A few months ago, you got yourself a brand new bamboo toothbrush, you used it and loved it.

Now what?

You’re ready to compost it!
Follow our easy steps below to do so.

You will need :

-1 pair of pliers
-Your old bamboo toothbrush
A dash of elbow grease 😃

Let's get started.

Simply pluck the bristles of your toothbrush with your pliers.
Don’t try to pull too many in one go.
We recommend making a slight rolling movement when pulling.
Much easier, right?

Note: You can recycle the bristles, but it’s best to check with your local recycling center first. Then you’re ready to either compost or reuse your bamboo handle!

Some of our favorite ways to reuse your old toothbrush :

Make a garden marker

You will need to remove the bristles first. Then, simply write the name of the plant or the herbs in the handle and stick it into the soil.

Create arts and crafts

Can be used in replacements of popsicle sticks for all your kids' awesome, ahem, school projects 😉

Clean small stuff

Before plucking the bristles you can use it to clean keyboards, around faucet, jewelry, clothing stains, scrub shoes, etc.
