The bristles on the Boie USA toothbrush are made from a rubber like material called thermoplastic elastomer. TPE combines the properties of rubber (soft and pliable) with the benefits of thermoplastic. The result is a flexible and recyclable material.
Both our head and handle fall under recycling code number 7. Please note that not all local waste facilities have the capability to recycle these materials.
Because of that, we also run an in-house return and recycle program! You can ship your used toothbrush and replacement heads directly to us, we'll then forward them to our partners who have full recycling capabilities for all of our products. Please email us at email@example.com for more information.
For orders being shipped within the United States, we partner with USPS.
For international orders, we partner with UPS Mail Innovations. Once the package is in the country it is being shipped to, UPS Mail Innovations will transfer your package over to the local post service.
