It is estimated that worldwide, 3.6 billion toothbrushes are used every year. Around 80% of these end up in our oceans, causing harm to marine life and habitats.
F.E.T.E - From Earth To Earth - bring you these eco-friendly toothbrushes in a range of colours. Family packs are available, and the toothbrushes come in soft, medium or firm.
100% recyclable and biodegradable packaging
The bristles are attached with pressure into the brush head, negating the need for glue. They are made from nylon, which is BPA free, and dentists say is the best material for toothbrush bristles. Natural ones tend to be too harsh on gums and can cause damage. They are also retain moisture, so can be a breeding ground for bacteria.
When your brush reaches the end of its life, pull the bristles out with pliers, and then the handle can be composted.
The brushes are coloured with a natural resin paint, which is a kind of plant paint, so you can compost the handle.
Bamboo is an amazing material - it is the world's fastest natural renewing resource, and is also naturally anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, which means it can grow without the need for pesticides.
The bamboo used for these toothbrushes is moso bamboo, which is not eaten by pandas.
I have been meaning to move over from plastic toothbrushes for a while and was so happy to see that BB did this range! They arrived really quickly in a fully recyclable box. Kids loved them and they've been soft but firm enough to brush effectively. Also got to teach them about sustainability at the same time too!
Thank you very for taking the time to review! So glad you love the toothbrushes!
