Brush with Bamboo is a USDA Certified Biobased Product by United States Government’s Biopreferred Program. A purchase of our toothbrush is a vote for biobased products that are not fossil fuel-based!
We’ve created a high quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of bamboo. It has a natural feel in your hand and mouth, and gives a great look to any bathroom.
BPA-Free Soft Bristles
Our bristles are verified Free of BPA. Bristles are made from Nylon. Not biodegradable, but may be recycled. We use Nylon because there is no available plant-based option that would allow you to use your toothbrush for 2-4 months. The only biodegradable option is Boar/Pig hair, which we did not want to use. There are bamboo and pig hair toothbrushes on the market if you’d prefer to use those.
We wanted to our whole product to be ecological, including the packaging. The toothbrush comes in a compostable wrapper made from plants (Learn more about the wrapper in the FAQ link at the bottom left of this page). The outer box is made from 100% paper and is also biodegradable.
Our ecological bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush. Please see details on the Proper Care page of this website.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. Because it contains naturally-occurring antimicrobial agents, there is no need for using fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation.
