Bamboo Toothbrush - Children's (Yellow)
A beautiful bamboo toothbrush with medium, plant based bristles. Bristles are white and are made from 62% castor oil and 38% nylon.
Bamboo is the perfect material for the Truthbrush as it is beautiful to look at, warm to touch and fully biodegradable. The natural antibacterial and antifungal properties of bamboo mean the Truthbrush is hygienic too. Bamboo is resistant to natural pests, which means it is farmed organically.
We recommend, based on advice from dentists, that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months (although we know the Truthbrush lasts much longer). After use, keep dry.
To dispose of your bamboo toothbrush, please place in your ordinary bin. Over time, all but the bristles will biodegrade, leaving no residue. Alternatively, you can pull out the bristles with a pair of pliers or snap the head off and either place the handle in the garden waste or home composting bin or, even better, re-use the Truthbrush in any creative way you can, plant canes and paint stirrers are just a couple of examples of how you can give your Truthbrush a second life !
To us: Delivered in boxes of ten, in 100% recyclable cardboard boxes.
To you: Each toothbrush is wrapped in 100% recyclable tissue paper, and a 100% recyclable cardboard tube.
Product Origin / Manufacture
The Truthbrush is designed in the UK, and responsibly made in China, the natural habitat of bamboo. They're made from ‘Moso’ bamboo, which grows up to a metre a day there as it has the perfect conditions to thrive. The bamboo used to make The Truthbrush comes from an FSC managed sustainable forest. The end of each Truthbrush is dipped in a coloured paint, which has been tested according to REACH legislation.
About The Truthbrush
The Truthbrush came from a wish for a toothbrush that was beautiful and luxurious as well as biodegradable. Combining their expertise as a hospital surgeon and a fashion buyer, Catherine and Catherine, founders of The Truthbrush, designed the Truthbrush to look beautiful in your home as well as being a great toothbrush.
Every year over a billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away worldwide, ending up in landfill, in the sea or washed up on a beach. Using a bamboo toothbrush with a biodegradable handle is a small change, but together we can make a big difference.
