Are bamboo toothbrush bristles biodegradable?
There are currently three types of bristles used in bamboo toothbrushes - Nylon, Boar and Biodegradable Vegan bristles.
Boar (pig) bristles are 100% biodegradable, however they're often obtained as by-products of the Chinese meat market and can pose serious ethical questions regarding treatment of animals.
Biodegradable vegan bristles are made from derivatives of castor oil. They are 100% biodegradable, however the bristles start breaking down within 10-14 days of use making them poor value for customers.
Nylon bristles. After much research and sample testing, Kappi opted for Nylon bristles for their durability and value. We recommend snapping the head off your old toothbrush when it's time to change.
How long does each toothbrush last?
Dentists recommend swapping toothbrushes every 2-3 months. After sample testing, Kappi recommend swapping out their bamboo toothbrushes every 3 months. A handy hint to improve the life of your toothbrush is to leave it soaking overnight in a glass of white vinegar every month or so. This freshens the bristles and removes most of the accumulated bacteria.
About The Brand
In 2017, Emily and Fred Carlstrom, two self-confessed partners in crime, identified a need for reusable alternatives to single-use plastics. They wanted things that were beautifully designed, effortlessly functional, and reasonably priced, while also taking care to preserve our natural reserve. And so, Kappi was born.
Since then, they have created a range of products that make it easier to replace everyday single-use plastics with affordable, functionally designed and stylish alternatives.
Kappi are passionate about spreading the zero-waste message. They've created the products you need to help minimise everyday waste!

Kappi have taken great care to eliminate as much plastic and waste from their supply and logistics chain as possible. One of their main successes to date includes ensuring products come to them wrapped in recycled paper and reused newspaper rather than individually packaged in plastic bags. They then reuse this paper packaging as padding when they ship out their products to customers. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Their products are as durable as they are beautiful. They believe in providing customers with a product that will stand the test of time.
