In my ongoing effort to cut down on the amount of plastic in my life, I thought I'd check out this toothbrush. Bamboo grows like crazy and is a great alternative to non-sustainable, non-biodegradable products. This one did not disappoint. It arrived in a paper box as shown in the photo, unlike generic toothbrushes packed in non-recyclable plastic packages. The handle is plenty long enough and slightly curved, I assume for ergonomics. I would prefer soft bristles rather than medium, but time and use will turn them soft anyway. The head is standard size. I would have preferred a slightly larger head, which is why I knocked off a star. But given all of its other attributes, I will definitely buy this toothbrush again. If Uppercut comes out with one with a larger head, it would be a definite 5-star product.
