Brand: Brush with Bamboo
Brush with Bamboo is the world’s first plant-based toothbrush. Every component of our product is plant-based: bristles, handle, and box.
Brush with Bamboo is a USDA Certified Biobased Product by United States Government’s Biopreferred Program. A purchase of our toothbrush is a vote for biobased products that are not fossil fuel-based.
All of our products are Verified BPA-Free, Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free and Non-toxic.
This special SOFT bristle is composed of 62% Castor Bean Oil, 38% nylon, and is made in the USA. This is the latest and most advanced biobased bristle in the world today. It’s biobased, but still not biodegradable. Prior to the invention of nylon in the 1930s, pig hair was used for toothbrush bristles worldwide. Today, pig hair remains the only biodegradable option – and it is a very controversial material. We hope you’ll support our brand as we “vote” with our supply chain. We’re pushing bristle manufacturers to develop better alternatives to nylon. This new bristle that we are now using is the best available option. It’s not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction. Please beware of other companies selling “biodegradable bristles” – no such thing currently exists. Brush with Bamboo is an industry veteran in the field of toothbrush manufacturing. We are the longest existing bamboo toothbrush brand. If such a bristle really existed, we would have it.
Store Your Brush in Dry Area
Bamboo is a natural material that keeps best when kept in a dry area. Enclosed toothbrush cups that collect water are not ideal. It’s best to keep your toothbrush in an open-air toothbrush holder or any other dry area.
Cleaning the Bristles
You can wash and care for our soft plant-based bristles just like a conventional toothbrush.
Your Bamboo Handle
Bamboo is natural woody material that will fade over time. The bamboo on the top portion of your toothbrush that goes in your mouth may begin to appear lighter and faded with use. This is normal! It will not affect your brushing experience.
Reuse or Compost Handle
The bare toothbrush handle can be disposed of in a commercial composting bin and will safely return to the soil within 6 months. Or you can compost it in your own home. However, the handle is a perfectly good piece of high quality bamboo – feel free to reuse it!
