Put simply using bamboo makes sense. It's such a versatile plant and compared to wood it has a faster harvest, it's more sustainable and easier to shape. Pandas eat it and pandas are cute. Don't worry however there is plenty of bamboo for our brushes and pandas. Once harvested it grows back incredibly fast. If you've ever had bamboo growing in your back garden you'll know you quite literally can't get rid of it!

Our toothbrush handle is made of 100% biodegradable Mao bamboo from the Zhejiang Province. The bamboo is carbonised giving it a quality finish, longer life, water resistance and preventing the growth of bacteria and moulds during normal use.
You might find some of our toothbrushes vary in colour slightly. That's because it's all natural!
