Children BambooToothbrush (Renewable nylon)
An average personneeds to change a toothbrush every three months, which adds up to 400 plastictoothbrushes in his/her lifetime. Imagine millions of plastic toothbrushesdumped into the landfill in Hong Kong every year, bearing in mind it takesaround 500 to thousands years for plastic to decompose.
Brand story: Where it all started.
Did you know that a hundred milliontoothbrushes are thrown away in Hong Kong each year?
Unfortunately, most of them actually do end upin the ocean surrounding Hong Kong.
Plastic toothbrushes are not biodegradable soit remains in the environment for thousands of years - polluting our oceans andecosystems. It is disintegrated by sunlight and salt water into smaller plasticparticles, entering the ecosystem, into the food chain and eventually consumedby humans.
Aren’t there better ways to producetoothbrushes?
agooday bamboo toothbrush- made by all naturalmaterials
The brush handle is made by moso bamboo ormakino bamboo. The soft bristles toothbrushes uses renewable nylon.
Moso bamboo & Makino bamboo
Moso bamboo is native in Asia, it growsquickly and can be harvested in three years. In comparison to wood, bamboo is afar more environmentally friendly material. Trees take longer to grow and isoften logged in a manner that causes deforestation. However, in Taiwan mosobamboo is seasonal. During the bamboo shoot harvesting season, moso bamboobecomes out of stock. So during those times, we will be using the makino bambooin replacement.
Renewable nylon for bristle (extracted fromcastor oil)
Renewable nylon differs from normal nylon asit is extracted from castor oil and therefore vegan friendly. Even though theycannot be decomposed in nature, the material does not use petroleum productsand release less carbon dioxide in the production process. It is currently themost environmentally friendly material that we have found.
Currently agooday has two different types oftoothbrushes using the renewable nylon (children toothbrush and adult softbristle toothbrush).
Head and handle design
The design uses ergonomics to create the mostcomfortable handle for both pen holding and grasping position on thetoothbrush. The handle created by pieces of bamboo is 18 cm in length and 0.4com in thickness -designed to be easy to grip. The one centimeter brush andthin shank design makes deep and thorough cleaning accessible. The back of thetoothbrush can also be used to clean the tongue.
12 Taiwan animals designs
Each toothbrush handle has an animal designcarved on the handle. The twelve different animal designs are all of nativespecies from Taiwan. Different designs on the back of the toothbrush will makeit much easier to differentiate your own from others!
Mold proof with high-temperature carbonization
Through high-temperature carbonization, thewater in the bamboo is evaporated and the material is also strengthened in theprocess. A layer of beeswax and linseed oil is coated onto the bamboo to createa barrier from water vapor and prevent mold.
We recommend that the toothbrush be kept ondry surfaces when not in use to avoid mold growth.
