Did you know the typical plastic toothbrush takes at least 500 years to degrade? That’s why we love our compostable bamboo toothbrushes!
These can be used for just as long as plastic toothbrushes. USDA Certified Biobased. Green American Certified. Vegan. BPA- Free. Natural and non-toxic.
How to Use: Add favorite toothpaste and brush as normal.
Ingredients: Soft bristles made from 100% castor bean oil. USDA certified 100% Biobased. Bristles made in Germany. The handle is made from organic bamboo. The box encasing the toothbrush is made from paper.
How to Dispose:
Every toothbrush is composed of three parts: a handle, bristles, and metal staples that are used to clamp the bristles to the handle. Metal staples are normal in toothbrush manufacturing and are also present in all plastic toothbrushes. The metal staples used in Brush with Bamboo toothbrushes are aluminum – aluminum staples are the most common type of staples found in any type of toothbrush worldwide. The USDA Certified 100% Biobased bristles and bamboo handle of the Brush with Bamboo toothbrush will eventually return to the soil.
If you would like to remove the aluminum staples from your toothbrush, you may remove the bristles from the head of the toothbrush – this will also remove the metal staples holding the bristles into the handle. Aluminum is not biodegradable; it is highly recyclable. 75% of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today.
The bare toothbrush handle can be disposed of in a commercial composting bin and will safely return to the soil within 6 months. Or you can compost it in your own home. However, the handle is a perfectly good piece of high quality bamboo – feel free to reuse it!
