Frequently Asked Questions

Why bamboo?


Great question! Bamboo as a base material has some great benefits. It is the fastest growing plant on the planet and can grow up to an astounding 35 inch (91cm) per day! Also, because it contains naturally-occurring antimicrobial agents, it does not need any fertilizers or pesticides. Furthermore, bamboo is a 100% compostable, making it a perfect substitute material for many plastic products.




What about your packaging? Is it biodegradable?


Absolutely! We at ECOFELLA try to be as ecofriendly as possible. That's why all our products are packed in biodegradable packaging. We do not include any plastics in our packaging.




Do you really plant a tree for every toothbrush sold?


Yes, we plant 1 tree for every bamboo toothbrush sold. That is our promise, not only to you, but to the planet as well. We aim to reforest areas that suffered from deforestation. Check out our 'Planting Trees' page for more info!





General

Are your products compostable or biodegradable?


Most of our products are entirely made of bamboo, a natural material. This makes them 100% compostable. Our bamboo toothbrushes on the other hand contain nylon bristles, which are not compostable. They should be removed before composting the bamboo handle.




Are your toothbrushes vegan?


Hell yeah! We LOVE animals!
We do not test our products on any animals, nor do we include any animal-based materials in our products or packaging.




How long does your toothbrush last?


Our bamboo toothbrushes will last just as long as your regular plastic ones. Dentists and Hygienists recommend changing your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months and to brush at least twice a day.




What are the toothbrush bristles made of?


Our bristles are made of nylon 6 - which is a type of plastic that can be recycled - and free of BPA. Unfortunately, they are not biodegradable. We know it is not the most ecofriendly material for the bristles as we try to be as sustainable as possible, but the only real plastic-free bristles available at the moment are made of boar hair. We are constantly on the lookout for more ecofriendly alternatives. If you happen to come across an alternative, feel free to shoot us a message :)




Where are your products made?


Our bamboo products are manufactured in China, home of the great moso bamboo.
It is sustainably sourced from a local bamboo forest, which regrows very fast (bamboo can grow up to 3 feet per day!).
All our bamboo is FSC-certified, which means that the sourcing of the bamboo meets the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council.
