Go Bamboo Toothbrush
The ultimate tooth cleaning device for the environmentally aware individual. The Go Bamboo Toothbrush handle is made of natural bamboo (not a bamboo laminate) sealed with an edible wax. The bristles are soft to medium stiffness, dual length, sharpened bristle, made from nylon 4, and they clean your teeth really well. The toothbrush comes packaged in a sealed recycled cardboard box.
Nylon 4 is a synthetic polymer, that has been shown to be vulnerable to bacterial activity specifically Pseudomonas strain ND-11. In activated sludge (sewage) or compost, nylon 4 breaks down in about 3-4 months.
When you've finished with your toothbrush you can put it to another use, cleaning your bike or other intricate object. You can find all sorts of additional uses for the bamboo of your toothbrush once it is no longer useful for your teeth, you can rest assured that it will break down in time and cause no harm to the environment!
