We're working with a polymer company to test their marine-compostable PHA bioresin and will have access to the material after testing is complete. Our goal is to replace the PLA material in our product line with backyard and marine degradable PHA.
Another initiative for 2020 is a customer returns program where we recycle the materials in our products through existing waste streams. Plan to roll it out widely after testing.
Other Sustainability Notes
Our flagship technology is an electric toothbrush that does not need batteries or electricity, yet performs with the efficacy of a best in class electric toothbrush. (We call it the Be. Brush - Be. stand for Beyond Electric) We will be eliminating billions of batteries from use and improper disposal with no compromise to performance or dentist recommendation.
