Please check those questions and answers.
There are around 4 billion toothbrushes dumped in landfills and oceans each year. Plastic toothbrushes take around a thousand years to degrade but they will never fully biodegrade… They’ll just degrade into smaller microplastics which are dangerous to us and our wildlife.
Due to this, over 100,000 marine mammals and a million seabirds are killed off annually.
It is very hard to burn plastic and when they do get burnt, they end up releasing more hazardous chemicals.
Huli brushes are the best alternative to regular plastic toothbrushes as they are made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fiber, the handles are biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment.
The bristles we use are made of BPA free nylon 6. Although it is not biodegradable it is still the best choice to maintain proper oral care.
Nylon 6 is a low water absorbent that keeps your toothbrush hygienic and keeps your teeth clean.
There are bio alternatives like animal hair or PLA bristles, but to proper oral care standards, they aren’t yet a good alternative and also we are not keen on using any animal by-products.
We are constantly monitoring the market and as soon as there will be a better biodegradable alternative we will make sure to implement it in our toothbrushes.
You can use your Huli Brush in the same way you would use a regular plastic toothbrush.
It lasts for the same time as plastic toothbrushes. It is recommended by dentists to change your toothbrush every 2-3 months.
- First, try to upcycle – reuse your worn-out bamboo toothbrush before recycling it. Old toothbrushes serve as great scrubbers for cleaning your house (especially bathroom and kitchen) and rubbing the stains out of clothing.
- After it is no longer usable for you, recycle your Huli Brush.
Remove bristles by pulling them out small section by section with a pair of pliers. Make sure all the bristles are removed before composting.
- Throw away bristles with the regular trash.
- Compost your toothbrush handle or throw it away with your bio trash.
What is MOSO bamboo?
Moso (Phyllostachys edulis) is a rapidly renewable giant bamboo species which can grow up to 1 meter a day!
Its growth is environmentally sustainable and does not pollute the environment as there are no pesticides or fertilizers ever used on this bamboo, because it contains naturally-occurring antimicrobial agents.
The Moso bamboo plant consists of multiple stems, which may be harvested each year without killing the mother plant.
The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo mean that deforestation is not necessary.
What about pandas?
Moso bamboo is not a food for pandas (they prefer other types of bamboo) and Moso bamboo forests are not their natural habitat which means Moso bamboo is definitely panda friendly :-)
