Are there any biodegradable toothbrush bristles?

Brush with Bamboo uses the most advanced bio-based bristle in the world today. It’s bio-based, but still not biodegradable. Prior to the invention of nylon in the 1930s, pig hair was used for toothbrush bristles and is the only long lasting biodegradable option, but because it is an animal product we do not offer these toothbrushes.  Brush with Bamboo states: "We’re pushing bristle manufacturers to develop better alternatives to nylon. This new bristle that we are now using is the best available option. It’s not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction. Please beware of other companies selling “biodegradable bristles” – no such thing currently exists. Brush with Bamboo is an industry veteran in the field of toothbrush manufacturing. We are the longest existing bamboo toothbrush brand. If such a bristle really existed, we would have it."

Good product

I have used bamboo toothbrushes before and they felt unpleasant in the mouth. No issues or complaints with this one!
