This is a brilliant tooth brush - lovely to use and surprisingly hard-wearing.
The 'Environmental Toothbrush' invented by an Australian dentist, has a handle made from MOSO bamboo, an environmentally sustainable timber. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth, and incredibly abundant. It re-generates itself naturally, with minimal rain and without the need for harmful pesticides. The bamboo is grown by local farmers (not plantation). The bamboo is heat treated to carbonise the surface of the bamboo, giving it a quality finish, water-resistance and durability.
The bristles are made from a BPA FREE polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use.
China’s Giant Panda consumes the soft bamboo shoots, stems and leaves as its main food source. The bamboo in Environmental Toothbrush does not impact on the food source of the Giant Panda - in fact they do not even like MOSO bamboo.
