Sustainably-grown bamboo, nylon-6
Recyclable paper, compostable paper
Meet the world’s most sold bamboo toothbrush by The Humble Co! The handle is made from 100% biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo. This brush will clean just as well and last just as long as your regular plastic toothbrush. As well as the added benefit of being better for the environment. The Humble Brush is the eco-friendly and socially responsible toothbrush choice. Furthermore, every Humble purchase funds projects for the benefit of children in need.
The bristles are made of nylon-6. This material has been chosen because of a lower hardness (which is good for your teeth) and a lower water absorption (which is good for keeping your brush hygienic) compared to other types of nylon. The brush is strong, durable and hygienic synthetic material. And the bristles are produced by DuPont, the first major manufacturer of nylon bristles with over 70 years of experience.
Once your toothbrush is worn out, just separate the head containing the bristles from the handle. The handle of your bamboo toothbrush can easily be composted and the bristles go to the household waste or plastic recycling. Bamboo grows very quickly. Some species up to one meter per day. The production yield of bamboo is many times greater than that of trees on the same land area. Therefore, several harvests per year are also possible. New stems grow out, which makes replanting unnecessary. This in turn has a positive influence on soil stability.
The plant is also naturally resistant to insects and fungi, and can therefore be grown without pesticides. Bamboo is a better alternative for the climate. It gives a high oxygen production and it absorbs more carbon dioxide and produces more than 30% more oxygen than trees. Bamboo is a fantastic renewable material that grows quickly without the need of added fertilizer. The perfect choice for disposables such as q-tips, combs and similar products.
