You already know that plastic toothbrushes account for a global waste problem. Plastic is a cheap, versatile and valuable resource in many ways. However, it has created a disposable lifestyle. 50% of plastic is just used once and thrown away.
Toothbrushes are an essential product since everyone has to brush their teeth daily. On average, a single person uses and disposes about 2 to 3 toothbrushes in a year. A bamboo toothbrush is another amazing product to escape the use of plastic in production. A plastic toothbrush also contributes greatly to environmental pollution. Most bamboo product could be 100% biodegradable which means every part of the toothbrush could either naturally or artificially be recycled.
Bamboo toothbrushes are an Eco-friendly alternative, because bamboo is a natural plant, fully biodegradable, thus a renewable and sustainable resource. It is one of the fastest-growing plants on the planet so we don’t need to worry about running out any time soon.
Besides, we use a species called moso bamboo, which is totally organic and wild, it doesn’t need fertilizers, pesticides or irrigation. Plus, it doesn’t compromise our dearest pandas diet. Therefore, it is the perfect material for the handle.
As for bristles on bamboo toothbrushes they should be BPA free causing less impact on our health. Our bamboo toothbrushes are nylon 4 BPA free bristles and we also deliver them in a biodegradable and fully recyclable paper packaging.
Finally, you should know that the bamboo toothbrush still needs to be disposed of or composted properly for maximum environmental friendliness. The handle is reusable in arts & crafts, or use it to guide a young garden plant, or carve yourself some wood chopsticks!
