The Simple Reason Why You Should Try Bamboo Toothbrush
Being one of the most wasteful part of our lives, beauty and personal care products can look challenging to change. To start off the day, we brush our teeth, comb our hair, then go on to style it and apply some make up (if you are required to), moisturiser, sunscreen and then head off. If this is your routine, then you are probably throwing in the landfill a lot of plastic during a whole year. But in fact, they are an easy place to start reducing your waste.
Swap your plastic for a Bamboo Toothbrush
Almost 50 million pounds of plastic toothbrushes make it to our landfills every year. All that plastic can take up to 1,000 years to decompose and can even leak pollutants into the surrounding soil and water.
Bamboo is environmentally friendly because it grows super fast, over a yard per day that’s over 3 feet every single day, plus bamboo can grow in close proximity to each other. Bamboo works great as a toothbrush because it naturally repels water, doesn’t splinter and is antimicrobial.
