Bamboo Toothbrush with Replaceable Heads Multi-Packs
When I started working on “reducing our carbon footprint” with the Cub Scouts that I lead, one night I took a huge container of all of the swaps that I have made over the years. The most popular response was to these toothbrushes! I have bought several to give to my family members and friends (and the woman who cuts my hair got one for Christmas from me!) to give as gifts. I also took these products to my last dentist appointment to show, and he was very interested and his assistant was fully on board to order them for her family, so I hope she did. I make sure they know the etee website to browse and hopefully at some point I can support your business by converting others.
The design needs improvement to be more effective and ergonomic. The bristles don't cover enough surface area and the dip in the middle of the bristles leads to areas being easily missed along the gum line etc. The neck of the brush head is too bulky so it feels uncomfortable against the corners of my mouth when reaching for back teeth. This is basically a very primitive toothbrush design. If they can copy the bristle, brush head, and handle designs of name brand (e.g. Colgate) plastic toothbrushes that have been researched, dentist approved, and consumer tested but made with renewable materials that would be fantastic. No need for all the fancy colorful aesthetics of most name brands, simple design is fine, but it should be ergonomic and conducive to a good teeth cleaning!
Soft bristles - like the feel of it
Love the toothbrush handle and the fact that the head is replaceable. They’re also very pretty! However I find that the wooden head is too wide and the surface area the bristles cover too small, making brushing the back of my teeth quite hard and uncomfortable. I wish the shape of the it was closer to a conventional toothbrush. The bristles are nice and soft though. I would deff buy these again, however I really hope there is a plan for product improvement!
These are very comfortable to use and work just as well as my old manual toothbrush, without having to worry about all that plastic. There is definitely a bit of a woodsy taste, but it isn't strong or unpleasant. The head is easy to change, and the bristles are soft. I am definitely recommending these!
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!
