Picture this. Count the number of products you own that use batteries. Multiply it by 7.3 billion. That’s roughly the number of battery-powered products we as a species use, and eventually discard. Only 1% of discarded batteries actually get recycled, so look at your electric toothbrush and ask yourself. Is a polluted earth an appropriate price to pay for clean teeth? There’s only one answer here really, and it’s a no! The Be. toothbrush aims at providing the experience of an electric toothbrush, but without the electric bit. Devoid of motors, and batteries, and circuit boards, the Be. is a pretty ingeniously made brush that uses common sense, rather than a lithium-ion battery.
Taking cues from an unlikely yet brilliant place, the Be. uses a wind-up mechanism we’ve seen being used for long in toys and timers. It simply converts one form of energy into another, allowing you to merely rotate a dial on its base that then winds up a mechanism within the toothbrush body, causing the head to vibrate as would any electric toothbrush.
The Be.’s creation was sparked by a need to solve the earth’s pollution crisis. Designed as a completely analog piece of highly effective dental equipment, the Be. rivals the best electric toothbrushes. Just two twists on its base are enough to power you through an entire brushing cycle, with the same (if not better) effectiveness of an electric toothbrush. The Be.’s body and bristles are a 100% recyclable and biodegradable too, so your teeth AND your planet stay clean!
The Be.’s battery-free approach isn’t just eco-friendly, it’s you-friendly too! It prevents the need to charge your toothbrush, or to replace batteries periodically. It also means the Be. can be easily carried on flights with zero hassle A snap-on case makes carrying the Be. around an absolute dream. Plus, with each Be. you get a one year’s supply of interchangeable and completely recyclable bristle-heads… That’s just dental! I mean mental!
