bamboo toothbrush, eco floss and tongue cleaner
If you have teeth- you need a toothbrush and floss. If you have a tongue - you need a tongue cleaner too!
This hygiene pack combines 3 essential oral hygiene items to ensure a healthy and fresh mouth. Use your eco-floss first to clean in-between the gaps in your teeth. Then brush using your bamboo toothbrush. Spit the toothpaste- don't rinse. Finally, use your tongue cleaner to remove food debris and dead cells off the filaments on the tongue.
Bamboo Toothbrush (Adult)
Traditional plastic toothbrushes go to landfill and cannot decompose. This Bamboo Buddy toothbrush has a handle that is not just biodegradable; but actually compostable*!
The fine charcoal-tipped bristles, allows for effective plaque control in those hard to reach parts of the teeth.
Dentists recommend changing your toothbrush every 3 months, and this is no different.
The handle is beeswax coated to prevent water absorption and so prolong the life of your toothbrush.
(*bristles are made from nylon as these are the best for plaque removal. However they need to be removed and disposed separately to the compostable handle. We are in the process of developing biodegradable bristles, so watch this space!)
Eco-Floss with Reusable Dispenser
Flossing is an essential part of oral hygiene, which is too often forgotten. It's important to do regularly to maintain healthy gums and prevent decay from happening between your teeth.
Traditional plastic floss has go to landfill and cannot decompose. This Bamboo Buddy Natural Floss not just biodegradable; but actually compostable!
The ethically produced Ahimsa silk is the smoothest of the natural floss fibres and hence why we champion this.
When you run out, just buy a refill and reuse your dispenser.
Our stainless steel tongue cleaner just needs to be rubbed lightly down the surface of the tongue a couple of times after brushing. Don't press too hard, and don't rub too much otherwise your tongue will be sore. Wash off the debris in cold water and like the bamboo toothbrush, dry it off to ensure it lasts for a long time.
