What Is The Brush Handle Made Of?
The term superplant perfectly fits bamboo — the world's fastest growing woody plant — because it saves our Earth on a daily basis. As a carbon offsetter, it absorbs 5 times more carbon dioxide while producing 35% more oxygen.
It even has the power of regeneration, allowing it to be sustainable. Beyond that, bamboo helps its neighbors by reducing erosion with its soil nourishing ability. Even with all of its strengths, bamboo still finds a way to be humble — requiring no pesticides and needing less water than other plants.
Fun fact: We source our bamboo from the Fujian province, home of the Giant Panda. So when you brush with our bamboo toothbrush, you and the Giant Panda share the same morning routine.
What Are The Bristles Made Of?
Our bristles are made from nylon, just like your regular toothbrush. But there’s where the comparisons end. Because our bristles are also vegan and recyclable. We weren’t kidding when we said we sweat the small details.
What Materials Are Used In Packaging / Shipping?
Who likes having delivery boxes stack up in their room? We certainly don’t. That’s why our toothbrushes come in recyclable and compostable packages made from kraft paper.
What Else Should I Know?
Sustainability is our obsession. And our plantable business cards — containing wildflower seeds — allow us to spread our love of the environment with everyone we encounter. Talk about networking that yields plentiful results!
The annuals and perennials found in our cards include Zinnias, English Daisies, Daisies, and Black-Eyed Susans.
How Do We Pack?
We ship completely plastic-free using only recyclable and compostable materials.
Smaller orders are packed in mailers made from 100% recycled and compostable kraft paper.
For larger orders, we first search for boxes that can be repurposed. These boxes can come from our neighbors, friends, and even city recycling bins. If we can't find boxes to reuse, we'll buy compostable cardboard.
MamaP's pledge to staying green doesn’t end there. We even use non-reinforced paper tape with water-activated glue to secure your special packages.
How Can I Dispose Of My Bamboo Toothbrush?
Three Easy Ways to Dispose Brushes - You Choose
Start by breaking the head off and throwing it in the trash. Now you can go ahead and compost the handle.
Important: Keep the bristles intact to avoid them ending up in the water supply or environment.
You can recycle through TerraCycle’s oral care recycling program. Simply stop by a local drop-off center or send the brushes to TerraCycle by mail.
If you’re in NYC or Encinitas, come exchange your brush at our weekly markets. In return, we’ll give you $1-off your next purchase.
Don't have any of our brushes? No worries. We even take your old plastic brushes in an effort to eliminate waste.
How Do Subscriptions Work?
Choose a convenient purchase options: a one-time order or a subscription plan.

*The ADA recommends replacing toothbrushes every 3-4 months or more often if the bristles are visibly matted or frayed.
