This beautiful bamboo toothbrush has a splash of color in Moss Green on the end. The handle is 100% FSC certified as sustainably forested Moso Bamboo.
Moso bamboo is fast growing (up to a meter per day), earth and water wise friendly, sustainable and natural material, as well as anti-microbial.
Truthbrush is dipped in a colored paint, which has been tested according to REACH legislation. Each brush is then given a coat of plant-based oil to give it a beautifully smooth and water resistant finish.
The bristles are medium and made of 62% plant based castor bean oil and 38% nylon. This means 62% less plastic. (For a 100% soft castor bean oil bristle, go here.) Note that these bristles are not held in by mounded plastic so on occasion a bristle may loosen. If this occurs, just pull it out and dispose of. This is another sign it’s a natural toothbrush.
The packaging is also fully recyclable and Truthbrush 100% carbon offsets 100% of their shipping.
This toothbrush goes well with a zero waste bamboo toothbrush holder.

SHIPS FROM Washington State, U. S. A.
- Do not leave your brush laying in water
- Let your brush dry out between uses
- Though not necessary, you may occasionally rub your brush with a plant based, food grade oil to restore it’s sheen. Beeswax is another great option for a non-plant based wood conditioner.
GREAT UPCYCLE IDEAS
Once it’s time to replace your toothbrush, give it a second life before disposal. Used toothbrushes are great for cleaning in tight spaces and some great other uses too.
Here are a few places we have found them great to use:
- The tight spaces around faucet handles
- Shower and Sliding Patio Door Tracking
- Those pesky vent slats on your oven and dishwasher
- The “seams” on your kitchen or bathroom cabinets that can collect dust and grime
- Detailing inside your automobile
- Fingernail Brush
- Tight spaces and corners inside your refrigerator drawers and shelving
- Paint stirrers
- Plant markers
- Seed Dibblers with inches marked off
- Toy stirrers in play kitchens
- Campfire Kindling
- Arts and Crafts Projects
