About our Brush
Our brushed are made of 100% biodegradable handles, unlike most toothbrushes that use plastic. We use the highest quality bamboo for a comfortable handle that is easy to grip. Our bamboo is eco-friendly and has natural antimicrobial properties
As part of our commitment to the community and the environment not only is our brush biodegradable, but the packaging is as well. The box our brushes come in is both biodegradable and sustainable in lieu of using plastic packaging materials.
The Bamboo We Use
The bamboo used to make our brushes is grown naturally and harvested sustainably from the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range. It is grown without using pesticides or chemicals. The water that helps our bamboo grow doesn’t come from pumps, pipes or man made irrigation, but from nature itself in the form of clean mountain rain. Mao bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and can grow up to a meter each day.
The Life of Our Brushes
As long as you take proper care of your brush, our bamboo toothbrush will last as a long a plastic brush.
How to Care and Dispose of Your Brush
Keep it dry
Always store you brush in a dry area when you are not using it. Overtime the color of brush handle may change as it ages. This is normal as the bamboo is a natural material and can change color over time.
Keep it clean
After each use make sure to rinse your brush thoroughly and keep the bristles clean.
With proper care, your bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush. Dentists recommend replacing your toothbrush every three months, or when the bristles have frayed.
Never forget to replace your toothbrush again with our toothbrush subscription and automatically receive a new toothbrush in the mail every three months.
When it is time to throw away your toothbrush the handle can be composted. To compost your brush first snap the head of the brush off and dispose of it regularly. Place the remaining handle into a compost pile and within roughly six months the bamboo will decompose.
