Bioplastic is a very complex topic, but after some research we have chosen to include this toothbrush in our library of alternatives to reduce plastic waste.
The design, manufacturing and end-of-life of this toothbrush have all been carefully considered by Lamazuna and they have demonstrated how it is possible to rethink plastic; to close the loop and make a more sustainable product. This is a truly zero waste toothbrush.
The reusable handles are made in France. The recyclable heads are made in Italy.
End of Life:
product: can be returned to the Plastic Change Project for recycling
packaging : recyclable / compostable

Great alternative if you've had trouble finding a comfortable bamboo toothbrush
Both the brush handle and the heads can be returned by freepost to the Plastic Change Project for recycling. The handles are recycled by Lamazuna to create new ones.
Unlike bamboo toothbrushes where it is difficult to recycle the nylon bristles, the changeable heads on the Lamazuna toothbrush are recycled via a Terracycle scheme
