the team at NOS has developed a solution to one of the biggest culprits of plastic pollution — toothbrushes. based on the main concept of replacing the bristles rather than throwing the entire brush away, the everloop toothbrush offers a more sustainable option to maintaining your pearly whites.

after analyzing different options on the market, NOS came up with a clipping mechanism to replace bamboo bristles. this mechanism allows the user to open and close the head of the toothbrush, in order to insert a new set of bristles. the bristles are made from bamboo and the body of the brush is also made of recycled plastic from disposed toothbrushes.

the bristles that are disposed have no plastic, which makes them 100% compostable compared to the disposable heads with plastic components that are currently on the market. each toothbrush comes with 8 sets of bristles which based on the 3 months lifespan of a a normal toothbrush makes everloop’s lifespan a minimum of 2 years.

everloop’s life cycle

 

 

in addition to the toothbrush itself, NOS has also designed the packaging to be made out of thermoformed 100% compostable paper pulp. the shipping carbon footprint is lowered based on the whole life cycle of the pack.
