A BRUSH WITH NATURE
BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSHES FEEL SO MUCH NICER: Holding a bamboo toothbrush in your hand just feels nice! The quality of the wood and delicate design is really noticeable.
JUST AS GOOD AS A PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSH: There is no difference in brushing quality at all. The fibres used to make these brushes are made from 62% castor oil and 38% nylon. A tiny bit of nylon is needed in order to ensure brushing quality.
RECOMMENDED BY DENTISTS: Many dentists are getting on board with bamboo toothbrushes due to the need of changing your toothbrush every three to four months. Because the quality of the bristles is what matters there is no reason to stick with a plastic toothbrush anymore.
DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE PANDAS!: These brushes are made with Moso bamboo, which is a type of bamboo that Pandas can’t eat, grown in a sustainable forest.
Every year over a billion plastic toothbrushes is thrown away worldwide, ending up in landfill, in the sea or washed up on a beach. Using a bamboo toothbrush with a biodegradable handle is a small change but together we can make a big difference. This beautiful toothbrush is made with organic bamboo, the perfect material for a toothbrush as it is beautiful to look at, warm to touch and fully biodegradable. The natural antibacterial and antifungal properties of bamboo mean this toothbrush is very hygienic too. Bamboo is resistant to natural pests, so it is farmed organically.
This Baby Truthbrush, perfect for children under 8, is made from Moso bamboo, a type of bamboo which is inedible to pandas, so this product is not detrimental to these beautiful animals, and it all comes from a sustainable forest in China.

HOW TO USE
- Just help your child brush their teeth, or encourage them to do it themselves, as they would with any other toothbrush, but tell them this one is much better for the environment!
- For the first few days, they may tell you the feel of the natural bamboo instead of plastic seem a bit unusual, but soon they won't be able to imagine using anything else.
- Occasionally a bristle may fall out - don't panic! This is simply a sign that they are using a handcrafted brush made in the traditional way - not with bristles moulded into plastic!
Each Truthbrush is hand wrapped in tissue paper and a recyclable cardboard pillow pack. Shipping is carbon neutral to minimise environmental impact.

Truthbrush was born out of the idea that beautiful things can also be eco-friendly.
Founders Catherine and Catherine decided to combine their expertise as a hospital surgeon and a fashion buyer, and designed the Truthbrush to look beautiful in your home as well as being a great toothbrush.
