Help un-plastic the planet, one toothbrush at a time
Our range of eco-friendly toothbrushes
Take a peep at our environmentally friendly toothbrushes made from sustainably sourced. Each toothbrush is eco-friendly, BPA-free and great for teeth cleaning and oral hygiene.
Why ditch plastic?
Australian's discard 30 million plastic toothbrushes every year which end up in landfills and pollute waterways, taking as long as 500 years to degrade. Yikes. Our throwaway culture has a mounting environmental cost that can be offset if we start making better decisions around consumption.
Ecoy is based in Brisbane on the Aussie east coast. Our ambition is to do away with single-use plastics. But we also enjoy weekend getaways to the beach and explore our beautiful habitats just like you!
Yes! Our toothbrushes are plant-based as they are made from biodegradable material. After composting, it biodegrades from 3 months to 4 years depending on climate conditions.
Bamboo as a material is sustainable and eco-friendly, being able to grow without harmful chemicals or pesticides. It's technically part of the grass family and is one of the fastest growing species on the planet. These benefits also apply to our toothbrushes which are proudly BPA-free and FSC Certified.
Yes. Our bristles are made of nylon which are a type of plastic that can be recycled. If you come across a toothbrush with boar hair (otherwise called pig hair) on the brush head, you are looking at a product that isn't cruelty free. While boar bristles are technically eco-friendly, they aren't animal friendly.
This depends on the toothbrush. our toothbrushes for example can be composted by removing the nylon bristles and composting the handle. This is because bristles are made of nylon which is derived from plastic. The toothbrush bristles are still considered BPA free and can be recycled. We have a guide on how to recycle your toothbrush. Check it out if you want to learn more.
3 to 4 months depending on how well you take care of the toothbrush. Make sure to store toothbrushes in a light, dry condition. Replacing your toothbrush quarterly is an easy way to improve your oral care routine as old toothbrushes carry a lot of bacteria and possibly even mould!
A lot. They are produced using fossil fuels and take up to 500 years to break down in landfills and waterways. During that multi-century process, plastic toothbrushes cause massive pollution and a lasting negative impact on our environment.
We certainly do! First, in order to qualify, you must spend over $50 on our products. A free shipping coupon will then be automatically applied at checkout.
To our knowledge, there aren't any other toothbrushes which are truly sustainable. A lot of competitors offer toothbrushes made of corn starch or PLA but these are quasi plastic products which can only biodegrade when composted at a commercial facility. This rule extends to any PLA product by the way. The toothbrush really is the king (or queen!) of eco-friendly toothbrushes.
Being eco-friendly is a commitment to the planet across all areas of your life. We wrote an article covering 100 ways you can live more environmentally friendly which you can read here.
