How long does the bamboo toothbrush last?

How does the bamboo toothbrush subscription work?
The Bam&Boo is a subscription model, this means that we deliver an eco-friendly bamboo toothbrush to your mailbox every couple of months – the customer chooses the recurrent period that she or he wants.
Which hardness of bristles do you offer in bamboo toothbrush?
All our toothbrushes have soft bristles. Why? The answer is simple: Recommended by dentists! However, we also have an option of Medium bristles (“Random color – medium bristles).
Why is it more eco-friendly?
The bamboo toothbrush is made of 95% renewable sources and is 95% biodegradable. These 95% are the bamboo handle, the paper carton and the PLA bag. The remaining 5% are the bristles which are made from Nylon 6 BPA free. We have at this stage chosen to use these bristles as they are still the best way to grant a good oral care. There are 100% bio alternatives like animal hair or PLA bristles, but which according to our standards aren´t yet a good alternative. In the meantime, we keep looking for viable alternatives to cope with these remaining 5%.
Regarding the bamboo, we use moso bamboo and a certified FSC supplier which means that is sourced in a sustainable way. Regarding production we work with a certified partner with ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO18001 certifications ranging from quality management to environmental management or healthy and safety management.
Still a word on bamboo. Apart being a 100% bio material is also a pretty good one. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. It’s naturally antibacterial so it doesn’t need pesticides or fertilizers and it needs very little water to grow.
Regarding the shipping, we just use standard shipping to minimize environmental impact. The bamboo itself is quite light and together with packaging and with paper envelope it weights no more that 50gr. Since we don’t used protection bubble plastic sometimes the toothbrush packaging arrives slightly crumpled. Then we just use the standard post offices and the “postman pat” of each neighborhood and by this way avoiding exclusive deliveries.
