Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrushes

We now have new ‘Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrushes’ available at Dental Implants & Aesthetics! Our bamboo toothbrushes come in both adult and kids’ sizes so you can grab one for the whole family! Unlike a traditional plastic toothbrush, bamboo is 100% biodegradable and can be reused or recycled.

 

What are the benefits of Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrushes?

There are many reasons why you should use a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush. Our team outlined several reasons below:

1.     Eco-friendly

Bamboo toothbrushes are an eco-friendly alternative solution to a traditional plastic toothbrush. The toothbrush handles are made of bamboo, while the bristles are soft and made from nylon.

Our Dental Implants & Aesthetics brushes are 100% biodegradable and can provide your teeth a great clean like a traditional brush would.

Before reusing your toothbrush for another purpose, make sure you remove the bristles and dispose of them accordingly.

2.     Sustainable option

Bamboo is a naturally growing plant that can be replanted and sustained for a long period of time. Due to its natural materials, it may not require fertilisers or pesticides to help it grow.

As it is a renewable source, it would produce less pollution in the atmosphere than a plastic toothbrush.

3.     Recyclable

Because of its natural properties, bamboo can be recycled or placed in a compost bin or in your garden to break down.

More than 30 million plastic toothbrushes are thrown away each year, and many of them end up in landfills or the ocean.

Plastic may not ever decompose, unlike a bamboo toothbrush, as the handle is made of a natural plant.

4.     Reusable

If you feel your toothbrush has outlived its usefulness, you do not have to get rid of it immediately.

You can still reuse your bamboo toothbrush for other alternative purposes.

Some of the ways you may be able to reuse your bamboo toothbrush include:

  • Garden markers
  • Cleaning tool
  • Pet brush
  • Art projects
  • Firewood

How long will my bamboo toothbrushes last?

With proper care, your bamboo toothbrush may last around three months. However, this time frame may vary from person to person. If you repurpose your toothbrush for activities other than brushing your teeth, it may last longer!
