- Replace your plastic toothbrush for Bamboo
Why we love it
This Environmental Bamboo Toothbrush with soft bristles is just fab! It's made from Moso bamboo, which is one of the fastest-growing (in fact, it can grow as much as a meter a week!), renewable resources in the world. It absorbs CO2 in huge quantities too! The bamboo is then treated to prolong its life.
The bristles are made from a BPA free polymer which is resistant to microbial growth during normal use, to ensure safety and durability. This toothbrush is fairly-traded and vegan too!
Conventional plastic toothbrushes are made from polypropylene which is sourced from non-renewable fossil fuels. They're basically indestructible, which means the first toothbrushes we had as kids are still hanging around in some form, polluting the planet. Every year billions of plastic toothbrushes are thrown away. They are dumped into our oceans or end up in landfills, where they sit around for about 1,000 years before finally breaking down.
Bamboo toothbrushes are an eco friendly alternative because bamboo is a natural, fully-biodegradable plant and also a renewable and sustainable resource. It's one of the fastest growing plants on the planet, so we don't need to worry about running out either.
