Are you wanting to ditch the plastic?
Well we have the perfect option for you in our beautifully designed children bamboo toothbrush.
Our comfortable rounded handles feel nice in the palm. Whilst our soft bristles take care of your children’s teeth and gums.
Why using a bamboo toothbrush?
- Because discarded plastic toothbrushes stay in the environment for ever. It’s estimated they take up to 500 years to decompose.
- Because they are not easily recyclable as they are made with a combination of plastic and rubber for the hand piece, and nylon for the bristles.
Australians discard over 30 million toothbrushes every year, which corresponds to 1,000 tonnes of landfill each year.
In the US, these numbers go up to 850 million every year. Can you imagine globally?
Bamboo is a renewable resource compared to other raw materials as it grows so quickly.
End of Life:
When your children bamboo toothbrush is ready to be disposed of, just snap off the handle and place it in your compost bin, while you place the head with the bristles in the rubbish bin. If you are patient enough, you can remove the nylon bristles with plyers step by step.
