Go Bamboo Toothbrush - Adult Size
The Go Bamboo toothbrush comes in adult and child sizes. The handle is made of natural bamboo (not a bamboo laminate) sealed with an edible wax. The bristles are soft to medium stiffness, dual length, sharpened bristle, made from nylon 4 (see below for further information), and they clean your teeth really well. The toothbrush comes packaged in a sealed recycled cardboard box.
Is Nylon 4 biodegradable? - Nylon 4 is a synthetic polymer, that has been shown to be vulnerable to bacterial activity specifically Pseudomonas strain ND-11. In activated sludge (sewage) or compost, nylon 4 breaks down in about 3-4 months.
Size - Adult
Label your toothbrush with your name or your own drawn design on it so that each family member will know who owns which toothbrush.
Disposing of your toothbrush
Stick it in the compost and it will go eventually.
A favourite method of disposing the stick is to remove the bristles and recycle them as herb garden tags.
