Sustainable Eco-Friendly Toothbrush
We have found that bamboo actually grows and replenishes itself very quickly, unlike other woods. It is easy to maintain and easy to grow without a lot of pesticides or fertilizers. It is a very sustainable wood. Which makes this wood a wonderful wood to work with for a variety of things. It is also naturally waterproof, making it perfect for moist bathroom environments. bamboo products are a great eco-friendly alternative.
It is recommended that you wipe off the handles after each use to extend the life of your toothbrush.
When choosing your toothbrush, pay attention to the size of the bamboo handle that you are used to. The bristles should be firm but soft. Soft bristles are great for cleaning your teeth as well as your gums. Bamboo toothbrushes in the UK aren’t as popular as the plastic alternative but we hope to change that in the future. Getting your teeth clean and maintaining good oral hygiene isn’t just for your smile but also your health.
How long do bamboo toothbrushes last?
Just like your plastic toothbrush version and with correct dental care, it should be replaced every 2-3 months or when the bristles look frayed or out of shape. Once it has hit the end of its life cycle you can remove the bristles and put it into a home composter where it will decompose in only a few months.
Is a bamboo toothbrush better?
For the actual way, a bamboo toothbrush works exactly the same as a plastic toothbrush. However, it is better for the environment, and think about it, you use 4 toothbrushes a year. That’s a lot of plastic you will be saving and not wastefully throwing into the environment. A bamboo alternative will break down over time and return back to Mother Earth.
Are bamboo toothbrushes really better for the environment?
Of course, they are. They are decomposable as well as made from sustainable material. They are far better than their plastic opponents. Yet, they are still affordable as well.
Do bamboo toothbrushes have plastic bristles?
