Did you know ?
The disposable toothbrush represents in France 1400 tons of waste per year of non-recycled and non-recyclable plastics because they are made of mixed plastics. A conventional toothbrush weighs about 18 grams. 18 grams of plastic therefore go into the bin every 3 months, while only the bristles of the brush are worn out.
The Caliquo company has therefore decided to act by proposing ecological toothbrushes to get out of the era of all plastic by creating everyday objects that are sustainable and/or zero waste.
The refillable head system was developed in 2013 and it allows their toothbrushes to remain in our bathrooms for a long, long time! Thanks to this concept, plastic waste is divided by 8: only 8 grams per year are thrown away, which is less than a single disposable toothbrush. The used nylon heads are then recycled.
What happens to the nylon head of this brush ?
Caliquo has decided to work with Terracycle to offer you truly zero waste products that do not negatively impact the environment!
Terracycle gives a second life to objects that are difficult to recycle in conventional circuits, objects that would have ended up in landfill or incineration. The nylon in your toothbrush bristles and the ABS in the base of your Caliquo refill heads are among the materials that are difficult to recycle.
Your used refills are collected in the field through certain Caliquo partner shops that have chosen to be collection points. For the moment, there is no list of these collection points, as each shop decides independently on their participation.
However, you should know that all Day by Day bulk shops that Caliquo works with offer collection.
- If the shop you bought from offers to collect your used heads, you will just have to put your own refills in their special recycling container (whatever the box)! Once the retailer has filled the box, they send it back to us. We store it all at Caliquo, in our zero waste box which, once full, is sent to Terracycle for recycling!
- If it is not, don't hesitate to suggest it to them :-)
Soft bristles or medium bristles ?
The French Union for Oral Health (UFSBD) recalls the importance of favoring toothbrushes with soft bristles. Soft-bristled toothbrushes are less harsh on tooth enamel and gums. They are therefore particularly recommended for people suffering from sensitive gums or teeth. Soft bristles are also those that pass best through the interdental spaces, thus allowing more complete brushing. Dentists generally recommend the use of soft brushes to all their patients because they are very effective, without damaging the teeth and gums.
Nevertheless, brushes with medium bristles are the most common on the market. If you do not have a dental or gum problem, you can use this type of toothbrush. On the other hand, if you notice bleeding or pain in the gums when using your medium toothbrush, it is better to switch to a soft brush so as not to attack your mouth.
To change your brush head on your ecological Caliquo toothbrush, simply unclip the brush head by pressing on the back, and replace it. Be sure to hear the "click" validating the correct positioning of the brush head.
Slim ABS base. Nylon bristles. Choices: soft bristles or medium bristles.

More about the Caliquo brand
Caliquo is first and foremost the story of the treasures that are discovered, often by chance, on a rainy day, in the attic of an old family home. And also the story of Grégoire, an agricultural engineer who dreams of being an inventor - and who is too bored in a financial audit!
When he finds some old 19th century toothbrushes hidden in a corner of his father's attic in Normandy his brain wakes up! In bone, his toothbrushes were not meant to be thrown away. The idea is there: why not make the toothbrush an object that we keep and stop throwing away 18 grams of plastic every three months ?
