WHY BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSHES?
Why? Simple. There are over seven billion people in the world, most of which brush their teeth with a normal plastic toothbrush. What is often ignored, is that most of these people uses several toothbrushes a year, leading to an incredible amount of rubbish in our seas and landfills. Your Green Monkey Bamboo Toothbrush will not be one of them. Our bamboo toothbrushes are most of the time made with Moso bamboo. Founded in Asia, Moso bamboo is a popular species (not eaten by Pandas). It can be harvested in three years with no need of pesticide. Compared with the longer growth period of wood, bamboo has a relatively smaller environmental impact. Moreover, it is 100% biodegradable.

What can you do to circumvent plastic out of plastic toothbrushes when they are all plastic? Using a bamboo toothbrush is just one way to get plastic out of your life. It is very difficult to do, especially when buying provisions at the supermarket. Many food items are wrapped in plastic containers and some bamboo toothbrush cases have a synthetic lining inside the paper packaging.
The cost of a bamboo toothbrush is low. Bamboo is lightweight and completely biodegradable. It is just the handle that is made from bamboo. The bristles are often made from biodegradable plastic. The bamboo handle is made from the concave bamboo tree that grows in tropical regions. The handle is carved from the wood, and the bristles are then added
The benefits include:
Eco - friendly Handle
