Bamboo toothbrush, a product you see more and more on the shelves. But how are these bamboo toothbrushes actually made? In this blog, we delve into the production process of a bamboo toothbrush, the materials used and the benefits of this product.
The process of making a bamboo toothbrush is actually quite simple. For example, MOSO bamboo is the first thing they are looking for, a fine type of bamboo because these leaves grow tall and therefore pandas do not eat them. After that, only the bamboo stems are picked so that the root system remains intact and the new stems grow back quickly, which is a very sustainable process as the material is not depleted. Useful bamboo stalks then go through the following processing process: the bamboo is transported, pruned and sorted according to the thickness of the bamboo. The bamboo stalks are then cut into several pieces, and then the split bamboo stalks are processed in a press. Finally, holes are made in the brushes to accommodate the bristles of the toothbrush (perforation). The toothbrushes also have a logo and name engraved on them. This is done with a laser.
The process of making a bamboo toothbrush
Bamboo toothbrushes are largely made from MOSO bamboo and bristles from 610 nylon. This means that toothbrushes are mostly biodegradable. The product is sustainable, as MOSO bamboo can grow up to one meter per day, so this type of material never runs out. As for toothbrush bristles; these are made from castor oil, a vegetable oil with a significantly lower carbon footprint than crude oil. The bristles are soft or medium soft and are made in 4 colors (white, blue, black and green). In addition to looking elegant, bamboo toothbrushes are also antibacterial due to their bamboo properties and are packaged in 100% recycled / biodegradable packaging.
The benefits of a bamboo toothbrush
By using a bamboo toothbrush, you can start a waste-free life and help the environment.
In addition, the bamboo toothbrush is a fantastic alternative to a harmful product from your household that is very easy to replace. Durable toothbrushes may be small, but so many people still use plastic toothbrushes, and do so more per year. This is why the transition to a bamboo toothbrush has a big impact. Take the test: Suddenly replacing a plastic toothbrush with a sustainable alternative turns out to be more influential than previously thought.
Colorful bamboo toothbrushes are not only suitable for sustainable oral care, they are also creative items that can be added to a sustainable gift. As a family, take a step in the right direction with a bamboo toothbrush, but also as a company . In this way, as a company, you show that sustainability is important to you and also provide a very original package.
In short, using a bamboo toothbrush will not only reduce your own plastic impression, but you will also be a trend setter for others when it comes to sustainable decisions.
