Single Kid Sized Bamboo Toothbrush
We love this single kid sized bamboo toothbrush! The bristles are recyclable and the brush is commercially compostable, along with the plant based wrapper. Many adults prefer to use a smaller toothbrush. Adults use these brushes too; they’re especially great for adults with smaller sized mouths! These toothbrushes are USDA Certified Biobased and Great American Certified. They are vegan, BPA-free, natural and non-toxic. Our kids sized bamboo toothbrushes can be used for the same amount of time as a conventional plastic toothbrush.
The composition of the bristles includes 62% Castor Bean Oil and 38% nylon. These bristles are biobased, but still not biodegradable unfortunately. All in all, we think our toothbrush is a “step in the right direction” because it results in less than 0.1 ounces of plastic waste (bristles), whereas the conventional plastic toothbrush is all plastic. If you’re looking for completely biodegradable bristles there are non-vegan versions available that include pig hair.
Also be sure to check out our Bamboo Toothbrush Kids 4-Pack! Buying them in bulk means you won’t resort to buying their plastic alternatives, because you’ll have backup bamboo brushes at home! 🙂
