This beautiful toothbrush by Truthbrush is made from organic bamboo, with plant-based bristles. The DuPont bristles contain 62% castor bean oil and 38% nylon, reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
The rounded ergonomic handle is crafted from sustainable, organic bamboo which is naturally anti bacterial. These brushes come with medium bristles, which are castor oil based (non-plastic). Each brush is hand-wrapped in fully recyclable packaging.
Longevity - "The American Dental Association suggests that everyone replace their toothbrushes every three or four months. At that rate, brushers in the U.S. alone would go through over one billion toothbrushes each year. And if everyone around the world followed those recommendations, about 23 billion toothbrushes would get trashed annually. Most are traditional toothbrushes, but some 55 million U.S. brushers use electric toothbrushes each year, so some number of those plastic-handled, battery-containing objects also end up in the waste stream each year.
And because plastic is essentially indestructible, that means nearly every single toothbrush made since the 1930s is still out there in the world somewhere, living on as a piece of trash." (Credit National Geographic, How Your Toothbrush Became Part of the Plastic Crisis. 2019)
Your bamboo toothbrush however will eventually begin to decompose but will last you about 6 months to a year if cared for (ie. allowed to dry in a ventilated area with the bristles faced down).
The Truthbrush is cruelty free, vegan and has recently won the Veggie Award Health & Wellbeing category, as well as the Oral Care category in the Eco Excellence Awards!
