scho - The Truly recyclable Toothbrush

Normal toothbrushes are made of three different plastics and are therefore not recyclable. A toothbrush should be used for no longer than three months. As the toothbrush scho is a monomaterial product, it enables the consumer to recycle it easily. The handle and bristles of this toothbrush consist of one and the same material: polyamide. It is about creating a circular economy, which focuses on reusing the resulting waste. In the designed circle of scho, a toothbrush is recycled to a toothbrush.
