristle as they all contain a certain amount of nylon (unless made from pig/boar hair). The bristles can be recycled via Terracycle.
  • The handle is fully compostable and can return to the earth, either by landfill or in your compost. If you want to compost the handle, simply snap off the bristles and put the handle in your compost bin.
  • Packaged in a recyclable and compostable cardboard box.

Toothbrush Care:

Bamboo is a natural material that keeps best when kept in a dry area. Enclosed toothbrush cups that collect water are not ideal. It’s best to dry the handle after use and keep your toothbrush in an open-air toothbrush holder or any other dry area.

Replace every three months.

Rinse/ wash before use.

Bamboo is natural woody material that will fade over time. The bamboo on the top portion of your toothbrush that goes in your mouth may begin to appear lighter and faded with use. This is normal! It will not affect your brushing experience.
