Over 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes that will never biodegrade are dumped in landfills and oceans every year worldwide. Founded on the belief that little changes can make a big difference for our health and the planet, Brush with Bamboo’s goal is to replace plastic toothbrushes with the ecological bamboo alternative.
It is critical for our society to vote against plastic. Purchasing an alternative like Brush with Bamboo is a vote for non toxic sustainable materials. Every piece of plastic ever created is still in existence. The plastic pollution crisis is so severe that 5 gyres of floating plastic, each the size of the United States, have swelled up in our oceans. Your support allows us to develop ever-better ecological options to help reduce plastic waste.
1. Store Your Brush in Dry Area
Bamboo is a natural material that keeps best when kept in a dry area. Enclosed toothbrush cups that collect water are not ideal. It’s best to keep your toothbrush in an open-air toothbrush holder or any other dry area.
2. Cleaning the Bristles
You can wash and care for our soft plant-based bristles just like a conventional toothbrush.
3. Your Bamboo Handle
Bamboo is natural woody material that will fade over time. The bamboo on the top portion of your toothbrush that goes in your mouth may begin to appear lighter and faded with use. This is normal! It will not affect your brushing experience.
4. Toothbrush Lifespan
With proper care, our ecological bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush. The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every 3 months, or when the bristles have frayed.
MORE ABOUT THE BRUSH:
1. Biodegradable Handle
We’ve created a high quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of bamboo. Only organic, wild, giant Chinese Moso Bamboo is used for our bamboo toothbrush handles. No pesticides or fertilizers are ever used on our bamboo – in fact, because it is wild mountain bamboo, doing so would be completely impossible. Likewise, our bamboo is never watered by us — only natural mountain rain. At present we are harvesting less than 1% of the possible bamboo resources available in the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range where our bamboo is harvested. Less plastic, more bamboo!
2. Plant-based bristles
This special SOFT bristle is composed of 62% Castor Bean Oil, 38% plastic. This is the latest and most advanced biobased bristle in the world today. It’s biobased, but still not biodegradable. You may have seen Dasani brand plastic water bottles made form 30% plants – our bristle is a similar concept. 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 our brand as we “vote” with our supply chain. We’re pushing bristle manufacturers to develop better alternatives to nylon. This new bristle that we are now using is the best available option. It’s not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction.
3. Compostable Packaging
We wanted to our whole product to be ecological, including the packaging. The toothbrush comes in a compostable wrapper made from plants. The outer box is made from 100% paper and is also biodegradable – no tape or glue is used.
4. 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. Our bamboo is totally organic and wild. After we harvest a bamboo stalk to use it for toothbrushes, another stalk takes its place and grows to full size within just 2 years — a remarkable growth rate!
