Designed by an Australian dentist this 100% biodegradable toothbrush is made from bamboo. The toothbrush and all the packaging can be put onto the compost heap or into the garden when finished.

The handle
The handle is made of MOS 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 between three to five 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, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. The bamboo is grown by many local farmers (NOT PLANTATION).

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
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.

Disposing of your toothbrush
For best results, most dentist's recommend you replace your toothbrush either monthly or at least every quarter some even say use it until it stops.

To answer the main question, HOW LONG DOES IT LAST? - We test drove a toothbrush for over 8 months so yes they last (not that we suggest you do that).

The Environmental Toothbrush can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill. Both the bamboo and bristles will biodegrade into soil, without pollution.

The panda
China’s Giant Panda consumes the soft bamboo shoots, stems and leaves as its main food source. The Environmental Toothbrush honours this environmental mascot in the logo. Because bamboo is so abundant, sustainable and renewable our use does not impact on the food source of the Giant Panda in fact they do not like the MOSO bamboo.

I love the concept and the bristles are just the right texture.

The wooden feel took a bit of getting use to, but otherwise great to use. The only downside is that my husband and I can't tell our toothbrushes apart!

This is my favourite toothbrush! I have been religiously using them for 3 years now and don't see that changing anytime soon!

Really great toothbrush, and can be used to mark pot plants when you done with it

Good toothbrush and am so glad to be able to reduce my plastic usage, basic design but what more do you need really? Just be aware that the bristles are plastic so you need to remove them before composting

Great Product and great design, would recommend it over other environmental toothbrushes mostly because they don't package their products in wasteful plastics. Sadly, I have read some reviews: that say the bristles aren't biodegradable. My Plastic Free Life does an excellent review on these products:
and wastelandrebel is there to back her up:

hopefully someday they will all be completely biodegradable

Its great. Its basic in design for sure, but I think it does an absolutely excellent cleaning job and for me, the medium bristles, are the perfect hard to soft ratio. I will never go back to my old toothbrushes. Am 100% satisfied and would advise everyone at least gives this product a try.

Last's super long and gives a decent brush. Would be great to add a feature to tell them apart when the whole family is using them.

Works well enough but the brush-head's design needs work. It's a bit oversized relative to the bristles so it's difficult to manoeuvre around the back of the mouth.

It works just as good as a normal toothbrush and at the same time you help save the planet, great product

Love that the entire toothbrush is biodegradeble and bristles have softened after a few weeks of use (bought the medium strength)
Cons: handle is a bit short, bristle design could be improved
27/12/2017, By Luci
I wish I could recommend this as I so believe in using biodegradables and was so keen I bought 6! But ... and I would rather be giving this feedback to the manufacturer. The design is completely unsophisticated. The shape is like the first toothbrush ever made, and is akin to the cheapest nastiest version on the shelves today. A few small innovations could have made this so good!

I feel like such a good person when using this and I now look my friends up and down when I see them using plastic toothbrushes.

looks amazing and works well
21/12/2017, By Heleen
Amazing!!! I absolutely love these toothbrushes. They lasts surprisingly long and once you need to get a new one, you just pop this one in the garden.

The handle is sturdy, easy to hold and super smooth (no fear of splinters getting in my palm). Having come from a super-soft bristle toothbrush (plastic!!!), the transition to medium bristles has been a slight process, but (because of the stronger bristles) my teeth are cleaning with such ease, now! Next, I'll buy the soft bristled version of this brush. There's no way I'm going back to plastic. This toothbrush is fantastic.

Great tooth brush! Bristles last and my husband also converted after I bought one.
29/11/2017, By Nikki
I think this isa great, good looking toothbrush that does the job and helps give the environment a break. I am a convert - no more plastic. The only thing is if the whole family is using them - they all look the same.....
29/11/2017, By Amber
I love this toothbrush. Better for the environment and cleans well. Unfortunately occasionally I do get one where all the bristles come out, but in general its worth the buy

Great environmentally friendly option, have been using mine for a few months and it is awesome!
