The problem: Every year countless used toothbrushes “disappear” into the sea, and that is a huge amount of plastic! This plastic does not degrade and therefore remains on our planet for decades, threatening the flora and fauna. Infinite amounts of fossil fuels are wasted for this purpose and in just a few decades these resources will be exhausted for good. In addition to a serious waste problem, people consume excessive quantities of essential raw materials which are not available in unlimited quantities.
The solution: Some problems are easy to solve. Just a few small changes are needed to make this huge waste and resource problem much smaller and bring tremendous benefits to people, the environment and the whole planet! Ben & Anna toothbrushes are made of environmentally friendly and sustainable bamboo. We only use the fast growing Moso bamboo which does not require fertilisers or harmful pesticides, nor is it a habitat or food source for pandas, so their territories are not endangered. With very low water consumption it is also an impressive oxygen producer. It’s natural antibacterial properties and the strong structure of its material make this natural resource particularly sustainable, safe and ecologically valuable. FSC certification is a matter of course. The brush heads are made of BPA-free, recycled nylon and thus once again support sustainability. Even though this small amount of nylon used is not biodegradable, we still consider a plastic saving of 96% per toothbrush to be convincing.
The packaging of the Equality toothbrush is made of sustainable kraft paper.
With every sale of Equality Toothbrushes Ben & Anna will donate 10p to the LGBT foundation.
