The hundreds of choices we make each day impact the environment. Sometimes it’s a big decision… Sometimes it’s as small as changing your toothbrush. In Australia, over 30 million toothbrushes are used and disposed of by Australians each year, amounting to approximately 1000 tonnes of landfill each year. The plastic they’re made won’t break down in our lifetime, nor within the lifetime of our children. Imagine that on a global scale.
The Enviro Toothbrush is proudly the winner of the News.com.au Peoples Choice and Green Inventions Awards for 2009 and Highly Commended for Green Lifestyle Awards in 2012 & 2013.
The handle – is made of 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. Our bamboo is cultivated for three 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 bamboo, we help to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas. The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonization finishing process provides water resistance and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
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, we recommend you replace your toothbrush monthly. 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.

Eco Toothbrush – Bamboo Charcoal Enhanced Fibre Bristle:
Meet the new advancement in the Eco Toothbrush world. A simple design with amazing achievement in bristle technology!
The Eco Toothbrush is a simple solution. Made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are 100% biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary either.
The handle – The new design has a curved handle for easier access to your teeth. We use MOSO bamboo – why – because bamboo is part of the grass family so we are not cutting down trees – MOSO bamboo is one of the fastest growing bamboo’s in the world and our friendly PANDA’s do not like to eat it. We do not use PLANTATION Bamboo we give the local farmers an income from the land that is really only good for growing bamboo… AND YES they are manufactured in China – Fair Traded, which means everyone, gets a fair go and a fair pay.
The bristles – contain charcoal reactive ion, which can easily absorb the dental plaque on the surface of teeth to make teeth healthy and white. Ultrafine staggered ends of the bamboo charcoal enhanced bristles can go deep into the various gaps between the teeth to have a deep cleaning, the soft bamboo charcoal enhance bristles with super absorption capacity takes care of gums and protects then from injury while brushing.
Moisture proof and Antibacterial – The bamboo charcoal enhanced bristles are more moisture proof and antibacterial than normal bristles which can help to keep the bristles dry, keep away from bacterium breeding, leaving the mouth more comfortable, healthy with clean, and white teeth.
