Bamboo toothbrushes are on the market but they all have the same issue. They take a long time to remove the bristles and require tools that are not always easily accessible or with you.
We decided to develop a better way. Our toothbrush has removable bristles that can be removed by simply pulling them out of the handle of the brush with your fingers and replacing them with a new set!
This bamboo toothbrush is ergonomically designed to make the process of brushing your teeth easy and efficient.
The smoothly finished handle is made to feel comfortable in your hand and mouth while brushing, as well as prevent you from applying too much pressure on your gums when brushing your teeth.
The Ocean Rebuild Bamboo Toothbrush is the first of its kind!
Our bamboo toothbrushes are made from all-natural materials derived from plants. Our toothbrush handle is made from 100% Moso bamboo handle which is a renewable resource and can be composted at home once used.
The bristles are made from a bio-based polymer derived from castor oil, while the toothbrush base is made from PLA derived from cornstarch, making it an easier choice for the environment when compared to traditional plastic made from crude sources.
In saying that both the bristles and the base will be able to compost in a commercial composting facility and break down within 3 months. This makes it a more environmentally friendly choice when it comes to plastics in contrast to traditional plastics that can take centuries to decompose.
Not only does this make our toothbrush more earth-friendly, but also cruelty-free, vegan friendly, BPA-Free, and non-toxic.
Ocean Rebuild, founded by myself Matthew Kouznetsov, realized that 1 billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year in the United States alone, which creates 50 million pounds of waste annually! So, I decided to take action to solve such a daunting statistic!
After realizing the environmental impact of conventional toothbrushes, I made the switch to a bamboo toothbrush and was happy with it until I realized I had to remove the bristles from the toothbrush head to compost the handle.
This was a difficult process, so I began searching for a more suitable solution. After testing other bamboo toothbrushes with a so-called removable head, I found that they were too flimsy and didn't feel very premium while using them.
Thus, I created my own product—the Ocean Rebuild Toothbrush—which features an innovative design that allows users to easily remove and replace their brush heads while still keeping the toothbrush earth friendly!
