Every part of Brush with Bamboo's toothbrush is plant-based: bristles, handle, and box.
The handle is made from Certified 100% Organic Bamboo, Soft bristles are made from a base of castor bean oil, and the Box encasing the toothbrush is made from paper no tape or glue is used.
The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every 3 months, or when the bristles have frayed.
Proper Disposal: The different parts of the toothbrush can be disassembled for proper disposal. The bristles are not biodegradable. All toothbrush bristles are very small and lightweight therefore the bristles will have to be landfilled. In total, this will result in less than 0.01 ounces of plastic waste (a dramatic improvement from plastic toothbrushes). 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. This metal staple is normal in toothbrush manufacturing and is also present in all plastic toothbrushes. The handle can be upcycled or composted at home.
