MamaP bamboo toothbrush compostable handle



 

What Is The Brush Handle Made Of?
Bamboo!

What Are The Bristles Made Of?
Our bristles are made from nylon, just like your regular toothbrush. But that’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. 

 

 How Can I Dispose Of My Bamboo Toothbrush?

Three Easy Ways to Dispose Brushes - You Choose

1. Compost

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.

2. Recycle

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.

3. Exchange

We've temporarily paused the exchange program for now.

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

How Do We Pack?

We ship plastic-free using 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 recycled and compostable cardboard.
