recycling and disposal
Don't believe us - believe the numbers
Did you know that in Germany alone we throw away over 145 million toothbrushes every year? We want to combat this problem as sustainably as possible and need your support. This planet is our home, after all.
Environmentally conscious disposal of brush heads and accessories
For optimal oral hygiene, we recommend replacing your toothbrush attachment after two months. The brush heads for the KOA V2 sonic toothbrush are made from renewable raw materials and are biodegradable. To make it compostable, simply remove the organic plastic interior and castor oil bristles. Find out from your local authorities which bin you can dispose of the attachment in. This varies from place to place.
Environmentally conscious disposal and recycling of the KOA V2 sonic toothbrush
So that the brush can be recycled properly, please hand it in at a municipal collection point for old electrical devices. In certain cases, we can also carry out repairs outside of the warranty for a flat rate.
