Boar bristle toothbrushes have been around for centuries and are making a comeback as people become more environmentally conscious. The bamboo and boar bristles are sourced in China which is the largest producer of these types of bristles, not to mention bamboo too. The bristles are sterilized with hot water and do not cause any harm to the animal. These bristles are used in a lot of different brushes and are generally a byproduct of the meat industry.
