The bamboo toothbrush is a favourite #zerowasteswop for those wanting to reduce their waste. I’ve been using bamboo toothbrushes for years and recently switched to a Kindbrush. Not only is this bamboo toothbrush super cute, but more importantly it has been designed by a registered oral hygienist and has a small head so it can reach the areas in your mouth other toothbrushes can’t. It stands up right, comes in 5 different colours and it is available in adult and kids sizes.
Nature Lover Chrismarié Barnardt is a registered dental hygienist & The Kindbrush founder. Chrismarié’s concern about the impact of traditional oral care products on the global, growing plastic pollution crisis inspired her to create The Kindbrush. Their mission is: Healthy teeth. Happy planet. The Kindbrush range includes a bamboo toothbrush, biodegradable refillable floss in a glass jar as well as a 100% natural lip balm.
For every online order, The Kindbrush donate R5 to Develop Dental, a registered NGO working to increase access to quality dental care and oral hygiene education among children in under-resourced communities in and around Cape Town, South Africa.
The product & the packaging
I use my Kindbrush toothbrush together with earthly toothpaste bits.
The Kindbrush toothbrush is packaged in a cardboard box and the toothbrush itself is made from bamboo and fine, charcoal-infused nylon bristles. Bamboo is biodegradable, water-resistant, antibacterial and antifungal. The flat bottom helps to keep it dry and hygienic. When you replace your toothbrush I recommend you reuse it in other ways before removing the bristles, which can be eco-bricked and compost the handle. I add mine to my cleaning kit and use it to clean in grout lines and other hard to reach spots around the house.
