Bamboo Toothbrush

Most important questions, quick acces:

1. Why choose a bamboo toothbrush over a plastic one?

Our bamboo toothbrush is made from sustainably grown bamboo, which is the world’s fastest-growing plant. Bamboo is a renewable resource, making our toothbrush an eco-friendly alternative to plastic ones. This renewable resource addresses the plastic pollution problem, providing an eco-friendly alternative for conscious consumers. By choosing bamboo over plastic, you actively contribute to reducing the environmental impact of single-use plastics. In short, making the switch to our bamboo toothbrush actively helps protect the environment from the harmful effects of plastic.

2. Why bamboo?

Bamboo stands out as our primary material for a compelling reason! It is the fastest-growing plant on earth. Unlike trees that take around 30 years to grow, bamboo reaches its full size in just 3-4 months and doesn't need replanting — it self-regenerates. Choosing bamboo means embracing a renewable resource that grows swiftly without the use of harmful pesticides or chemicals. So, why bamboo? Because bamboo is a sustainable material and choice that aligns with our commitment to both quality and environmental responsibility

3. Are the bristles of the bamboo toothbrush antibacterial?

Yes, the bristles are made from Tynex 612, which is naturally antibacterial. This feature helps maintain oral hygiene by inhibiting the growth of bacteria on the toothbrush. The antibacterial properties also contribute to the longevity of the toothbrush, promoting a more hygienic oral care routine.

4. Are the bamboo toothbrushes dentist-approved?

Absolutely! Our bamboo toothbrushes are dentist-approved, ensuring that they meet the necessary standards for effective oral care.

5. What are the dimensions and available sizes of the bamboo toothbrush?

The adult bamboo toothbrush measures 19cm, while the kids' version is 15cm. The dimensions are 267mm x 70mm, providing a comfortable grip for easy use.

6. Is the bamboo toothbrush suitable for children?

Absolutely! We offer a kids' size with dimensions of 15cm, providing a comfortable and effective brushing experience for younger users. The child-friendly design promotes oral hygiene habits from an early age, and the vibrant colours make brushing fun.

7. How is the packaging of the bamboo toothbrush environmentally friendly?

Our bamboo toothbrushes come in stone paper envelopes, promoting paper recycling and reducing the environmental impact of packaging. Stone paper is an innovative and sustainable material made from limestone waste, requiring fewer natural resources and producing fewer emissions compared to traditional paper production. By opting for stone paper, we strive to make every aspect of our product, including its packaging, a positive contribution to a greener planet. No need to produce or waste any more plastic on your dental hygiene!

8. How and where is the bamboo toothbrush produced?

The bamboo toothbrushes are manufactured in the Toothbrush and Straw Factory. The handle is made from sustainably grown bamboo, and the entire production process is designed to be environmentally conscious.

9. Is the bamboo toothbrush biodegradable?

Yes, the handle of our bamboo toothbrush is compostable. After its useful life, it can be disposed of in compost, returning to nature without leaving a lasting environmental impact.

10. How to recycle your bamboo toothbrush?

It’s pretty simple and easy to do! The handle is 100% compostable, and the bristles can be disposed of in waste-to-energy or plastic recycling. We are continually working to improve the product's life cycle to make it a part of a sustainable agood loop™.

11. How to apply your bamboo electric toothbrush head?

Thanks to the fact that this beauty you ordered is made from natural materials, each individual toothbrush head may differ a teeny tiny bit. The easy solution is that the very first time you use the toothbrush head, go ahead and use some force to expand the material and make sure the head fits perfectly on the electronic toothbrush.

12. What is the social impact of purchasing our bamboo toothbrush?

With each dental product sold, we donate another toothbrush to those in need through our partnership with the charity Global First Responder. Together, our goal is to provide toothbrushes to improve oral hygiene in communities that lack access to essential dental products. We recognise the critical importance of oral hygiene in overall health, and unfortunately, not everyone has access to essential dental products. By choosing our bamboo toothbrush, you become a part of this meaningful effort, making a positive impact beyond your personal oral care routine. Together, we strive to bridge the gap and contribute to better dental health for those who need it most.

13. Is the bamboo toothbrush a part of a circular economy or recycling program?

While the toothbrush is not yet a part of a circular economy, the handle and bristles can have a second life as a cleaning utensil before composting and proper disposal, contributing to a more sustainable lifestyle.
