Did you know that in Australia alone we use about 30 million toothbrushes a year? This generates about 100 tonnes of landfill, and personally we can create about 4kgs of disposable toothbrush landfill per person, per year.
This shocking reality is rarely taken into consideration by the big oral care manufacturers of the world, however there is an alternative!
The Environmental Toothbrush is the original, bamboo handled, biodegradable and compostable toothbrush. It works exactly like any other toothbrush, lasts longer than most and is beautiful to use.
Bamboo is one of the earth’s most amazingly versatile and ecologically sustainable fibres. The Moso Bamboo found in our toothbrushes grows wild, up to 1meter per day, without the use of chemicals or fertilizers. Its large size means that it isn’t a food source for the endangered panda bear and its collection and processing into is fair trade.
Environmental Toothbrushes are packaged in 100% recycled and recyclable/compostable cardboard. This means that these toothbrushes create ZERO LANDFILL!
Environmental Toothbrushes are Australian designed an owned. They are made in China, however this is where the bamboo grows and is harvested.
The bristles are Nylon 4, a plastic which is biodegradable in soil. Simply compost, or bury your toothbrushes after you’ve finished using them, they also make great garden stakes to label vegies and herbs.
The Environmental Toothbrush was one of the first products ever stocked by Eco Pirates first, and are the inspiration behind our “Simple Swaps for Sustainability” ethos.
