Believe us when we say we’ve looked for hundreds of options. But the truth is that the only “all-natural” option that exists up to now, are bristles made of animal hair (pig, horse, even goat). Being that we like to keep our products Vegan, we opted to make our bamboo toothbrush from Nylon. Nylon is a highly recyclable material, that is very resistant and easy to clean. We know its not perfect, but it’s definitely the best option out there.
