Minka Bamboo Toothbrush used to be produced locally. Unfortunately we don’t produce enough bamboo to sustain the demand so we had to make a decision. We visited different bamboo farms in South East Asia, luckily we found one that passed our quality check. We closely monitor from harvesting to production to make sure that you only use the best for you and your family.
No. We use the same bristles dentists recommend. The bristles are made of nylon, therefore, they are recyclable but not biodegradable. We’re still in the research process of finding natural/biodegradable bristles. Another alternative would have been to use animal (pig) hair. […..] We knew that this alternative wouldn’t appeal to you and you might switch back to plastic toothbrush.
Our soaps are handmade with natural ingredients and organically grown fruits, grains and coconut leaves. A portion goes to local hard working farmers. Help us provide livelihood to our farmers by purchasing our organic soap line!
Yes. Kraft paper is 100% recyclable.
