This eco-friendly, Fair Trade, sustainable toothbrush for children has soft BPA-free nylon bristles suitable for sensitive teeth and gums. It is made from bamboo which has been heat treated to give a quality finish while providing water resistance and protection against microbes. Bamboo is a sustainable and biodegradable material as it grows fast without the use of any chemicals or pesticides. It will degrade faster than a plastic toothbrush in landfill or alternatively can be added to your compost heap once the bristles are removed. Environmental Toothbrush use Moso bamboo - this species of bamboo is known as 'panda-friendly' because pandas do not eat it or inhabit the area where it grows.
