In fact, 99% of all toothbrushes in the world are made from plastic. And each year, we throw away over 3 billion plastic toothbrushes that never get recycled. These end up in landfill or the ocean, polluting the earth and posing a risk to marine life. This number (over 3 billion) worth to make a switch. Thankfully, there is an environmentally friendly alternative… Bamboo toothbrushes. Currently, this alternative is the best choice for our earth for the following reasons:
What is a bamboo toothbrush?
Designed in Canada and made in Vietnam with bamboo handle and nylon bristles, this eco-friendly toothbrush is an ideal alternative to the plastic ones.
- Why bamboo?
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on our planet. By contrast, where the petroleum used to make plastic is a limited resource. After harvesting, bamboo plant will regenerate itself so we don't have to worry about deforestation.
- It’s good for our environment
Made from natural bamboo wood, the handle of the toothbrush is 100% biodegradable. It can be safely discarded by returning it to the ground in compost or landfill. Even with non-compostable bristles, these eco-friendly toothbrushes still eliminate 90% of the plastic used in traditional toothbrush production.
- It’s effective and easy to use
The bristles are designed to be soft nylon that provide maximum performance to remove stains, tartar and plaque from sensitive teeth and gums. If you brush properly, bamboo toothbrushes are as effective at cleaning your teeth as any manual toothbrush out there, without having to put plastic in your mouth twice or three times a day.
A natural bamboo toothbrush will last as long as any plastic toothbrush. It’s suggested you thoroughly dry the toothbrush before storing. Dentists recommend replacing your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or when the bristles have frayed out of shape.
- The production process is eco-friendly.
The handle on the bamboo toothbrush is usually handcrafted with minimal use of electronic machinery while the plastic toothbrush is produced in a factory, which uses many machines and automated process in order to produce the final product. Moreover, this handle contains no dye, no ink, and absolutely no chemical product.
- It brings spiritual value
Nowadays, people tend to bring nature home to balance everything in life. That is the reason for the vases of flowers in our home. Also, a toothbrush made from bamboo will help you connect with nature right in your home. In addition, our toothbrush allows you to customize your name that make you more special in everyone.
