A high quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of bamboo. Only organic, wild, giant Chinese Moso Bamboo is used for the bamboo toothbrush handle. No pesticides or fertilizers are ever used on this bamboo - in fact, because it is wild mountain bamboo, doing so would be completely impossible. Likewise, this bamboo is never watered by humans - only natural mountain rain. At present Brush With Bamboo are harvesting less than 1% of the possible bamboo resources available in the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range where this bamboo is harvested. Less plastic, more bamboo!
This special SOFT bristle is composed of 62% Castor Bean Oil, 38% plastic. This is the latest and most advanced bio-based bristle in the world today. It's bio-based, but still not biodegradable. You may have seen Dasani brand plastic water bottles made form 30% plants - these bristles are a similar concept. Brush With Bamboo are pushing bristle manufacturers to develop better alternatives to nylon. This new bristle is the best available option. It's not perfect, but it's a step in the right direction.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. Because it contains naturally-occurring antimicrobial agents, there is no need for using fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation. This bamboo is totally organic and wild. After it is harvested, another stalk takes its place and grows to full size within just 2 years - a remarkable growth rate!
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.
Disposal of the Toothbrush
The different parts of the toothbrush can be disassembled for proper disposal. The bristles are not biodegradable but could be recyclable in your city. Contact your city about the best way to recycle bristles. Using pliers, it is easy to remove the bristles from the head. Doing so will also remove a small metal staple that is used to clamp the bristles to the handle. The handle can be reused or disposed of in a commercial composting bin.
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. However, the handle is a perfectly good piece of high-quality bamboo - feel free to reuse it!
