Oral healthcare is an important part of children’s daily routine. A toothbrush is something they use several times every single day and hence it should be comfortable to use, not expose any danger either to your child´s health nor to our environment.
BENEFITS OF BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH
Very easy – did you know that nearly every single plastic toothbrush made, is still out there in the world somewhere, living on as a piece of trash? So make the switch!
WHAT IS CINK BIODEGRADEBALE TOOTHBRUSH MADE OF?
Cink kids bamboo toothbrush has a handle made of 100% biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo. The bamboo is antibacterial and a rot-resistant material so it’s very well suited for this purpose.
The quality bristles are made of soft, BPA-free nylon 6. The reason we use nylon 6 and not biodegradable fiber is because there is yet no biodegradable fiber that is as effective when it comes to taking care of your oral health.
IMPORTANT TO KNOW
- Recommended age: 1,5-7 years old
- Our toothbrushes have been approved in accordance with the CE-standards and FDA regulations.
- Since the bristles are not compostable you have to remove the bristles and dispose of them separately from the toothbrush handle.
There are two different methods to remove them:
1) Snap the whole toothbrush head off with a hammer
2) Pull them out with pliers
The bristles can then go into your plastic recycling, but as they are so small and easily lost, we recommend first putting them inside another plastic item you are recycling, like food packaging or a bottle.
The handle of your toothbrush is 100% biodegradable, and can be disposed of in an industrial composter, where it will break down in a few weeks. Or just put it in your home composter if you have one.
Even if you just throw it into your normal rubbish and the toothbrush ends up in landfill, it will still biodegrade in a few years.
Österlen, South of Sweden on a crispy cold October day. Small, dusty country roads connecting the steel gray ocean with the wide rye fields ready to be harvested. Trucks loaded with beets and crops off all different kinds. As the fog rolls in over the landscape we return to the small brick cottage and snuggle up in the sofa in front of the open fire with a glass of wine in our hand. This is were an idea is born!
