Did you know that one billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year in the US? That makes a hideous 50 million pounds of waste annually! Switching to a bamboo toothbrush is one way for you to stop the madness.
A modern bamboo toothbrush has an ergonomic handle and medium soft bristles. It feels and performs just like a plastic toothbrush, but the benefits of using a bamboo brush go way beyond that.
What makes bamboo so much better than other materials? First of all, bamboo naturally contains antimicrobial properties. That means a bamboo toothbrush stays much cleaner than your traditional brush.
Bamboo is better for the environment, too. It’s fully biodegradable, which means bamboo toothbrushes don’t clog landfills with unnecessary waste. Your bamboo brush is recyclable, reusable and durable.
Bamboo is also fully sustainable. It’s the fastest growing plant on Earth, as strong as any wood, and produces more oxygen than trees!
When you shop for disposable toothbrushes, try choosing bamboo as an alternative to plastic or other harmful materials. The choice is simple and makes it easy for you to be mindful of the environment.
