Clean mouth. Clean conscience. Make the switch today! Every component of Brush With Bamboo's toothbrush is plant-based: bristles, handle, wrapper and box. Over 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes are produced every year worldwide, and yet plastic never biodegrades because it is not part of nature’s food chain. 

Features
  • Biodegradable, high quality handle made entirely out of bamboo
  • BPA-free, soft bristles made from 62% castor bean oil and nylon (there is no entirely plant-based option yet available that allows more than 1 month's use, with the exception of boar/pig hair)
  • Compostable packaging - wrapper made from plants and outer box made from 100% paper
  • 2-4 month lifespan, comparable to conventional plastic toothbrush longevity
  • Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth and does not require fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation
Care
Store your brush in a dry area in an open-air toothbrush holder or any other dry area. Enclosed toothbrush cups that collect water are not ideal. 
You can wash and care for the soft plant-based bristles just like a conventional toothbrush.
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.
With proper care, your 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.
Disposal
The different parts of the toothbrush can be disassembled for proper disposal:
  • The bristles are meant for landfill. They are not biodegradable due to the nylon component, and curbside recycling likely won't accept due to the bristles' small size. In total, this will result in less than 0.01 ounces of plastic waste, a dramatic improvement from plastic toothbrushes. Using pliers, it is easy to remove the bristles from the head. Doing so will also remove a small metal staple that is used to clamp the bristles to the handle.
  • The bare toothbrush handle can be disposed of in a commercial composting bin and will safely return to the soil within 6 months. However, the handle is a perfectly good piece of high quality bamboo – feel free to reuse it! 
  • The wrapper is home compostable to European and American standards. The outer box is biodegradable and recyclable.
