Bamboo Toothbrush – Family Pack
To have you and your kids brush as eco-friendly as possible right away, this family pack of bamboo toothbrushes helps you out right away.
Do you want to have clean teeth and a clear conscience? Do you try to by brushing with a plastic toothbrush? Impossible. It is possible, though, by using a bamboo toothbrush. With a bamboo toothbrush, you also support a clean world.
We use millions of plastic toothbrushes every year. It is almost impossible to recycle those that end up in the trash. Even harder to deal with, are those that end up in nature. They remain there for several decades at least. By not doing anything about this, the damage only increases. Be aware and distance yourself from plastic. Switch to bamboo.
The bamboo toothbrush is almost entirely biodegradable. Only the bristles may not be disposed of with the organic waste, as they consist of nylon 610. So break off the head of the toothbrush and throw them with the residual waste.
Nylon 610 requires castor oil from the castor tree. Converting castor oil into nylon 610 is much more sustainable than the process of regular nylon – which requires petroleum – but unfortunately, it doesn’t result in 100% biodegradable bristles.
Like many of our products, our bamboo toothbrushes consist of bamboo. Bamboo is very sustainable for several reasons. For instance, it is the fastest-growing plant species on earth. The bamboo we use is called Moso bamboo, which can grow up to one meter per day in optimal conditions.
Another reason why bamboo is so incredibly sustainable is that large amounts of bamboo trees grow out of one rooting system. By only harvesting the bamboo trees that are at least five years old, the system remains intact and grows new bamboo trees.
Anyway, the most important is that, regardless of using bamboo as a material, The Bamboovement is no threat to pandas. They prefer eating the leaves low to the ground. The leaves of Moso bamboo grow too tall.
Besides, we ensure maximum sustainability concerning packaging and shipping material. We do so by shipping bamboo toothbrushes in a parcel made of recycled material.
