Eco-friendly toothbrushes seem to be all over the internet at the moment.
Whether they’re telling you about all your previous plastic toothbrushes still being on this planet. Or some brands offering you free eco-friendly toothbrushes – just pay shipping.
I kept seeing so many things in relation to them, but really I wanted to try it for myself to see if the brushes were, in fact, any good.
That’s how I came across the Humble Brush.
“Humble Brush is a toothbrush that will clean just as well and last just as long as your regular plastic toothbrush, with the added benefit of being better for the environment. With a 100% sustainable bamboo handle, Humble Brush is the eco-friendly and socially responsible toothbrush choice.”
“We chose to use nylon-6 because it has a lower hardness (which is good for your teeth) and a lower water absorption (which is good for keeping your brush hygienic) compared to other types of nylon. It’s a strong, durable and hygienic synthetic material. The carbon footprint of nylon is comparable to wool and the nylon-6 we will degrade over time.”
At first, I found it strange using the brush. The bristles were medium, but it took a few uses for it to feel like I was brushing normally. Whether I was brushing too hard or not – I’m not sure.
The handle is simple and easy to hold. If you’re used to a brush with a grip on the handle, this will be strange for you at first. I’ll admit my hand slipped a few times during the first two times of using it, but I got used to that quickly.
The brush cost me £4 in boots. But multiple stores sell them.
The Humble Co. also sell:
I’m highly interested in finding and trying both their toothpaste and chewing gum.
Overall I’ve been loving this brush and knowing it’s better for the environment makes it even better. I plan to use it for as long as possible and then grab myself a new one to replace it.
One thing I love about Humble Co. is all of their packagings are 100% recyclable.
Do you use an eco-friendly brush? Or have you considered trying one?
