Description
 
The hundreds of choices we make each day impact the environment. Sometimes itís a big decisionÖ sometimes it is as small as changing your toothbrush. Millions of toothbrushes are used and disposed of each year, contributing large amounts of waste to our landfills. The plastic they are made of will not break down in our lifetime, or within the lifetime of our children. Imagine that on a global scale. Invented by a Brisbane dentist,

The Environmental Toothbrush is a simple solution. Made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are 100% biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary either. Even the packaging is bio-degradable. Make the change to the Environmental Toothbrush today. Itís only natural.

The handle is made of bamboo, an environmentally sustainable material. Bamboo is technically considered a member of the grass family. It is the fastest growing plant on earth, and incredibly abundant. Our bamboo is cultivated for three years, and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. In fact, by harvesting and using the bamboo, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.

The bristles are made from a nylon 4 polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability. We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.

Disposing of your toothbrush: Dentists recommend that you replace your toothbrush every 1-3 months. The Environmental Toothbrush can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill.
Both the bamboo and bristles will biodegrade into soil, without pollution.
