Bamboo Environmental Toothbrush in a 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.
Converted skepticBy: Sharon on 9 July 2018I was sceptical about a bamboo toothbrush. Granted it takes a little getting used to, but that's only because plastic has become a norm. It's a little like using a paddle-pop stick. I am a converted skeptic and will definitely only buy bamboo toothbrushes from now on. Next time I will stick with the same bristle strength of my plastic toothbrush. The soft bristles are too soft when I am used to a medium. I would recommend this product.
Easy to swap into daily routine!By: Anonymous on 29 May 2018I love using a bamboo toothbrush and have tried a few different ones. The soft bristles are really nice on this brush and the handle is very smooth. Would recommend to someone wanting an easy way to be a bit greener!
Love it!By: Anonymous on 25 May 2018This is the first bamboo toothbrush I have owned and I love it, I definitely won't be going back to plastic. The bristles are soft and it feels like it's cleaning my teeth really well. The toothbrush feels sturdy in my hand and is a good size. I wish I had switched over earlier.
Going back to plasticBy: Anonymous on 16 May 2018I gave it a try for a month but it just doesn't clean my teeth as well as traditional toothbrushes. I'm sadly going back to plastic :(
