The first product that we started with at Nashonuma is our adorable and much-loved bamboo toothbrush. Our bamboo toothbrush was produced after months of research on design, durability, usability, practicality, and aesthetics.
It was a long and tricky phase but we managed to get past that and became one of the first few companies in Pakistan to launch eco-friendly toothbrush that has the potential to solve the plastic problem.
However, before we ask you to throw away your plastic toothbrush and replace it with our environmentally friendly and sustainable bamboo toothbrush, we must convince you that the plastic toothbrush is contributing significantly to environmental pollution (smog or any other name you may call it) in Pakistan.
Like the government banned plastic shopping bags not too long ago, it is imperative that we raise our voices to push the government to impose a ban on plastic toothbrushes as well.
Every year, more than 100 million toothbrushes are thrown away resulting in hundreds of thousands of tonnes of plastic waste. Without any proper recycling systems in place, the plastic toothbrush waste either goes to the landfill (where it stays forever) or it gets burnt to directly add more carbon to the atmosphere.
We understand that old habits are hard to get rid of. So we are prepared to play the long game. We will wait until the very last plastic toothbrush user in Pakistan switch to a more environmentally friendly alternative.
Now that we know how damaging are plastic toothbrushes to our environment, it would make sense to look at the benefits of our bamboo toothbrush so you can be certain of what you are buying before you decide to buy.
Our bamboo toothbrushes are an environment-friendly alternative to traditional plastic toothbrushes because they are natural plant-based (bamboo) and fully biodegradable. Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on the planet and so we don’t need to worry about running out any time soon.
The bamboo used to make our toothbrushes comes from a special bamboo species called mosu which is completely wild and organic. It grows naturally at a very rapid pace without the need to use irrigation, pesticides, and fertilisers. Therefore, it is the perfect material for our toothbrushes.
The bristles on our toothbrushes are 100% BPA free, but what does this mean? Our BPA free tynex nylon 6 toothbrushes are better for your health. We deliver the toothbrushes in kraft paper – a fully recyclable packaging.
With natural antimicrobial qualities, our bamboo toothbrushes ensure the growth of bacteria is very limited. This means that our toothbrushes are not only great for cleaning teeth but they also fight microbes.
However, despite the anti-microbial attribute of our toothbrush, we still recommend that you rinse it after use each time.
We spent months conducting research to come up with the best possible design and aesthetics for our bamboo toothbrush. If we say that our bamboo toothbrushes are the most adorable thing you can have in your bathroom, it wouldn’t be an improbable statement.
And we have put our heart into the packaging to make it not only completely plastic-free but also classy and unique. You can have one delivered to your address anywhere in Pakistan to validate what I have just said about the design of our toothbrush.
Bamboo toothbrushes are easy to carry. You can take them to any place you travel to. What’s more, is that we also provide a bamboo toothbrush travel case and bamboo toothbrush stand so you can keep your toothbrush safe and completely health-friendly no matter where you go – all without damaging the environment.
Whether you have always been eco-conscious or want to do something nice (and little) for the environment, buy our eco-friendly bamboo toothbrush from here. 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, and 4 months subscription available.
