Biodegradable & Sustainable Bamboo Toothbrush (children's)NSM010
Environmentally friendly alternative to plastic toothbrushes. There are approximately 3.5 billion toothbrushes used annually across the world and the vast majority of them are plastic, meaning they hang around for centuries. This little brush helps you to cut down on plastic waste whilst keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy.
These bamboo handled toothbrushes come in a range colours with painted handles and matching coloured BPA-free nylon bristles. They also come in a recyclable or compostable cardboard box with zero plastic content.
About the toothbrushes
Handle: Designed in England, made from biodegradable and sustainable bamboo in China (where it grows). The bases are painted different colours to avoid bedtime arguments and stop it going mouldy!
Bristles: BPA-free nylon - a vegan and effective option for cleaning teeth. With the rest of the brush being plastic free, you are still buying a product with 95%+ less plastic than any mainstream toothbrush. The manufacturers are researching plastic free alternatives. These are coloured the same as the handle base, which again helps bathroom identification in a household that has gone 100% for bamboo! Children's toothbrushes are soft-bristled.
Brush care: Rinsing the brush thoroughly then tapping it against your hand to remove excess water will improve performance and lifespan. Dentists recommend toothbrush replacement every three months.
The box: Compostable or recyclable cardboard box, no plastic windows or coatings. Like the rest of the product, it is completely vegan.
Disposal: The nylon bristles can be extracted for recycling if your local centre takes it. The handles will break down and can go in with green garden waste, into wood recycling or be reused as a plant marker or similar.
