Why I chose this eco friendly toothbrush (oral health reasons)

  • Toothbrush head is small, allowing focused cleaning (soft toothbrush)

  • Bristles are tightly compacted, all the same length creating effective brushing (soft toothbrush)

  • Soft bristles, avoiding permanent damage to both the teeth and gums (soft toothbrush) 

  • There are no plastic components within the bristles, causing more damage than good

  • Good sized handle, easy to grip 

Why I chose this eco friendly toothbrush (environmental reasons)

Why Bamboo?

• Organically grown – doesn’t require pesticides or fertilizer 
• Requires less water than traditional agriculture
• Naturally antibacterial and antifungal
• Produces up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent trees
• Absorbs more CO2 from the air than equivalent trees (up to 5 times!)
• Fast growing - matures in as little as 3 years
• Not labour intensive - doesn’t require replanting or stump removal
• Stabilises the soil with a complex, permanent root structure
Just in case you were wondering, pandas don’t eat Moso bamboo. So none of our cuddlesome friends will go hungry when you pick Piksters Bamboo.

How Quickly Does the Bamboo Handle Break Down?
• Industrial composter – just a few weeks
• Home compost – up to six months
• Buried in the garden – 3 years
• On top of the soil – 5 to 10 years.
