We are wrapt to announce a change in the…ah…wrapping…of our bamboo toothbrushes! The brushes are now contained within a light paper wrapper and inserted into an unbleached cardboard box. The pack of 12 also come in an unbleached cardboard box. The packaging can either be recycled with your paper recycling, composted, however, I find the 12 pack box really handy for holding all sorts of things and for sending small packages in so tend to hang on to them.
We launched the new packaging at the Nelson Eco Show last weekend where it was very well received and lots of people took the opportunity to stock up with brushes that our children’s children won’t have to live with. The brushes are made from bamboo which, as anyone trying to get rid of it from their garden will testify to, is remarkably fast growing and self renewing. The bristles are made from nylon 4 which is a biodegradable material so the brushes can be safely composted. They’re available individually or in a pack of 12 in the Rubbish Free Store.
