Ditch Plastic:

Plastic toothbrushes are an environmental disaster. They are made from plastic which is usually not recyclable, take up to a thousand years to break down, and 80% of the estimated 3.6 million used worldwide per year end up in the sea where they pose a real threat to marine life and habitats!

Enter- The Bamboo Brush

Made with sustainable and biodegradable/compostable Mao bamboo handles and BPA free soft Nylon bristles, our very own Greener Habits Bamboo Toothbrushes are the perfect solution to planet polluting plastic brushes. We are estimated to use 300 toothbrushes in our lifetime, so this switch really will make a big difference!

The Handle:

The handles are made from Mao bamboo- the fastest growing woody plant on the planet. Its an Eco-friendly and naturally sustainable material which grows spontaneously without the need for pesticides, and has a fast regrowth cycle- much much faster than wood.

All of our bamboo toothbrush handles are heat treated to carbonise them. This process gives them a lovely quality finish, but also makes our brushes water-resistant, which helps to prevent the growth of microbes (bacteria and mold).

We chose an ergonomic shape for all of our brushes, as this lets you grip it securely and retain control over your brushing technique.

We also decided to make our brushes with slightly shorter handles than most of the brushes you will be used to, as this means less bamboo is used, and it makes for a super lightweight handle too. Our brush head is also more petite, making it far easier to brush right at the back of your molars. Your dentist will thank you.

And don’t worry about the Pandas, they don’t eat this type of bamboo, so won’t go hungry if you use one of these brushes.

The Bristles:

All of our bristles are soft BPA free Nylon, and come in array of colours- which is very helpful if you live in a family or shared accommodation. Plus, who doesn’t love a splash of colour?

The bristles need to be removed before composting the handle, which is very easy to do.

Packaging:

Each toothbrush comes in a recycled cardboard box which is fully recyclable. There is no single wrapper on the brushes, to save unnecessary waste. If you would prefer no box at all, just let us know, and we will pop your brush in the travel case which comes in this set instead.

Bamboo Toothbrush Travel Case:

This set comes with a bamboo toothbrush travel case too, which like our toothbrushes are made from Mao bamboo, and heat treated to carbonise them. This case is super lightweight, and is the perfect travel companion for your bamboo toothbrush, keeping it safe from stray hairs and fluff on the go.

There is also a small hole in the lid and the bottom of the case, to help air circulate in to stop your toothbrush from smelling/going moldy.

Who made your brush?

At Greener Habits we only stock products which are planet, animal and people friendly. This also means making sure the people who make our products are paid fairly and treated well. Our toothbrushes are ethically made in a family run business in China which employs 50 people. They are paid a very fair wage, 25RMB per hour during the day, and 35 RMB per our during the night (I have been informed this is very fair in China), and work in a clean and safe environment. To see pictures of the production factory see product pics.
