The Waste Less Shop’s bamboo toothbrush with soft charcoal bristles is an environmentally friendly, zero-waste staple for your daily dental routine.
Biodegradable and anti-bacterial bamboo handle with soft nylon charcoal fibre bristles.
Wet bamboo toothbrush bristles and dip into our toothpaste powder or use a pea-sized amount of your favorite toothpaste. Place your bristles at a 45 degree angle into the gum line and gently brush in small circles along all surfaces of the teeth. Angle brush vertically for the back-side of your front teeth. Replace your toothbrush every 3 months or when the bristles begin to fray. And don’t forget to visit your dentist for maintenance cleanings.
Recyclable and biodegradable kraft paper box.
Please compost or re-purpose your toothbrush handle after use, I like to make garden markers from mine! Our bristles are NOT biodegradable, remove them with pliers before composting handle! Please collect your used bristles in a jar until proper recycling is available. Recycle or compost the paper box.
*We tested plant-based bristles and decided that due to the short lifespan (degrades in 1 month) that the environmental impact of nylon fiber waste from 3 brush heads a year is less impactful than the extra resources used for an individual using 12 brushes in a year. Until a better alternative is available, our bristles will not be biodegradable or compostable.
