Philosophy: Most toothbrushes are made from plastic (which is made from oil), and because we are advised to change our toothbrush regularly for hygiene, each time we throw one away we are contributing to plastic waste going to landfill.
Yaweco makes eco friendly toothbrushes to help reduce the amount of plastic you throw away. To start with you buy one toothbrush with a reusable handle and in future you just need to replace the head every 3 months. This eco friendly toothbrush is great idea to help reduce waste and works out much cheaper than your usual toothbrush too.
History and Origin: Yaweco Toothbrushes are made in Germany. They will save you money because each replacement head will be cheaper than your usual brush. They help reduce your impact on the environment as you throw away less plastic.
They are available in natural bristle (non vegan) or nylon bristle (vegan) and the heads fit securely and don’t come off while you’re cleaning your teeth.
The bristles in the natural bristle brush are boar hair. The animal is not hurt in the process; it is shorn like a sheep.
Why We Chose Them: We love the idea of making little changes to everyday items to make them more environmentally friendly without compromising on quality or effectiveness. Using a Yaweco toothbrush is one simple way we can all reduce our impact on the planet.
Who Would Like Them? Everyone! There is an excellent choice of bristles on offer, so whether you have sensitive gums and tend to choose a softer brush, or you prefer a firmer set of bristles, you’ll find a toothbrush to suit.
