About the brush

USDA_Bio_logo_largeGreen_America_certifiedFDA Registered

Brush with Bamboo is the world’s first plant-based toothbrush. Every component of our product is plant-based: bristles, handle, and box.

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.

All of our products are Verified BPA-Free, Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free and Non-toxic.

 


Bamboo Handle

We’ve created a high quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of  bamboo. Only wild, giant Moso Bamboo is used for our bamboo toothbrush handles.  At present we are harvesting less than 1% of the possible bamboo resources available in the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range where our supplier harvests bamboo.


USDA Certified 100% Biobased Bristles

Our toothbrush bristles are 100% Castor Bean Oil and USDA Certified 100% Biobased – see the USDA Certification and Testing Paperwork here. This means that our bristles contain 0% fossil fuel. Our bristles are made in Germany. For further information regarding the decomposition process of these bristles, please read our FAQ page.



Compostable Packaging

We wanted our whole product to be ecological, including the packaging. The outer box is made from 100% paper and is also biodegradable – no tape or glue is used.


Toothbrush Lifespan

Our ecological bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush. Please see details on the Proper Care page.




True Sustainability

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. Our bamboo is totally organic and wild. After we harvest a bamboo stalk to use it for toothbrushes, another stalk takes its place and grows to full size within just 2 years — a remarkable growth rate!
