Made from MOSO bamboo, a plant cellulose fibre, this Bamboo Toothbrush handle will biodegrade in compost or the earth rather than landfill.

Invented by a Brisbane dentist, The Environmental Toothbrush is a simple solution to reducing the 30 million plastic toothbrushes that are used and disposed of each year in Australia. (Please note: hard plastics that are not containers such as toys and toothbrushes can not be recycled through standard household recycling programs.) 

*About the bristles: The bristles are made from Nylon 6 and thus this toothbrush is not 100% plastic free nor 100% biodegradable.  For those seeking a completely plastic-free brush, the only option is animal hair bristle. It is not possible to make a bristle from 100% bamboo or plant oil (there will be some amount of petrochemical binder).  Before composting, remove the bristles and place in your bin.

you are making a difference:

  • Bamboo is an abundant renewable timber that grows rapidly without the use of pesticides - far preferable than a plastic handle made from non-renewable, polluting petrochemicals.
  • Reduce the amount of non-biodegradable plastic entering landfills each year.  At the end of its life, the bamboo toothbrush handle will biodegrade into your garden soil or compost without pollution (first remove the bristles and place in bin).
  • Environmental Toothbrush is an Australian owned company with a commitment to sustainability.


  • Heat-treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo providing water-resistance and preventing the growth of microbes.
  • Bristles made from a synthetic Nylon 6 resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
  • Packaged in recycled cardboard box.

Available in three styles - adult soft, adult medium and child's soft, plus charcoal toothbrush bristles.

Title : Not a fan
Comment : Didn't really feel my teeth were clean after using these, think they felt too soft. I love the thought of them but didn't like the performance.

Title : Use for household cleaning also
Comment : Love this product. Once I find the bristles have worn a bit I keep them and use them for general household cleaning so I get an extra use from them.

Title : Excellent
Comment : Simple classic design does exactly as it's supposed to! Bristles are soft but plenty strong enough, last about 2 months with no mould or nasties in the handle as some people might worry. I agree with the other reviewers - once you use these you probably won't want to go back to plastic. So nice knowing you can keep clean with the help of a plant :)

Title : The Environmental Toothbrush
Comment : I found this toothbrush (Adult - soft) to be as effective as any other toothbrush you can buy at the supermarket. Found the bristles softened after a couple of months so their lifespan seems to be 3 months; when you're supposed to replace your toothbrush!

By Rod K. on 18 Nov. 2012 :

Title : Perfect!
Comment : Awesome product! Why would anyone want to use a plastic one? Quality of this is same if not better, last as long, classic design, nature friendly, perfect. And a light bamboo taste of a new brush just gives the reassurance you are doing the right thing.
