These wooden toothbrushes are not made of bamboo, but of sustainable Beechwood in Germany. This means that your new toothbrush has less miles to travel when compared to a bamboo toothbrush from China.

End of Life: 

  • Cut the head off the toothbrush. Put the handle in the compost or general waste.
  • The wooden heads can be returned to Georganics as part of their Zero to Landfill scheme
  • Packaging is recyclable

Advantages...

  • Made from FSC certified sustainable Beechwood in Germany
  • Every tree cut down is replanted in the forest and any unusable offcuts are used to heat the factory 
  • The range includes brushes with soft, medium and firm bristles as well as a kid-sized brush with soft bristles
  • Suitable for Vegans and cruelty-free 

Disadvantages...

  • As with almost toothbrushes, the bristles are made from nylon (BPA-free Nylon-6), a synthetic plastic material which is difficult to recycle

Costs...

~£4.40 per toothbrush 

Where to Buy...

Available online direct from Georganics or find a local stockist

Tips...

  • To reduce risk of mould, store your toothbrush in a stand or hooks rather than a pot so that the handle can dry out between use
  • It's time to replace your brush when the bristles start to curve (every 1-4 months)
