Eco-friendly Firm bristles compostable toothbrush with bamboo handle and BPA Free Nylon 4 Bristles.
The packaging is recyclable paper.
These brushes are made from genuine Panda friendly bamboo (with no fertilisers or pesticides).
I know the bristles are nylon but that is better than buying a full plastic toothbrush that will stay around forever.
Once the toothbrush is worn out, the bristles can be pulled out and placed in the kitchen waste bin and the handle can go in your home composting.
Or you can snap off the head of the toothbrush, throw this into the bin and place the used handle in your home composting.
If your compost is collected by the council then your toothbrush should decompose in about 1 month. If you compost at home in your garden then it will take about 4-6 months in the right conditions (if you can break up the handle into smaller pieces first).
The benefits of using bamboo made products:
Bamboo is reusable, compostable, biodegradable and lightweight.
It's a very sustainable plant.
It's durable and weathers well.
Textiles can also be made from bamboo, i.e. towels, sheets, clothing
Bamboo is an extremely earth-friendly material; it requires less water to grow, it does not require chemicals or fertilizers to cultivate, it captures more carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen when compared to a similar-sized stand of hardwood trees and bamboo can grow as fast as 3 feet per day.
It is a very versatile product!
