THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BRISTLES
The bristles are made from BPA free nylon.
Nylon IS a type of plastic (despite what some companies will say) but it CAN be recycled in your plastic recycling bin.
Some companies will also tell you that BPA plastic/nylon is biodegradable. While it will eventually break down over around 30 years, it will also leach harmful chemicals into the earth as it does so and so it must be recycled.
BPA is a chemical sometimes used to make plastics which can seep out chemicals that can be harmful.
Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. Additional research suggests a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure.
HOW TO DISPOSE OF YOUR TOOTHBRUSH
To ensure the ecological footprint stays small, it is highly advised that when the toothbrush is at the end of its usefulness. You must pluck the bristles from the brush using pliers or similar.
The handle can then be disposed of in your compost/green/food waste bin and the bristles can go in your plastic recycling waste.
