Toothbrushes 

Bamboo toothbrushes are seen everywhere now. What most people don't realise is that the bristles are made of nylon 6, which is a plastic that will never degrade.

The Curanatura ones we stock are the only fully degradable bamboo toothbrushes, which are suitable for home composting. The bristles are made of 90% bamboo and 10% nylon 4.

Nylon 4 is a preferred material for toothbrush bristles according to the International Federation of Dental Hygienists. Nylon 4 is a BPA and phthalate free, naturally biodegradable polyamide and is widely considered as one of the most tolerable plastics from a health point of view. 

The bamboo is grown in the producers own bamboo forest and not treated with any pesticides or chemicals. It took four months of research in 2018 to find the most sustainable toothbrushes.

Prices will vary with all products, not just sustainable items. The prices will often reflect the quality and ethics of the items. 

We try to make a conscious effort of making sure all the items we stock are absolutely necessary, being sustainable is much more than products and we try to give the best advice on reducing your impact on the environment. 

As you can see we do the hard work for you, allowing you to shop with peace of mind. We are not just a shop, we are a service, we educate, we are here to make changes.
