bambooth’s handle will biodegrade and return to the earth within 6 months if place in a private or commercial composting bin. Please remove the bristles before placing it in the compost by snapping off the head or using a pliers to pull the bristles out. The bristles can be recycled as plastics at a local amenity centre. If you throw your bambooth into the regular bin, the handle will also biodegrade in landfill over time.
Made in China, close to bamboo sources.
The patented bambooth biodegradable tooth brush was designed by Joe, one half of the Irish duo behind the bambooth brand. Niamh and Joe from Ashbourne in County Meath are both passionate about the environment and after a realisation by Niamh that a toothbrush handle didn’t have to be plastic wood worker Joe set about hand carving the first bambooth handle. Both Niamh and Joe live in London and are dedicated to protecting nature and inspiring others in joining them in choosing earth-friendly sustainable alternatives.
bambooth : “Join us in this mission. Whether you like to run, swim in the ocean, walk your dog in the park or explore the earth’s wilderness…give the ‘booth to plastic’! A small change multiplied by the millions, will have a huge impact. And this is only the start.”
Each of the four bambooth toothbrushes are linked to conservation projects aimed at habitat protection so that a proportion of net sales for each brush is donated to a specified conservation effort. The four partnered charities are Plastic Oceans (Sea Blue brush), The Marine Conservation Society (Aqua Marine brush), Coral Reef Alliance (Coral Pink brush) and The Jane Goodall Institute (Forest Green brush)
