In Australia, over 30 million toothbrushes are used and disposed of by Australians each year, amounting to approximately 1000 tonnes of landfill each year. The plastic they're made of won't break down in our lifetime. Nor 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.
- This product is Vegan.
Handle is made of bamboo, bristles are made from a polymer resistant to microbial growth.
How to dispose of it when the time comes:
Remove the bristles with a plier, keep them in a bag and bring it to our Hackney store for our Terracycle recycling programme. The handle can be composted or upcycled into a plant marker :)
