Bamboo Toothbrush (Wavy) (Plant)
Did you know that nearly 4 billion toothbrushes are thrown out annually across the world, mostly to end up in a landfill? Plastic toothbrushes were first made in the 1930s, but they do not biodegrade and cannot be recycled.
Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource and can grow into a structural column within 3 years. The fully compostable handle of this toothbrush is made of 100% organic bamboo grown in India. Also, the chemical-free carbonisation production process prevents growth of microbes on the handle during usage.
The BPA free bristles are made of bio-nylon infused with activated charcoal. They absorb plaque, odour-causing bacteria and teeth-staining tannins, giving your teeth that extra bit of care.
It is recommended that you change your toothbrush every 2-3 months. You may see some discoloration of the handle in this duration, but that would not affect the quality of brushing.
It is also recommended to rinse and dry the brush after using and store it in a relatively dry space.
Please dispose the toothbrush along with your wet waste or add to your compost pit. The bio-polymer bristles are compostable to a large extent, but not a 100%; it would hence be ideal to pluck them out and add them to your dry waste/recycling basket.
