Bamboo Toothbrush | Medium BristlesMamaP
Alternative to plastic toothbrushes.
The handle is lightweight and compostable. Bristles are durable and made of DuPont Nylon - recyclable wherever nylon is accepted. The non-toxic paint tip prevents early decay - to last as long as other leading plastic toothbrushes (except they won't last 1,000 years like the plastic ones). An ergonomic handle and rounded smooth head make brushing very enjoyable!
These toothbrushes do more than keep your pearly whites shiny and clean - much more! Use your toothbrush purchase to fuel a cause you care about!

How to Use
Use them just like any toothbrush. The ADA recommends replacing your brush every 3-4 months. When storing, it’s recommended that they are upright in a toothbrush holder or something similar. This will ensure that they dry properly.

End of Life Instructions
Two Easy Ways to Dispose of Brushes:
1. Compost. Start by breaking the head off and throwing it in the trash. Now you can go ahead and compost the handle.
Important: keep the bristles intact to avoid them ending up in the water supply or environment.
2. Recycle. You can recycle through TerraCycle’s oral care recycling program. Simply stop by a local drop-off center or send the brushes to TerraCycle by mail.
