Bamboo Toothbrush with Replaceable Heads Multi-Packs
I have two of these from a dental starter set, and I love the idea of a non-plastic toothbrush. Unfortunately, though it cleans well enough and the bristles are soft, the rest of the toothbrush is a little too rough. Maybe I just have sensitive lips and cheeks or a very mild sensitivity to bamboo, but the inside of my mouth got quite irritated. Do keep up your excellent work, though!
We got the four pack for our family of four. The brush heads are a little big for my toddlers (2 & 4) but manageable. We all really like them. They clean well without being too abrasive. They look nice, are a great value, and we love that we're not contributing to more single use plastic products!
I bought these toothbrushes for my family and I for Christmas. So far my mom and I love them. The bristles are softer than your average plastic toothbrush but I've found they work just as well. Haven't tried composting them yet since I'm still on my first toothbrush.
Your Toothbrush | Our Planet
Introducing the one & only etee Bamboo Toothbrush with a Replaceable Head! Hold up - WHAT!?! It's true. The paparazzi can't get enough of these beauties and they're a SERIOUS hot commodity around here.
Each toothbrush consists of 2 (fully assembled) parts - first you've got your rounded toothbrush handle, whose base is dipped in water-based paint (the paint helps to protect from any water damage that you get at the base of other bamboo toothbrushes.) Added to that is the detachable toothbrush head with 100% plant-based bristles. The total length of the toothbrush is 7.5". Hooray!
The rounded toothbrush handle is made of FSC certified bamboo and the bristles are made from castor bean oil, which is the most eco-friendly alternative on the market today - double hooray!
Plastic Free Club means Added Value | In our retail shop, each toothbrush would cost $5 a piece, but by bundling them together we can offer our Plastic Free Club members a discount of over 20%. Wowsers - plastic-free brushing never looked so good!
What else is in my toothbrush?
A metal staple is used to clamp the the plant-based bristles into the brush, keeping them from falling out when you're brushing your chiclets! It's a normal part of a toothbrush, and even plastic ones have staples in them too! When you're ready to replace your toothbrush head (dentists suggest every 3 months), simply replace with a new head and keep the handle. To compost the used bamboo head, you can remove the bristles from the head using a pair of pliers, which will also remove the staple. The bristles are not yet biodegradable, but fear not, we're working on a solution!
