Hydrophil Children's Bamboo Toothbrush with Plant-Based Bristles - Blue
The first and only toothbrush to be made with 100% plant-based, petroleum free bristles!
Our children are the future. Let’s show them how they can protect the blue planet and their teeth at the same time. The extra soft Hydrophil toothbrush is made from fast-growing bamboo with castor oil bristles.
Castor oil is a natural product made from the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis). The raw material is used neither as food nor as animal feed, and its cultivation therefore does not compete with food crop cultivation areas.
An all-round eco-friendly toothbrush - vegan, BPA-free and water-neutral - your child will support our environment every time they brushes their teeth.
10% of profits go to a charity providing access to clean drinking water for people living in the southern hemisphere.
The hundreds of choices we make each day impact the environment. Sometimes it’s a big decision… sometimes it’s as small as changing your toothbrush.
Over a billion toothbrushes in the US alone are used and disposed of each year, amounting to approximately 23,000 tonnes of landfill each year. The plastic they’re made of will not break down in our lifetime. Nor within the lifetime of our children or our children's children. Imagine that on a global scale.
Please note: the new bristles are made from the most environmentally friendly material that is currently available. Nevertheless, they are unfortunately not compostable under normal household conditions. We therefore still recommend that the handle and the bristles be disposed of separately.
Also - the bristles will be white, not blue - we are waiting for an updated image.
Available in Soft, Medium or Children's in a variety of colours.
A simple change for you - a big change for the earth.
