Bamboo Environmental Toothbrush in a Child's Soft bristle available online at Flora & Fauna.
The Environmental Toothbrush is the solution to the 30 million toothbrushes disposed of each year in Australia. Invented by a Brisbane dentist, The Environmental Toothbrush is a simple solution. Made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary either. Even the packaging is biodegradable and they are fair trade.
What types are available?
That is an easy one to answer - Although most dentists will only recommend a SOFT bristle we have found that approx 45% of Australians use a Medium toothbrush... So the toothbrush is available in both Soft and Medium in the Adult size and Soft in the Child size.
The handle is made of MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo is technically considered a member of the grass family. It is the fastest growing plant on earth, and incredibly abundant. The bamboo is cultivated for between three to five years, and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. In fact, by harvesting and using the bamboo, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. Our bamboo is grown by many local farmers (NOT PLANTATION).
The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
The bristles are made from a BPA FREE polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.
The toothbrush can be put in a composter to biodegrade so you can return to earth. Ideally the bristles are pulled out and thrown away seperately as these don't break down as well as the wood.
Good product with room for improvementBy: Holly Withers on 19 July 2019This is a good product but design wise it would have been better if the head was smaller. The brush is essentially the same dimensions as an adult one just with a shorter handle when really for young children (our daughter is 2) you want a smaller head area for their mouths. Just some feedback to maybe take on board.
PerfectBy: Hana on 9 May 2019Perfect for my 2 year old. She loves that it looks like Mummy's toothbrush :) Again, just wish it was entirely compostable.
Great toothbrushesBy: Elsa on 1 May 2019I love these toothbrushes. I love that my family isn't creating unnecessary waste in using these, including the recyclable packaging. They are great quality and a good price
Great, guilt free but needs smoother handleBy: Zoe Yates on 11 March 2019Great quality simple minimal packaging and love the environmentally friendly. Store of this toothbrush. I only wish the handle was smoother or dipped in wax or some kind of coating to make it smoother to hold. I know I’m being a bit pedantic... otherwise it’s great
Kids love it.By: Emma Hately on 6 October 2018I think they are using it more with the idea of being able to put it in the compost when it’s done. It seems like a great toothbrush.
