I received two WooBamboo! toothbrushes to review. You might be thinking…
Yeah, and who cares about a toothbrush!??
Well, me. I do. And maybe you should, too.
From WooBamboo!’s website…
There are over 7 billion people in the world, most of which brush their teeth with a typical plastic toothbrush. What is overlooked, however, is that most of these people go through several toothbrushes a year, equaling an incredible amount of waste in our oceans and landfills.
Wow, now that’s a perspective, eh!??
The Moso bamboo used in these toothbrushes is grown organically, with absolutely no chemicals or pesticides at all. A non-toxic toothbrush!
Sounds a lot better than the BPA plastic most of us have been putting into our mouths and into landfills, eh?
This bamboo is very sustainable, too, as bamboo grows at a very quick rate. Oh…and this is not the type of bamboo that pandas eat, so don’t worry about cutting into their food supply. 😉
Also, many of you may have bamboo cutting boards. Why? Not only do they work very well (they are durable), but bamboo is also antimicrobial. You won’t have any bacteria growing on your toothbrush.
Whew! That all sounds good to me!
Yeah, but what about the bristles?
The bristles are high quality Dupont Tynex. When you are done with your toothbrush, simply remove the recyclable bristles (that’s right…recycle them!) and know that the handle of your old toothbrush will biodegrade. Yup, just toss it into your compost pile.
My personal experience…
My husband and I have used both over the past month. I prefer the slim handle, as I have a smaller mouth than he does.
We didn’t need a toothbrush to tell us that.
Hahaha!!! Just teasin’, Lover.
At first, the bamboo did feel a little odd in my mouth.
I mean, I’ve been using toxic, BPA-filled toothbrushes all of my life, so yes…the bamboo was different.
After about 4 brushes, I was used to it and didn’t even notice.
Actually, that’s not true. I do notice. I think about it each time I brush.
Hey, this isn’t a toxic, plastic, BPA, landfilling toothbrush in my mouth. Nice!
My teeth are clean and feel great after brushing. The bristles reach hard to reach places, which is important to me.
My ONLY (very small) concern is that I did lose two bristles in the past month, which is more than I lose with other toothbrushes.
Is that a HUGE concern to me? No; two bristles is nothing.
In fact, after doing a bit of digging around I found that this is a rare occasion, but normal.
They do not use glue to secure their bristles, only pressure. I actually really like that!!!
Would I purchase these in the future?
Yes, absolutely. I WILL purchase these in the future.
