Toothbrushes contribute greatly to plastic waste. In the US alone, over 1 billion get thrown away every year. Conventional toothbrushes are made from materials like polypropylene, which do not degrade over time. Bamboo toothbrushes make a sustainable and stylish alternative to plastic.
Bamboo is the fastest naturally growing resource in the world and has antibacterial properties, making it ideal for use as a toothbrush. Rather than being binned, once you’re done with a bamboo toothbrush it can be thrown right on top of your compost heap, where it will degrade and not contribute to pollution.
