Toothbrushes are the most important item for dental hygiene. Dentists recommend using them at least twice a day and changing them every 3 months.
As a result, it is estimated that 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes are used every year. That huge pile of toothbrushes is not recycled and ends up polluting our environment.
Why are plastic toothbrushes bad?
Unfortunately, plastic toothbrushes end up in landfills or the ocean. There, your toothbrushes will rest for centuries before breaking down. Something we should change every 3 months, should be made from a compostable or recyclable material instead of plastic.
The good news is that there are eco-friendly toothbrushes you can use instead of plastic.
Bamboo toothbrushes are a good alternative
One of the most popular alternatives are bamboo toothbrushes. The bamboo handle is strong and mould-resistant, which makes it perfect for a bathroom environment. The handle is compostable in a backyard compost. The bristles, however, are made of nylon and must be recycled according to local recycling programs.
How product is made
