I have bought a variety of Bamboo Toothbrushes over the past 6-9 months, all of them wear well, do the job, are nice to hold, and I can dispose of them in good conscience.
I have to admit, though, my favourite so far has been the Bamboo Toothbrush with Charcoal Bristles by TEVRA – my teeth feel a lot cleaner with the charcoal bristles!
- Zero waste – ie packed in all recyclable material!
- Dentist Approved: Not only is this toothbrush excellent for the environment, but it is also good for you. The toothbrushes all feature high-quality dental grade bristles, just like your plastic toothbrush at home. You will get the same clean, healthy teeth without any of the waste.
- Medium Bristles: They are stronger but gentle enough to not to cause enamel damage while delivering plenty of polishing power.
- GUARANTEED – If you do not like this toothbrush, TEVRA will refund the full purchase price – basically, you have no excuse not to try it!
EDIT: I have recently read that the toothbrushes which I bought most, and favoured, from Tevra are “BPA-free Charcoal” – tested with a flame, and they melt rather than burn, so I suspect that there is some polyester in them. So, It is sadly it is not 100% compostable – despite what is openly advertised .
I did, however, find a blog post on this subject which may be worth reading (and I will look at it in more detail when I have finished work) with some comparisons…. I think I am going to start emailing each company individually to find one that is 100% compostable…. I will keep you updated!
