Brush with Bamboo Toothbrush~ Kids
Brush with Bamboo is the world’s first plant-based toothbrush. Every component of the 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 their products are Verified BPA-Free, Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free and Non-toxic.
Organic Handle~ A high quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of organic bamboo. Only wild, giant Moso Bamboo is used for the bamboo toothbrush handles. No pesticides or fertilizers are ever used on the bamboo – in fact, because it is wild mountain bamboo, doing so would be completely impossible. Likewise, the bamboo is never watered – only natural mountain rain. At present they are harvesting less than 1% of the possible bamboo resources available in the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range where our supplier harvests bamboo.
Plant based Bristles~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 this brand as we “vote” with our supply chain. They are pushing bristle manufacturers to develop better alternatives to nylon. This new bristle that they 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. They are the longest existing bamboo toothbrush brand. If such a bristle really existed, they would have it.
Compostable Packaging~ They wanted the whole product to be ecological, including the packaging. The outer box is made from 100% paper and is also biodegradable – no tape or glue is used.
Toothbrush Lifespan~ An ecological bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush.
True Sustainability~ 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 harvesting a bamboo stalk to use it for toothbrushes, another stalk takes its place and grows to full size within just 2 years — a remarkable growth rate!
