Where are your Toothbrushes produced?
They are made in China.
What type of bamboo is it and where is farmed?
We use only the best quality Moso bamboo, it’s farmed on an organic plantation in Henan Province, China which specifically grows bamboo for the production of bamboo toothbrushes.
Don’t Pandas eat bamboo?
Yes, they do, but not Moso bamboo. Moso bamboo leaves grow from 5 meters up and as pandas can’t reach them they don’t eat them.
How do you ship your products?
They are shipped from the factory in China using sea freight as this has a lower carbon footprint to air freight. When the goods arrive in the UK they are dispatched to our customers using Royal Mail second-class mail service.
What are the bristles made of and are they recyclable?
The bristles are made of Du Pont nylon 6 and they are recyclable, click here to watch how to dispose of them correctly. We would love to be able to offer you a 100% plastic free toothbrush but at the moment there are any other options out there, other than pig hair and that doesn’t really do it for us!
What kind of paint is used to colour the handles?
It’s a natural plant-based paint, so you can compost the handle safely.
Are the bristles soft, medium or hard?
The children’s bristles are soft and the adults are medium as recommended by dentists.
Is the packaging biodegradable/recyclable?
Yes, the packaging is both biodegradable and recyclable.
Can I buy in a store?
Yes, to see the list of stores we currently sell in please click here. If you are interested in stocking our premium bamboo toothbrushes, please get in touch here.
How often should I change my toothbrush?
Dentists recommend you change your toothbrush every 2 – 3 months, although this really depends on how hard you brush and how often. When the bristles loose shape and become frayed, their less effective at removing plaque so it’s time for a change.
How does the Ocean clean up donation work?
For every My Toosh sold, 10p is donated to Surfers against Sewage a UK based charity that inspire, unite and empowers communities to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife.
How do I care and dispose of My Toosh?
Much the same as your old plastic one, rinse the bristles after each clean and try to keep the handle dry.
To dispose of your bamboo toothbrush when you have finished it, just remove the bristles with pliers and pop them into your recycling bag, then the bamboo handle can be composted or used in many other creative ways.
