At Bio Protect we are always looking for more ways to change the environmental impact in our dental surgeries. The recent and increasing focus everywhere on the war on waste has many people trying to change their ways to do what they can to help reduce our toxic waste. We dispose of millions of toothbrushes every year, which end up in landfill or floating around in the ocean and ending up on our beaches and river banks.

We can make a change by changing over to ecotoothbrush and make a real difference, with new technology in bristle manufacturing making it better for you and better for the environment.

The brushes are great for you to put in your patient sample bags or have available on the counter.

The toothbrushes are made up of bamboo charcoal enhanced bristles and MOSO bamboo handles- The toothbrush handle will disappear within a couple of years -which is far better than the hundreds or thousands of years for plastic. Snap off the head with the bristles and just throw the handle into the compost or bury it in the garden, or just throw it in the bin, either way it will disappear within a couple of years.

There are other creative uses for the handle. One suggestion is to snap off the head then use the handle in the garden to mark your veggies or herbs etc. The bristles are available in SOFT, MEDIUM and Child SOFT and contain charcoal reactive ion which can easily adsorb the dental plaque on the surface of teeth to make teeth healthy and white. Ultrafine ends of the bamboo charcoal enhanced bristles can go deep into the various gaps between the
teeth to have a deep cleaning effect. The soft bamboo charcoal enhanced bristles with super adsorption capacity takes care of gums and protects them from injury while brushing.

The charcoal enhanced bristles give you a better clean, with nano technology in infrared and odour absorbing brilliance. Charcoal enhanced Toothbrush aids in mouth odour control and cleans the mouth, helps prevention of tooth decay and has a strong tooth whitening effect and freshness after brushing.

The bristles are made from a BPA FREE polymer resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability. Unfortunately, there are currently no biodegradable bristles options available. The bamboo charcoal enhanced bristles are more moisture proof and antibacterial than normal bristles which can help to keep the bristles dry, keep away from bacterium breeding, leaving the mouth more comfortable, healthy with clean, and white teeth.

The handle is made from MOSO bamboo. Bamboo is part of the grass family, so no trees are cut down – MOSO Bamboo is one of the fastest growing bamboos in the world and PANDAS do not like to eat it. At Bio Protect, we have all tried the toothbrushes and love them! These toothbrushes will last as long your normal toothbrush lasts.

It is also available with customised labelling on the handle and package at no extra cost. Minimum order quantity applies.
