Bamboo Toothbrush

Submitted Sep 2019

The Bam & Boo Toothbrush is a brand of bamboo toothbrushes. We intend with this project to bring more ecological and social sustainability to this market that every year and only in Europe throws waste more than 1.000 million plastic and non-biodegradable brushes. We believe that even the most basic things in life deserve to be rethought to be more functional and eco-friendly. A more eco-friendly alternative Today and only in Europe more than 1.000 million plastic toothbrushes are produced every year. And more than 5.000 million worldwide. And most of them go directly to landfill. Just a small part is recycled. Depending of the source, some state that only about 10% is recycled, 15% is combusted, with some other sources claiming that 10% ends up in the ocean. We believe in our common sense. For sure that there is way too plastic around us. We’re not against it. We’re against using it just once or for a short time. We believe that even the most basic things in life deserve to be rethought to be more functional and eco-friendly. The Bam&Boo Toothbrush is made of 95% renewable sources and is 95% biodegradable. These 95% are the bamboo handle, the paper carton and the PLA bag. The remaining 5% are the bristles which are made from nylon 6 BPA free. We have at this stage chosen to use these bristles as they are in our opinion still the best way to grant a good oral care. There are 100% bio alternatives like animal hair or PLA bristles, but which according to our standards aren´t yet a good alternative. In the meantime we keep looking for alternatives to cope with these remaining 5%.
