Bamboo Toothbrush with Replaceable Head
I am happy with the toothbrush so far, but if given the choice, would prefer softer bristles as my gums are sensitive. You guys are good at turning feedback into product upgrades, so please take a crack at this one. Softer plant-based bristles, please :-)
The bristles are soft, which is supposed to be better for your gums and teeth anyways, but that doesn't mean they're fragile. This brush will last as long as any other. Make sure you rest your brush in a place where it can fully dry though. Bamboo is antimicrobial, but not immune to germs if left soaking wet.
The soft bristles are perfect. They don't harm my teeth and gums.

Introducing the one & only etee Bamboo Toothbrush with a Replaceable Head! Hold up - WHAT!?! It's true. The paparazzi can't get enough of these beauties and they're a SERIOUS hot commodity around here.
Each toothbrush consists of 2 (fully assembled) parts - first you've got your rounded toothbrush handle, whose base is dipped in water-based paint (the paint helps to protect from any water damage that you get at the base of other bamboo toothbrushes). Added to that is the detachable toothbrush head with 100% plant-based bristles. The total length of the toothbrush is 7.5". Hooray!
The rounded toothbrush handle is made of FSC certified bamboo and the bristles are made from castor bean oil, which is the most eco-friendly alternative on the market today - double hooray!
What else is in my toothbrush?
A metal staple is used to clamp the the plant-based bristles into the brush, keeping them from falling out you're brushing your chiclets! It's a normal part of a toothbrush, and even plastic ones have staples in them too! When you're ready to replace your toothbrush head (dentists suggest every 3 months), simply replace with a new head and keep the handle. To dispose of the used head, you can also remove the bristles from the head using a pair of pliers, which will also remove the staple, and compost the bamboo. The bristles are not yet biodegradable, but fear not, we're working on a solution!
