What should you look out for when buying a bamboo toothbrush?

The right bamboo toothbrush

Would you like to do something good for the environment in your everyday life by avoiding plastic waste and living more ecologically sustainable? Then switch to a bamboo toothbrush , which is made from renewable raw materials.

But there are also a few things to keep in mind. You can find out all this in this article on bamboo toothbrushes .

If you first want to know which toothbrush is best for you, we have summarized the most important aspects in our toothbrush comparison .

1. Where does the bamboo come from and is it certified?

Sustainability is often advertised, although the bamboo used is not processed sustainably. Ideally, the bamboo is grown in China, due to the natural climate, and processed there directly in the vicinity of the plantation. This avoids emissions during transport and reduces the ecological footprint.

2. Processing and quality of the surface

You should brush your teeth for two minutes each morning and evening. Poor workmanship on your bamboo toothbrush can result in you catching a splinter or the insides of your cheeks becoming irritated and inflamed. When buying, make sure that the surface is sanded down.

3. Sustainable features

If you use a manual toothbrush, you are likely to throw it away after two to three months. With the bamboo manual toothbrush from bamtoo you can easily replace the brush head and thus save 50% on plastic waste! After all, sustainability can also be simple.

4. Appropriate bristle strength

Everyone is different, which is why it is important to choose a bamboo toothbrush that meets your needs and does not damage your teeth and gums. Ideally, the ends of the bristles should be rounded and not too hard to protect the gums. However, that is entirely up to you.

5. Electrical alternatives

Dentistry has proven that electric toothbrushes clean significantly better than conventional manual toothbrushes. The sonic toothbrush in particular has recently stood out and convinces with a particularly good cleaning performance. Teeth and gums are still protected.
