More about this toothbrush -
Toothbrush Lifespan - Our ecological bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush. Please see care details on the Proper Care page.
Bamboo Handle - High quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of organic bamboo. Only wild, giant Moso Bamboo is used for these bamboo toothbrush handles. No pesticides or fertilizers are ever used on the bamboo – in fact, because it is wild mountain bamboo, doing so would be completely impossible. Likewise, the bamboo is never watered – only natural mountain rain. At present less than 1% of the possible bamboo harvest resources available are used in the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range where our supplier harvests bamboo.
Plant-based bristles - This special SOFT bristle is composed of 62% Castor Bean Oil, 38% nylon, and is made in the USA. This is the latest and most advanced biobased bristle in the world today. It’s biobased, but still not biodegradable. Prior to the invention of nylon in the 1930s, pig hair was used for toothbrush bristles worldwide. Today, pig hair remains the only biodegradable option – and it is a very controversial material. We hope you’ll support this brand as we “vote” with our supply chain. Brush with Bamboo is pushing bristle manufacturers to develop better alternatives to nylon. This new bristle that is now being used 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. They are the longest existing bamboo toothbrush brand. If such a bristle really existed, we would have it.
Compostable Packaging - The whole product is ecological, including the packaging. The outer box is made from 100% paper and is also biodegradable – no tape or glue is used.
True Sustainability - Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. Because it contains naturally-occurring antimicrobial agents, there is no need for using fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation. This bamboo is totally organic and wild. After the bamboo stalk is harvested to use for toothbrushes, another stalk takes its place and grows to full size within just 2 years — a remarkable growth rate!
Shipping practices - All Well Earth Goods products are packed in 100% recyclable paper based materials including recycled paper tape, recycled labels, recycled mailer envelopes and recycled paper for cushioning. No plastic is ever used, and the smallest boxes or envelopes possible are used to reduce materials.
