Caliquo, an ecological concept of rechargeable toothbrush
The disposable toothbrush represents in france 1400 tons of waste per year of unrecyclable and non-recyclable plastics consisting of mixed plastics. a conventional toothbrush weighs about 18 grams. 18 grams of plastic go to the trash every 3 months while only the hairs of the brush are worn.
Society Caliquo so decided to act by proposing ecological toothbrushes to get out of the era of plastic at all by creating everyday objects that are sustainable and/or zero waste. the rechargeable head system allows their toothbrushes to stay long, very long in our bathrooms! Thanks to this concept, the waste of plastic is divided by 8: only 8 grams per year are thrown, that is, less than one disposable toothbrush. used heads are then recycled, nylon on one side and base on the other.

It doesn’t look like this, but it’s almost a work of art this toothbrush has a child! unique in europe, it took 1 year of work, several drawings and prototypes and several tests before being satisfied with the result.
The short sleeve and golden handleAllows excellent hand by children. ♪ hairs are flexible, it allows respect the enamel of milk teeth and the bombed shape of the child molars. the head of the toothbrush being small, it makes it easy to go in all corners and corners of the mouth. finally, the rechargeable head is equipped with a innovative, patented and ultra-secured clip system. to prevent the refillable head from falling apart during use, only an adult can remove the used head by introducing a thin tip (stylo, trombone etc). in the tiny cavity (less than 2 millimetres) provided for this purpose.

Bioplastic is made from ricin - the plant and its seeds. So we talk about bio-soured plastic, that is, an innovative material made from the synthesis of organic, renewable, plant-based elements. using bioplastic represents a first natural alternative to fossil-based plastics whose global reserves are exhausting. Caliquo chose to work with ricin starch because of the solidity of harvested bio-polymers.
