These bamboo toothbrushes are sustainable, BPA-free, organic and vegan friendly, with 100% recyclable bristles and plastic free packaging.
We have sourced them locally from the same supplier (Eco Bru) since 2018. ictured is the adult bamboo toothbrush (white) next to a children’s one, to demonstrate the size difference.
Conventional toothbrushes are made with a mix of complex plastics rendering them unrecyclable. They use virgin plastic and are usually created by dental companies who also test on animals. Bamboo brushes have a plant based handle and food grade nylon bristles. Plastic free bristles in brushes are still an ongoing development, due to non vegan materials often being the substitute- such as boar or badger hair.
The bristles are Nylon 4. Remove them and place them into the recycling when you’re finished with the brush, the rest is biodegradable. This means you can compost the handle.
