Bamboo toothbrush is very similar to the conventional plastic toothbrushes you find in the supermarkets.
The difference is that the toothbrush has a bamboo handle made from Mao Bamboo. Mao Bamboo grows incredibly fast and is used commercially, leaving 1,500 other species of Bamboo for the Pandas to munch on (Panda friendly). Deforestation is not an issue with its rapid and frequent growth spurts. Mao Bamboo is a natural resource and soil conservation tool as it can grow in soil that has been damaged by poor agricultural methods.
The bristles of the bamboo toothbrush are made of Nylon, to ensure it is durable and vegan friendly.
Do store these bamboo toothbrushes in a cool and dry area. Due to Singapore’s humidity, do note that there is a possibility of the toothbrush growing mould. If so, do place your toothbrush in warm water to disinfect them and air dry them.
