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.

I like it, but not everyone does

I like this toothbrush, but have a hard time getting my kids and partner to use the bamboo brushes because it has a rougher texture than a plastic brush. The head is a little larger than normal and stiffer bristles than my normal plastic brush, but I quite like that.
I have also found that the bristles sometimes come out of the brush.
But overall, the benefits definitely outweigh the downsides.

Perfect alternative to plastic!

I love these toothbrushes! They are reasonably priced and a great switch from plastic! The bamboo doesn't go soggy and they last the same amount of time if not longer than plastic toothbrushes. I still use them for cleaning purposes when stopped using as a toothbrush. These are great!

Medium is very hard

I bought a carton of medium toothbrushes. They are way too firm, and don't soften at all over a few weeks. A lot firmer than any regular plastic toothbrushes.

The toothbrush itself is fine, just the firmness of the bristles should be rated firm.
