TePe GOOD Toothbrush – Regular
Introducing TePe GOOD – a unique toothbrush with the same qualities, design and feeling as TePe classic toothbrushes but made from 96% bio-based plastic.
HOW CAN SUGAR BE GOOD FOR YOUR TEETH?
…When it’s used to make a toothbrush!
The new TePe GOOD® toothbrush is made from sugar cane. Sugars from the sugar cane plant are converted to ethanol.
Ethanol is then converted into polyethylene which is used to manufacture the bio-plastic (green plastic) toothbrush.
WHY IS THIS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
Unlike fossil fuels, bio-based polyethylene (green plastic) made from sugar cane is renewable up to 96%. This means that sugar cane can be regrown within a year and be used to produce new bio-plastic.
Bio-based polyethylene also has a 95% carbon dioxide neutral footprint. This means that there is an almost negligible impact on greenhouse gas emissions.
TEPE GOOD® TOOTHBRUSH IS MADE FROM:
- Handle – bio-based polyethylene (based on sugar cane) which has a renewable content of 96%
- Filaments – bio-based polyamide (based on castor oil or ricinoil) from 100% renewable sources
THE TEPE GOOD PACKAGING IS MADE FROM:
- Blister pack – 70% recycled PET which has approx. 60% lower CO₂ emissions
- Backing card – from FSC approved cardboard.
- Both can be widely recycled in the UK.
GOOD NEWS FOR THE PLANET.
As with all TePe’s brushes, TePe GOOD® toothbrushes are manufactured in their factory in Malmö, and comply with stringent Swedish and European quality standards.
In Malmö 100% of the energy used to make the brushes is from ‘Green’ energy sources, including wind and hydro.
On the factory roof is the largest solar power plant in the city of Malmö, so on sunny days in Malmö TePe can produce all their toothbrushes from their own solar energy!
The UK offices are also powered by 100% green energy including from solar panels.
