Environmental Toothbrush - Child
THE NATURAL NEWBORN STORE ©
In Australia, over 30 million toothbrushes are used and disposed of by Australians each year, amounting to approximately 1000 tonnes of landfill each year. The plastic they`re made of won`t break down in our lifetime; nor within the lifetime of our children. Imagine that on a global scale!
Designed by a Brisbane dentist, The Enviromental Toothbrush is a simple solution. Made from MOS bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are 100% biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary either. The handle is made of bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo is technically considered a member of the grass family. It is the fastest growing plant on earth, and incredibly abundant. The bamboo is cultivated for three years, and then harvested. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. In fact, by harvesting and using the bamboo, they help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas.
The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
The bristles are made from a polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability. We recommend you rinse and dry your toothbrush after use to keep it clean. 1 toothbrush per packet
