i have not yet found an alternative for TOOTH brushes. apart from not using a TOOTHBRUSH ever again instead i used my newly discovered ECO VEGAN toothstick.
i have used boar-bristle hairbrushes all my life. i have used boar-bristle toothbrushes for about 29 years. as a animal friender, for the last 3 years, i have been searching for evidence of humanely-harvested boar bristle. now that i am of the mind that even humanely-harvested hog bristle comes from animals who are still exploited because it is a commercial operation. if i had a pet pig, and i gave it a scratch and an occasional haircut, i know that my pig would feel happy to be of service to my need for brushes. i do not have a pet pig. i have at last found my alternatives – a stick for teeth and bamboo brush for hair.
NYLON has been a NO GO for me, for a couple of decades or so:
- nylon bristles ALWAYS scratch teeth enamel, and damage the hair, no exceptions.
- nylon is made from petroleum
i have found some alternatives to nylon and commercially shaved or killed & shaved boar/badger etc :
