Frequently asked questions
What is Bigbluemarble ?
A huge & beautiful planet floating in the universe which we fondly call HOME. Needs saving & is calling out to all the eco-warriors. Also, bigbluemarble is a synonym for "Earth".
For a material to be sustainable, it must be abundant and easily replaced. As a grass that can grow up to 10 centimeters a day, bamboo is a prime raw material for eco-friendly products! Harvested bamboo can be completely replenished in two-weeks’ time. And because it’s naturally anti-microbial, it’s perfect for personal hygiene products like toothbrushes also, bamboo is more water-resistant than wood.
Can I recycle my toothbrush?
Absolutely. In fact, you can throw your used brush handle into the compost because bamboo is biodegradable. However, to maximize the hygienic properties of the brush, the bristles do include nylon, and they are not compostable. The bristles are easily removed with tweezers before composting the handle!
Is the packaging eco-friendly?
Yes it is. We really care about the environment, and we knew that our eco-friendly toothbrush had better have an eco-friendly package to go with it! The cardboard box and insert can go in the recycle bin.
How long does the bamboo handle take to decompose?
We estimate the handle to take somewhere between 6-8 months to decompose and go back into nature. We are currently doing our own research and tests, and we’ll keep you posted!
Do you ship internationally?
Unfortunately not, but dont worry we are working on that as we speak.
When should the bamboo toothbrush be replaced?
Dental associations worldwide recommend that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months.
