Child toothbrush made out of bamboo and 100% biodegradable. Because even small decisions like choosing your toothbrush impact on the environment.
Children always get excited about receiving their first toothbrush so this beautiful, environmentally-friendly one is the perfect present for tiny teeth.
Invented by a Australian dentist, the Environmental Toothbrush is a simple solution. Made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are 100% biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment.
The handle is made out of bamboo. The bristles are made from a natural polymer (cellulose based) resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability.
The Environmental Toothbrush can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill. Both the bamboo and bristles will biodegrade into soil, without pollution.
100% biodegradable packaging (toothbrushes are individually sealed in cellulose and cardboard for hygiene purposes).
Designed in Australia and Created in China.

We love it because...
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.
