FAQs


  • Is the bamboo toothbrush handle fully biodegradable?

    Yes! Once you have removed the bristles with pliers (here's how) your toothbrush is fully biodegradable and therefore Eco-friendly.
  • Are the bristles biodegradable?

    While the bamboo toothbrush handle is fully biodegradable, the bristles are not. The reason for this is that we have yet to find a plant-based alternative that is durable enough to withstand brushing for any length of time. The bristles, however, are recyclable once removed from the toothbrush handle.
  • Why bamboo?

    Bamboo is a renewable resource so it is super Eco-friendly. It grows fast, is very hardy and requires little or no fertilisers or pesticides to grow. Bamboo does not cause deforestation so it is environmentally friendly. Bamboo also has natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties (which is why chopping boards are made from it) which makes it ideal material when it comes to oral hygiene. Learn More
  • Are Esbamboo toothbrushes vegan?

    Yes, the bristles are machine punched into the handle, so no animal-based adhesive is used.
  • How often should I change my bamboo toothbrush?

    Dentists recommend you change your toothbrush every two to three months. Why? To avoid the build-up of bacteria on your toothbrush and if your toothbrush is not removing plaque, because it is frayed, this will build up and turn to tartar (a build-up of minerals) which in turn can damage your gums.

  • Which hardness of bristle do your bamboo toothbrushes have?

    Our kids’ bamboo toothbrushes are all soft bristle to protect delicate gums. For adults, there is a choice between soft or medium, both of which are effective in plaque removal without damaging the gums.
  • What are the bristles made of and are they recyclable?

    At Esbamboo you can choose between three types of bristle, all of which are recyclable. We have toothbrushes with BPA Free Nylon 6, natural coloured PBT and charcoal infused PBT bristles, both of which are recyclable. In order to be as eco-friendly as possible, we recommend you remove the bristles with pliers (here's how) and put them with your plastic recycling.
  • How do I dispose of my bamboo toothbrush?

    The most Eco-friendly way to dispose of your toothbrush is to remove the bristles with a pair of pliers (here's how) and place with your plastic recycling collection and put the handle in your home compost or biodegradable organic waste bin. Learn More
