Your bambooth will last as long as a plastic toothbrush. Dental professionals recommend changing your toothbrush about every two to three months.
The bristles are made of BPA-free Nylon 4 – a synthetic material also used in plastic toothbrushes. This means that you can be confident that the head of your toothbrush is doing the exact same job as your old, plastic toothbrush! There are currently no available biodegradable bristles that aren’t made from animal products.
bambooth currently comes in a medium firmness. Dentists do not recommend firm bristles as they tend to damage gums.
bambooth’s handle will biodegrade and return to the earth within 6 months if placed in a private or commercial composting bin. Please remove the bristles before placing it here by either snapping off the head or using a pliers to pull the bristles out.The bristles can be recycled as plastics. Removing the bristles with a pliers will remove a tiny metal staple that is used to clamp the bristles to the handle. If you just throw your bambooth into the bin, the handle will also biodegrade in landfill over time
bambooth is made from a natural material which will last longer when kept dry (most toothbrushes prefer this anyway :). We recommend you dry it after use and store it in a dry place. Over time the wood may become lighter and fade- this will not affect the quality of brushing and will serve as a reminder that you have chosen a natural product for the sake of the planet- good job :)!
bambooth brushes are designed in the UK and are manufactured in China….where most of the worlds bamboo plants are found! Bamboo prefers tropical and subtropical regions 🙂
They do eat bamboo but not MOSO-bamboo which is what we use….phew 🙂
