What is the difference between a plastic and a bamboo toothbrush when it comes to cleaning our teeth?

Absolutely none. The type of material used to make the handle makes no difference whatsoever to the quality of brushing. By changing to Ocoah's bamboo toothbrush you are only changing the material of your toothbrush not the quality of your oral health.

 

Is Ocoah’s toothbrush dentist approved?

Yes, our toothbrushes are dentist-approved, we take oral health seriously here.

 

How do I look after my bamboo toothbrush?

Keep it dry! After each use, simply rinse toothpaste suds away with water and then dry the handle with a towel. Store your toothbrush on a dry surface and you are good to go!

 

Is Ocoah’s bamboo toothbrush 100% compostable?

Unfortunately not yet. Only the handle of our toothbrush is 100% compostable, not the bristles. That said, we are currently working to develop a 100% compostable toothbrush made from plants.

 

How do I dispose of my bamboo toothbrush?

The bristles and handle should be disassembled for a better disposal. Use a pair of pliers to remove the bristles from the head of the toothbrush. The bristles are very small so recycling may not work. So we recommend you dispose of the bristles in your household waste or contact your local recycling facility to see if there’s a solution for recycling the bristles.

The toothbrush handle will safely return to the soil within 6 months in a composting bin.  Of course the best way to dispose of your Ocoah toothbrush is to recycle it for other purposes. Among many other ideas, you can use your toothbrush as a plant prop or brush for outdoor work.

 

Where are Ocoah’s products made?

Our  toothbrushes are designed in Devon, in the UK and they are made in China. We decided to have our toothbrushes made in China because the raw material, bamboo, is found in abundance there.

 

Is bamboo actually environmentally responsible?

Bamboo is one of the most environmentally friendly crops that exists today. For starters, it is not only a renewable resource, but one that does so quickly. In fact, a bamboo plantation has a yield up to 25 times that of a forest. Bamboo does not require pesticides or artificial fertilizers. We get our bamboo from Anji, the hometown of bamboo in China. Our bamboo is Mao (Moso) Bamboo, it is one of the hundreds of bamboo species that panda bears don't consume, so production of our bamboo toothbrushes do not stop pandas from getting their food.

 

Do you ship outside of the UK?

Unfortunately not at the moment!
