The hundreds of choices we make each day impact the environment. Sometimes it's a big decision... Sometimes it's as small as changing your toothbrush.
Invented by a Australian dentist, the Environmental Toothbrush is a simple solution. The handle is made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are 100% vegan, biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. 100% biodegradable packaging (toothbrushes are individually sealed in cellulose and cardboard for hygiene purposes).
Available in soft, medium and one for children.
Now available Urtekram organic toothpaste!
For more information about the toothbrush, see 'Details' below.
The handle is made of MOS 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. The bamboo used is cultivated for between three to five years, and then harvested. It regenerates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. In fact, by harvesting and using the bamboo, this helps to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. The bamboo is grown by many local farmers (not plantation).
The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
The bristles are made from a BPA FREE polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
The bamboo will biodegrade into soil, without pollution.
We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean.
Replace after every few months or as advised by your dentist.
