Natboo (Natural Bamboo) Brush
Our toothbrush handle is made of Mao Bamboo, an rapidly renewable* resource. Bamboo grows extremely fast with minimal care and without replanting. It is the fastest growing plant in the world and can grow 1-to-4 inches in a day and regrows quickly after being cut down, making it the number 1 renewable resource. Since the plant's health is improved by cutting, bamboo can be re-harvested every three years without any harmful effects on the environment.
Bamboo has a unique antibacterial quality due to an antimicrobial bio-agent called "bamboo kun" which is found naturally in its fiber. This Kun makes bamboo a naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and odor resistant element. Bamboo also has the least amount of carbon footprint in its harvesting and production process (compared to hardwood).
When compared to plastic toothbrushes, there's really no question that Bamboo is better for the environment. Plastic production releases toxins into the environment, it also doesn't biodegrade, instead it will break down into increasingly smaller pieces before eventually making it's way into our food and water sources.
*Bamboo earns the moniker of a "rapidly renewable" resource as opposed to a plain old "renewable" resource because it grows extremely fast, especially when compared to wood.
