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 : I bought the single toothbrush.
Comment : What a great idea, and also a very good toothbrush. I prefer a firm brush and was worried it would be too soft, but not at all. I am used to a small toothbrush head after years of using a round electric one, so the only adjustment is to the larger size and shape. I have, by the way, just ordered the box of 12. Great stuff.

Title : Best toothbrush I've ever bought!
Comment : When shopping for a new toothbrush, I knew I wanted something that was environmentally friendly. Stumbling across this toothbrush was a heaven sent! It stays in perfect condition even after being used extensively. Highly recommend getting yourself one of these!

Title : Great idea!
Comment : I use these all the time now, no more plastic handles. My dentist thinks they do a good job and they're nice to use. Best to keep the handle in a dry spot. I break off the head and put the handle in the compost.

Title : Love it!
Comment : I love this toothbrush! While initially I found the texture of the bamboo a little odd after a lifetime of using plastic toothbrushes, after only a few uses I no longer noticed the texture! It does a great job of cleaning and I feel good for making the change every time I use it. My husband loved it from the first use.

Title : Love it!
Comment : It's staying nicer for longer than the plastic ones I used to use, so right there that's a win. I think it has a better mouth feel too.

Title : Nice alternative
Comment : I really like the fact that these are compostable. Personally, I found that the medium was a little too hard for me, so I will need to order the soft next time. However, I bought another for my boyfriend and he thought it was perfect.

Title : Great way to reduce your plastic waste!
Comment : These toothbrushes are fantastic, even though they are not 100% biodegradable due to the bristles, they are definitely a step in the right direction. The medium bristles are the perfect durability whilst not being hard on your gums. We love these toothbrushes and they give us a pearly white smile every time we use them...

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.
