The handle is made of MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo is technically considered a member of the grass family. It is the fastest growing plant on earth, and incredibly abundant. Our bamboo is cultivated for between three to five years, and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. The bristles are made from a BPA FREE NYLON polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
Most dentists recommend a Soft toothbrush. It is recommended you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.
End of Life The Environmental Toothbrush handle can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost. The bamboo handle will biodegrade into soil without pollution. The nylon bristles are not compostable or recyclable so either break off the bristle head or pull the bristle out with pliers to remove it before composting the handle. It is best to store the bristle in a small container or bag to keep them from scattering and entering into the environment.
