Why a bamboo toothbrush?
A natural cellulose fiber, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on our beautiful planet, where the petroleum used to make plastic is a limited resource. Releasing 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere compared to other plants, the amazing ability of bamboo to self-renew also means that deforestation is unnecessary.
Are bamboo toothbrushes effective? If you brush properly, bamboo toothbrushes are designed to be just as effective at cleaning your teeth as any manual toothbrush out there, without having to put plastic in your mouth twice a day.
How long do bamboo toothbrushes last?
With proper care, a natural bamboo toothbrush will last as long as any plastic toothbrush. It’s suggested you rinse your toothbrush after cleaning your teeth and keep it dry. Dentists recommend replacing your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or when the bristles have frayed out of shape.
How long do plastic toothbrushes take to decompose?
A biodegradable toothbrush made from bamboo is able to be composted and will return to organic matter in the earth, whereas plastic doesn’t disappear and will stay in the environment for thousands of years. Even though a toothbrush is a small item, with the average person using 300 in their lifetime, combined with the billions of other people on the planet, you can see why plastic toothbrushes are so harmful to the environment.
How do you recycle a bamboo toothbrush?
Choosing an Eco-friendly toothbrush made from bamboo means one less plastic toothbrush polluting the ocean or taking up landfill but they still need to be recycled to maximize their green credentials. First remove the bristles with pliers and place them in your plastic recycling for collection and then compost the bamboo handle by putting it in your bio-waste bin, home composer or simply burying it in your garden.
