This bioplastic toothbrush by French company Lamazuna is sold in the UK by the Plastic Change Project.

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.

Packaging: cardboard

End of Life: 

  • product: can be returned to the Plastic Change Project for recycling
  • packaging : recyclable / compostable

"For those who have struggled to find a suitable bamboo toothbrush, this toothbrush may be an alternative that still lets you reduce plastic waste while also maintaining healthy teeth and gums."

Advantages...

  • 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.

  • Lamazuna have worked hard to make this product as carbon neutral as possible
  • 2% of profits are donated to a reforestation project in the Amazon rainforest, and so far they have planted over 4,500 trees
  • Suitable for Vegans

Disadvantages...

  • This toothbrush handle is made from bioplastic (70% castor oil, 30% plastic) so still contains some plastic
  • The toothbrush heads are made from an ABS base with nylon-6 bristles
