BZBrush Bamboo ToothBrush (Adult Size)
BZBrush Bamboo Toothbrush - colours and styles may vary It’s estimated that 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes are used worldwide every year, with the average person using 300 in their lifetime. Unfortunately, roughly 80 per cent of these end up in the sea, where they pose a risk to marine life and habitats. The toothbrushes listed here are all biodegradable bar their bristles, which are made from nylon which is free from BPA (a chemical used to make certain plastics that can seep into drinks, possibly leading to an increased risk of health problems such as increased blood pressure, heart disease and impaired brain development in children). The downside is that they will need to be plucked out with pliers before throwing your brush onto the compost heap, or repurposing your brush as a vegetable label or something else?

Dr Eddie Coyle, dentist and clinical director at Bupa Dental Care, supports the rise in bamboo toothbrushes but advises taking extra care to keep yours clean. “Once you finish brushing, rinse the bristles for 30 seconds to wash away remaining toothpaste or food debris, and avoid leaving your toothbrush in a warm, damp case or holder as this encourages the growth of microorganisms,” he says.
There is no hard and fast rule on how often you should replace a toothbrush, with Dr Coyle recommending changing yours every one to four months depending on the frequency of use. “When the bristles start to curve, bend or fold over, it’s time to get a new one.”
