Sumboom's professional manufacturer was established in 2006, covering 15,000 square meters with over 100 productions. They produce our 100% bamboo toothbrushes.
The handles are made of ethically sourced Mao bamboo, an eco-friendly sustainable material. The bamboo surface is heat treated by carbonisation, giving it a quality finish and good service life. The carbonisation finishing process provides water resistance, cracking and prevents the growth of microbes (bacteria and moulds) during normal use.
The toothbrushes can be disposed of safely by returning it to earth in compost or landfill. Both the bamboo and bristles will biodegrade into soil, without pollution.
Sumboom employees age between 26-44 years old. They're payed a living wage of about 7000 RMB, and work around 8 hours a day. Everyday the workers have an afternoon tea together and are allowed breaks when tired. They organise trips together, and big meals too.
