Bitto’s bamboo toothbrush options are not only dentist-approved, but also Mother Nature recommended. These Bitto brushes tout a beautiful ergonomic handle made from a single piece of carved, CE Certified 100% Sustainably Harvested bamboo, containing no toxins, glues, or paints. They are sanded and sealed by hand using a Vegan soybean wax to ensure smoothness and longevity! This toothbrush is completely BPA and phthalate free. All bristle-strengths feature dental-grade nylon bristles that are also recyclable if your local facility accepts them. About the Bamboo: Our toothbrushes are Moso bamboo, the world’s fastest growing varieties of bamboo. It’s naturally antimicrobial and stronger than most hardwoods (like Oak)! It also is not a part of the endangered Giant Panda’s diet - You can find them happily munching on Black, Water, and Arrow bamboos. So you can buy with a clean conscience! About the Packaging: This packaging is made from completely recycled materials and is itself recyclable. When replacing Bamboo toothbrush after 3 months, remove the bristles using pliers. The bare bamboo will safely breakdown into the soil within 6 month. Dentist recommends replacing your toothbrush every 3 months or when the bristles appear frayed. By the time you dispose of your wooden toothbrush, a bamboo tree matures and grows up to 90 feet, thereby reducing your carbon footprint and also acting against climate change. Your Impact: Bamboo toothbrushes are a sustainable alternative to plastic toothbrushes that continue polluting our oceans, marine life and the planet decades after being discarded. Unlike plastic toothbrush, your wooden toothbrush will disintegrate into the soil in a span of 6 months. With this switch, you make sure that you don’t contribute to this pile of plastic waste in the landfill anymore.
