Greenify your morning routine with the OG bamboo toothbrush. With an organic bamboo handle and certified bio-based bristles, this one of the easiest swaps to keep plastic out of your life.
The handle of this toothbrush is made with Moso bamboo, a species of bamboo that is not eaten by pandas. The bristles are USDA certified bio-based, made from 100% castor bean oil.
The Nitty-Gritty of "Bio-Based"
The bristles on these toothbrushes are made with castor bean oil, and will eventually fully biodegrade and return to the soil. However, they do not meet the certification requirements to be labeled "biodegradable," since they take longer than one year to fully biodegrade. This also means they do not meet the certifications of "compostable."
For proper disposal, these bristles can be buried or added to backyard compost, but please do not send to a municipal composting facility.
Store in a dry area.
We suggest storing in a mason jar with some pebbles. This allows water to drain off of the brush and prevents mildew.
Packaging + End of Life
The bamboo toothbrushes are packaged in cardboard boxes, which can be recycled or composted. The toothbrush bristles and handle can be home composted. If home composting is not accessible, the bristles can be removed easily with pliers and thrown away (or buried), while the handle can be composted, used as a fire starter, or reused as plant markers!
I'm ecstatic about the bamboo toothbrush! The bristles are juuuust right, not too hard not too soft. And the center curvature is *chef's kiss*.
Loved this brush! I'd previously tried the bamboo brush from Bite and I hated it - came apart and the bamboo was a very dry texture. This one is such a massive improvement. The handle is robust and the bristles are soft. Love it!!
bamboo brushes are so much better than plastic ones!
I like bamboo brushes so much better than plastic ones. Not only are they more sustainable, but they just feel so much better in my mouth!! These ones from A Drop in the Ocean Shop have bristles that are a great stiffness (not too stiff but get my teeth clean) and hold up super well!
Love the comfort of the shape of the brush head .. And handle. This is my first bamboo toothbrush...I will never go back
I have had a couple of these toothbrushes and absolutely love them! I need to get a few extra to keep on hand when guests stay the night this summer. Definitely will not be buying a plastic toothbrush ever again.
