Worldwide, over 3 billion plastic toothbrushes are disposed of every year. This waste ends up in landfills, or even worse our oceans. Thankfully, there is an environmentally friendly alternative, the bamboo toothbrush.
It’s biodegradable: The handle is made from 100% bamboo, it can go straight into the compost heap to then fertilize plants. Even with non-compostable bristles, these eco-friendly toothbrushes still eliminate the need for at least 95% of the plastic used in traditional toothbrush production.
It’s safe to burn: Even if you don’t have a compost heap, you can dispose of your used bamboo toothbrushes by burning it as kindling. Bamboo is carbon-neutral or even carbon negative over their lifecycle, meaning the only carbon dioxide it releases when burned is that of which it has drawn from the atmosphere in the first place.
The natural and sustainable bamboo used to make the bamboo toothbrush doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals, making it a healthier, non-toxic, natural option.
