Biodegradable & Food-Safe Toothbrush


Program: Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

We have the first fully biodegradable, food-safe, and environmentally friendly toothbrush. It uses wood as the bases, plant fibers as bristle, and adhesive and wax for protective coating. Specific listing of each is proprietary knowledge undisclosed for patent purposes. Our toothbrush has comparable strength, durability and price to existing manual plastic toothbrushes. We have successfully targeted the growing need and demand of sustainable product with less plastic waste.
