Tear-off toothbrush / Toothbrush

Tear-off toothbrush

The number of refugees is increasing. Many refugees are exposed to poor hygiene as relief goods are not well distributed. This is an innovative toothbrush made to help such socially disadvantaged people. This toothbrush can cover large number of refugees for its affordable price and portability as no handle is attached. An Eco-friendly band on the toothbrush makes it easy to brush one’s teeth or the child’s teeth as one can stick his/her finger on it. There is an elastic hole on the bottom of silicon body where one can put a twig or stick to use it as a handle. Several brushes are attached, so one can tear off and use one whenever needed.
