The Environmental Toothbrush

Monday, January 03, 2011

I read about The Environmental Toothbrush in Sunset magazine and looked it up online. The toothbrushes are billed as an eco-friendly, biodegradable alternative to a traditional brush. They also happen to be much more attractive than most toothbrushes, which gives them additional appeal.

The brand's site describes them as, "Invented by a Brisbane dentist, The Environmental Toothbrush is a simple solution. Made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are 100% biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary either. Even our packaging is bio-degradable."

At about $50 for 12 brushes and international shipping, these aren't too much more expensive than a regular toothbrush. However, I wonder if the oversees shipping makes them equally wasteful when you stop to consider the fuel consumption. Maybe they can find a U.S. distributor for the toothbrushes? I nominate Brook Farm General in Brooklyn for the task.

I love these. They look good and are green. So much better than the expensive toothbrushes from Waterworks that are just pretty for pretty's sake. So right on — Brook Farm General should carry them!

Thanks for the comments, we would love to find a US distributor. If you know anyone that can take this on please get them to contact us.

They may be available from Canada soon currently under negotiations.

We think they are great and want to make a global difference.

All the best from Down Under.
