Why We Love It: Brush with Bamboo Toothbrushes are made with FSC-certified bamboo handles and USDA-certified 100% bio-based bristles - no petroleum or synthetic materials here! Check out Brush With Bamboo's USDA Certification and Testing Paperwork.
Use/Care: After brushing, rinse the bristles to remove toothpaste reside or food debris and set the toothbrush out to dry. Avoid leaving the wooden handle sitting in water for the longest life. Replace every 3 months or when the bristles start to fray, like any toothbrush.
Packaging: Cardboard box may be home composted, commercially composted, or recycled.
End of Life: Remove the bristles from the handle with pliers (or snap off the toothbrush head to separate it from the main handle). Compost the handle commercially or at home. The bristles may be collected and returned to The Good Fill for recycling through Terracycle. While the bristles are made from 100% bio-based materials, bristles made from castor bean oil may not readily break down in a compost environment due to how they are processed.
Materials: Bamboo handle and 100% castor oil bristles.
