Plastic toothbrushes collected from the wild.
Bamboo toothbrushes collected from the wild.
You make the call.
Plastic toothbrushes can’t be recycled and 1 billion of them are thrown away each year just in the United States!
They either end up in a landfill or washed away into our waters, which then break down into microplastics that our marine life digest. Plastic toothbrushes can take thousands of years to degrade and remain on the planet forever.
Properly disposing of them is virtually impossible. Many toothbrushes also have silicone grips which further complicate any recycling efforts.
Bamboo is sustainable and 100% compostable.
It is the world’s fastest naturally renewing resource and it also happens to be anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. It’s ethically sourced and can be reused, recycled, or thrown into your compost bin.
Whenever you change your toothbrush, get rid of the guilt that comes with tossing plastic.
These also make fantastic gifts.
Do dentists have a problem with me using a bamboo brush? Nope. Check out this word from Parkcrest Dental Group:
Treat it just like your old plastic toothbrush - just forget the guilt when you're done!
