Eco-Friendly Toothbrush Lets You Avoid Plastic Waste With Replaceable Bamboo Bristles

Everloop Sustainable Toothbrush by NOS

The average person replaces their toothbrush every 3-4 months, resulting in around 20-30 billion plastic toothbrushes tossed into landfills each year. To tackle the issue, Mexico City-based design consultancy NOS created a sustainable toothbrush, called Everloop, with a handle that’s actually made of recycled plastic from disposed toothbrushes. Not only that—it also features a clever clipping mechanism that allows you to replace the 100% natural bamboo bristles.

Most toothbrushes that claim to be eco-friendly—such as those made from wood—often use synthetic nylon bristles, which of course contribute to plastic waste. The Everloop toothbrush is different though, as each part is made from either recycled or natural material. NOS says, “The bristles that are disposed have no plastic, which makes them 100% compostable compared to the disposable heads in the market with plastic components.”

While the recycled plastic handle can be used as long as you need, the bristles are designed to be changed every 3 months. Every Everloop toothbrush comes with 8 sets of bristles, giving it a life span of 2 years. Even the thermoformed paper pulp packaging is made from 100% compostable material.
