Choosing a bamboo toothbrush is a small but significant step towards creating a healthier planet, by reducing levels of plastic in landfill.
Made from bamboo, an abundant and environmentally sustainable timber, the handle of this toothbrush is completely biodegradable. A carbonisation process gives the handle durability, water resistance and a smooth finish, and prevents microbial growth during normal use.
The bristles are made from nylon - the only biodegradable toothbrush bristles currently available are made from animal hair, which is problematic for many people.While a completely biodegradable toothbrush would be ideal, surely it's better to be 99% compostable than 100% plastic?
These bristles are enhanced with charcoal, for improved cleaning, mouth odour control and tooth whitening. Charcoal reactive ion is claimed to provide superior adsorption of dental plaque.
Slightly firmer than the other toothbrush options, this brush is still gentle on teeth and gums.The MiEco Environmental Toothbrush is also available in Adult (Soft Bristles.
