Why should you buy this type of product?
It is critical that we stop sending plastic toothbrushes to landfill and our oceans. By switching to a bamboo toothbrush you are preventing at least 99% of the plastic from reaching the ocean vs a traditional brush
Why Bamboo for a toothbrush?
Bamboo is a remarkable plant that can have many applications in the reusable & sustainable product space.
- 100% Plant-based made from organic cotton and bamboo wood

- The plant grows naturally without any pesticides or fertilizers.
- Once harvested it regrows from it owns roots.
- Bamboo fibres are anti-bacterial
Zero plastic is used in our packaging for our natural toothbrush. It is made from recycled material and can then be recycled with your cardboard at home, creating a closed loop.
Why EcoShoots bamboo toothbrush in particular?
Value pack of 5 with 5 animal pictures
Each eco toothbrush has a different animal for your little ones to enjoy. They have a choice between an Alligator, Koala, Gecko, Giraffe or a Lion.
Small brush head and smooth edges
We didn’t like what was currently on the market due to a ‘wood feel’ in the mouth from the heads being too big. Our design has a smaller head to minimise this and the minimal handle design uses less material and energy to produce than others.
Heat treated bamboo handle
The handle is heat treated to increase its lifetime by providing water resistance. Replace the toothbrush every 2-3 months as recommended by dentists.
BPA free Nylon-4 bristles
We use high quality Nylon-4 bristles for our medium toothbrush. Each wood toothbrush has 99% less plastic than a traditional disposable. See our image or description for more info on disposal of the bristles.
Dry well After Use
Care should be taken to dry your brush after use. Even though the bamboo handle has been heat-treated to provide extra water resistance, it is still a natural product so should be treated as such.
Along the same lines, also store the brush in a well-ventiallted place. This will ensure your brush stays in tip-top condition until you come to change.
You should replace your brush every 2-3 months or when the bristles get misshapen. If you experience this on a regular basis you should try to brush with a lower force.
