A purchase of our toothbrush is a vote for biobased products that are not fossil fuel-based! Our product is BPA-Free, Vegan, and Verified Non-toxic.
About the brush:
We’ve created a high quality easy-to-grip curved handle made entirely out of bamboo. Only organic, wild, giant Chinese Moso Bamboo is used for our bamboo toothbrush handles. No pesticides or fertilizers are ever used on our bamboo – in fact, because it is wild mountain bamboo, doing so would be completely impossible. Likewise, our bamboo is never watered by us — only natural mountain rain. At present we are harvesting less than 1% of the possible bamboo resources available in the sprawling Chinese bamboo mountain range where our bamboo is harvested. Less plastic, more bamboo!
This special SOFT bristle is composed of 62% Castor Bean Oil, 38% plastic. This is the latest and most advanced biobased bristle in the world today. It’s biobased, but still not biodegradable. You may have seen Dasani brand plastic water bottles made form 30% plants – our bristle is a similar concept. Prior to the invention of nylon in the 1930s, pig hair was used for toothbrush bristles worldwide. Today, pig hair remains the only biodegradable option – and it is a very controversial material. We hope you’ll support our brand as we “vote” with our supply chain. We’re pushing bristle manufacturers to develop better alternatives to nylon. This new bristle that we are now using is the best available option. It’s not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction. Our bristles can be recycled – please read further details in the Proper Disposal Section of this website.
We wanted to our whole product to be ecological, including the packaging. The toothbrush comes in a compostable wrapper made from plants. The outer box is made from 100% paper and is also biodegradable – no tape or glue is used.
Our ecological bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a conventional plastic toothbrush- About 4 months.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. Because it contains naturally-occurring antimicrobial agents, there is no need for using fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation. Our bamboo is totally organic and wild. After we harvest a bamboo stalk to use it for toothbrushes, another stalk takes its place and grows to full size within just 2 years — a remarkable growth rate!
I was excited to receive a bamboo toothbrush. I'm trying to go as green as possible. However, upon using the toothbrush I discovered that the feeling of wood in my mouth is very uncomfortable. Also, the bristles of the brush came out in my mouth. Oh well, you can't win them all
absolutely love it
This is my second toothbrush I purchased the first was for my husband and he love the way it makes his tooth feels after brushing.
PLANT BASE BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH ALL MADE FROM PLANTS
I must not have read the description enough when I ordered the toothbrush because I assumed the bristles would also be natural (as in bamboo like the handle). The bristles are OK, being no different than any brush that I would buy at Walmart, just not what I was expecting. The handle takes some getting used to because it, being bamboo, is not flexible like the plastic ones. And it is reminiscent of the wooden tongue depressors in taste. Ugh.
This has soft bristles, which is what my dentist told me to get. My gums can bleed - but with this toothbrush and the remineralizing toothpaste, they have not bled. Actually, I need to order a replacement soon!
I love the handle but I really look forward to improving the bristles. Fraying and coming apart in two weeks. I know Jade Bloom is working to make improvements so I will try again later.
I really liked this toothbrush, especially the fact that it's not plastic.
I feel so much more socially and environmentally concsious by just this small lifestyle change. Plus...they work!!! Along with the toothpaste and the PH balanced mouthwash. Very refreshing.
Love this toothbrush, soft bristles and I like the look of it in my holder.
I love this bamboo toothbrush. It's so much better for the environment and feels good in your hand.
I will only use bamboo toothbrushes now. I am glad I can keep some plastic out of the landfill.
I'm so enjoying using this toothbrush that I just ordered another one. The bristles are soft enough to be gentle on the gums but still do a great job of cleaning. Paired with my Jade Bloom toothpaste, this is a winning combination
I am so thrilled with this toothbrush! The fibers are so gentle but do a fabulous job of cleaning my teeth without hurting my gums. Paired up with Jade Bloom toothpaste, it's unbeatable
My first reaction was, "it feels like a tongue depressor In your mouth"! Other than that, it's a really good toothbrush!
I love the tooth brush . It's a little soft but still gets the job done works really well with the toothpaste
The wood taste at first reminded me of those, but old wooden spoons for ice cream cups, but you adjust to it. The wood could be a little thinner on the brush end as a bit hard to fit back in by molars. But overall I like it.
I really like this toothbrush. the bristles are soft and it pairs perfectly with the remineralizes toothpaste.
