100% biodegradable toothbrush with soft, activated charcoal bristles
Available in adult and child sizes
PearlBar's Bamboo & Charcoal Toothbrush is a game changer, full stop. We hadn't really thought about biodegradable toothbrushes until this Australian company told us that plastic toothbrushes create over 100,000 tons of landfill waste every year. And plastic takes about 1000 years to break down, causing long-lasting damage to the environment (especially marine life) while it kicks around.
So of course we immediately thought, "What have we been doing with these horrible, definitely-not-biodegradable plastic toothbrushes that we throw away every 3-6 months? Are we crazy?" Possibly, but these wonderful little toothbrushes will restore your sanity; the activated charcoal in the bristles detoxifies and deodorizes your mouth, balancing PH levels while absorbing odors.
Our founder brought one on a trip back to her hometown in New Hampshire, and when she was about to leave for the airport, she simply tossed it into the woods. It's 100% biodegradable in soil within 6 months. If you don't happen to live near the woods or a place where you can bury it in the soil, you can compost it or — in a pinch — recycle it.
