This is really flexible and useful brush for fixed appliance patients. Medium bristle with 'v-cut' to go around an appliance.
The handle is made from bamboo and is fully biodegradable. The bristles are made from nylon 6 and recyclable. (Nylon 6 is a recyclable nylon but as the quantities are so small kerbside recycling can’t realistically deal with it). We recommend the bristles are shaved off or pulled out and the handle composted or re purposed and the bristles put in the household waste/rubbish. This reduces the plastic content of the toothbrush by more than 99% by weight.
The box is cardboard and can be either recycled or composted. The glue to keep the box together is rice glue and the ink on the box vegetable ink.
