Bamboo Toothbrush - How does this work?
For full info - see our blog post
Environmental Toothbrush, a great option but the bristles are made from Nylon, meaning they do not biodegrade.
Curunatura are a Slovakian company producing a natural bamboo toothbrush, from sustainably grown bamboo. The bristles are made of decompostable fibres meaning the whole toothbrush is biologically degradable. Nylon 4 is a BPA and phthalate free, naturally biodegradable polyamide and is widely considered as one of the most tolerable plastics from a health point of view. 90% of the brush is bamboo, with Nylon 4 used in the bristles. The packaging is also compostable - brown paper and cardboard.
Uncaptive, not only offer a 100% bamboo toothbrush but are also a homegrown business based right here in Newcastle. We are delighted to have teamed up with Uncaptive to offer their toothbrushes to our customers as of mid August. This ethical toothbrush is 100% Biodegradable, from handle to bristles. The bristles are infused with charcoal to absorb bacteria, cleaning teeth deeply. Handle and Bristles ethically produced from FSC certified Mao bamboo!
Eco Friendly Refills at The Paddock
We are now able to offer refills in store, where you can bring your own bottle along to the Farm Shop and pay for the item your are buying without purchasing yet another plastic bottle! If you wish to order a refill with your veg box, please leave out an empty bottle with your crate for our driver to take away. This must be clearly labelled with your name, the item you would like it to be refilled with for example, washing up liquid and the ml. Our driver will return this to the workroom, where it will be refilled and added to your next veg box. We don't yet have a system for ordering the refills online but please pop into our farm shop or email us email@example.com for more info - prices are listed below.
