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.

features:

  • 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.

Made in China.

Title : Great plastic alternative.
Comment : Love these toothbrushes, have the same firmness and action as a plastic toothbrush and without the plastic waste!

Title : Great product
Comment : We've been using these toothbrushes for years and have tried the soft and medium, and the plain and charcoal versions. Some in our family prefer the soft and some the medium. They are such a better choice than plastic alternatives. The handles feel lovely to the touch.

Title : Not quite there
Comment : I love that this toothbrush is made of as little plastic as possible, however I personally found the head too big to reach the back teeth. I prefer using the charcoal toothbrush (also available from Biome), which has a narrower head.

Title : Good but not firm enough for me
Comment : I like a medium toothbrush, and this brush wasn't as firm as the regular (plastic) brush I use - just felt like my teeth weren't clean afterwards. Really wanted them to be awesome too. Will try again if they bring out a firm brush.

Title : Great
Comment : I bought this for my partner. He really likes it, but says it feels larger than 'normal' toothbrushes you'd buy from a supermarket.

Title : Good value
Comment : These last just as long or longer than normal plastic toothbrushes, are just as hard-bristled (most of the other bamboo brands are too soft for me) and much better for your wallet and the environment! It's not too difficult to use pliers to take the bristles out and then you can compost the handle.

Title : Great alternative
Comment : I bought these to trial the feel of the toothbrushes before I went and purchased a whole box. This is probably too hard for my mouth, the first few times there was quite a bit of bleeding, so don't brush hard with these. I think I'll go for the soft brush next time.

Title : Great Toothbrush
Comment : That's it. I'm getting these from now on. They feel nice in your hand. The head is big enough with enough bristles. The bristles are just tough enough - and I can compost it when I'm done. Winning.

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!
