Purganics bamboo toothbrushes have a handle that is made out of 100% biodegradable bamboo which is light, ergonomically designed and provides a great grip for ease of brushing. The bristles are made out of Dupont Nylon 6 - which is a faster degradable form of nylon as compared to the other lower nylon grades.
Why Nylon at all?
Simple - we want our toothbrush to fulfill its primary task of effective and repeated brushing. We found that there are no natural alternatives that would allow you to use your brush for the dentist recommended 3 months. Our bristles are free from the toxin BPA and come in different thickness - Adult (Soft & Medium), Kids (Soft) - and also an array of fun colors for the entire family.
Using Bamboo toothbrushes helps us reduce our plastic footprint since bamboo handles are 100% biodegradable. Every year billions of toothbrushes are discarded globally - most of these will end up in our oceans or in landfills and will not biodegrade.
Bamboo is not a tree but the fastest growing grass on earth - so no forests are felled to make your toothbrush handle. Another great feature of bamboo is that it is naturally antibacterial which means that there is no need to use fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation - which means that there is no chance of you getting exposed to any toxins or pesticides by using our bamboo toothbrushes.
Using a Bamboo toothbrush is an environmentally responsible choice. The Purganics bamboo toothbrush has no disadvantages to conventional toothbrushes - it will last you just as long as other commercial toothbrushes. Dentists recommend you change your toothbrush every 3 months.
