Your smile is really important to us, we don’t want you to sacrifice your teeth to save the planet, which is why we’ve worked hard to ensure that your new biodegradable toothcare products are better than your old plastic ones. We believe in keeping it simple, so we won’t be trying to dazzle you with fancy colours and useless gimmicks. Our dental care range follows current dental recommendations for proper oral hygiene.
Our toothbrush bristles are soft – this is to stop you from damaging your gums during brushing and keeps your teeth strong and healthy. Many people insist on brushing their teeth with harder bristles because it feels like they’re doing a better job of scrubbing away debris; but all that scrubbing can damage your gums and enamel over time. Our brushes have a small head, so you can really spend time cleaning those hard to reach teeth, without it becoming uncomfortable. We’ve also added a wave shape to our bristles for more effective cleaning.
Dentists recommend you switch your brush every 2 – 3 months or whenever your brush is showing significant wear. An old toothbrush becomes home to lots of nasty bacteria, and frayed bristles are pretty useless at cleaning your teeth. With our affordable bamboo toothbrush subscription service, you’ll never forget to change your brush again!
Plastic pollution is devastating to the environment. Recent environmental sampling estimates that a total of 12.2 million tonnes of plastic enters the marine environment each year. This toxic, petroleum-based waste takes hundreds of years to break down and can be found circulating in ocean currents. It has quickly entered the food chain contaminating what we eat and affecting the water. A recent test showed that 83% of drinking water samples taken across the globe contain plastic pollutants. Our addiction to plastic is choking the earth and threatening all life on it.
Every year billions of plastic toothbrushes are thrown away. These are difficult to recycle and many go into landfill or watercourses ultimately ending up the sea. It’s fair to assume that every toothbrush you’ve ever used in your life is still somewhere on Earth, leaching harmful pollutants into the soil and water. Other common dental products are also plastic based and discarded on a regular basis. That is why our range doesn’t finish with the toothbrush, we’re constantly rolling out new eco-friendly dental care products to add your bathroom cabinet

Changing the way
we think about
We started Bristle™ to try to reduce the obscene amount of plastic wasted as a result of our dental care habits in the UK. We deal with toothcare products, it’s what we’re good at. But we’re also into other ways to reduce plastic wastage.
