Sometimes it’s a big decision… sometimes it’s as small as changing your toothbrush.
Using a bamboo toothbrush is a simple way to make your oral hygiene routine more environmentally friendly.
A bamboo toothbrush looks pretty much the same as any regular toothbrush you've used but with one key difference: Instead of being made of plastic, it has a wooden handle.
And why does it have charcoal bristles? Because they naturally have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties, so they help to fight the build-up of plaque and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Charcoal can also help to whiten your teeth if they are stained by drinking tea or coffee, or eating certain foods.
This plastic-free toothbrush can decompose in as little as four months compared to the thousands of years which a plastic toothbrush takes to break down…you can clearly see the benefit to the environment!

Why a bamboo handle?
It may never have occurred to you how many toothbrushes you use in your lifetime. If you're changing your toothbrush every three months as dentists recommend, then you'll probably use about 300. Some estimates suggest that about 3.6 billion toothbrushes are disposed of worldwide every year.
That's a lot of plastic going into landfills or ending up in oceans. But you can do you bit to reduce the problem by using a bamboo toothbrush. Bamboo is sustainable because it is so fast-growing and it biodegrades quickly.
Some of the great benefits of using bamboo include: it captures a lot of carbon as it grows (around 30% more than most other wood); there's no need to chop down swathes of rainforest to grow it; it has antimicrobial properties, meaning that bacteria are less likely to grow on it.

I was utterly shocked how clean my teeth felt and how my gums had no irritation after using this toothbrush. And I don't mind plucking the bristles out when I'm ready to dispose of the handle.
This is my first time using a bamboo toothbrush and I was very impressed with it. The brush is very light and has a very sleek design to it. I was worried that maybe there would be rough spots in the wood but it is very smooth. The bristles are soft but strong enough to clean my teeth and it's a very nice clean feeling afterwards
