Water-neutral production. Toothbrushes made of Bamboo.
Producing toothbrushes from bamboo may seem unusual at first, but bamboo is the perfect material for them. As a fast growing, natural raw material bamboo is an excellent alternative to commercial plastic brushes, and using bamboo would help stem the tide of household plastic garbage making its way to the oceans. In fact, you can decommission your old bamboo toothbrush on the compost heap or bury it in the garden. The handle will decompose after a year and a half. Simply break off the head from the handle and dispose of it with the normal household waste. The colouring for the handles and the blue bristles is based on vegetable oil.
World champion in durability.
Bamboo is the largest of the sweet grasses, and at the same time, the fastest growing plant on earth: some types manage to grow one metre in a day. More than a third of the species are native to China. The wood for these toothbrushes comes from there, where they are also processed. The cultivation of bamboo requires neither water nor fertiliser or pesticide because the plant itself possesses natural antibacterial substances. This is what makes it extraordinarily tough. Toothbrushes made of bamboo measure up to European hygienic standards and are highly suitable for oral hygiene.
