What's up with the toothbrushes?
Made specially for etee, these FSC certified bamboo toothbrushes consist of two (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!
Tell me about the floss...
- 100% Mulberry Silk Floss acquired using the Ahimsa 'Peace' method
- Candelilla wax
- Natural Peppermint Flavouring
- 100% biodegradable cornstarch baggies
- Boxes printed with soy-based inks
We feel better using products which will leave a much smaller footprint on the planet and do a good job as well.
So much plastic avoided with no sacrifice. I was using Oral-B toothbrushes changing them every six weeks as the bristles wore. Etee bristles last two months, then you discard the bristles only as the waste and all else is compost. The replaceable head is brilliant. The handle is compost after about two years.
Chewpaste is brilliant. In the 1950s before plastic we used tooth powder. These tablets mean the right amount every time with no waste and no paste smears on the sink. Unlike the old powder, crunch the tablet twice and it foams in your mouth and brushes neatly and effectively. Chewpaste and floss leave only recyclables and no discarded plstic.
Better effectiveness, better ecology.
The toothbrush has a good grip handle. The bristles do their job. The part I have had to adjust to is the head. The way the corners rub against my inner lips and cheek walls feels different from my previous plastic toothbrush but I have begun to adjust to it after a week of use.
