Sometimes it’s a big decision… sometimes it’s as small as changing your toothbrush.
In Australia alone, over 30 million toothbrushes are disposed of each year, which creates around 1,000 tonnes of plastic waste. Worldwide there’s over 4.7 Billion plastic toothbrushes produced every year. That’s an island of waste right there! We know plastic doesn’t degrade and typically ends up in landfill or worse, the ocean.
If there’s a way to reduce your plastic wouldn’t you jump on the chance? Good news – there is, bamboo toothbrushes!
Bamboo toothbrushes are a brilliant alternative. Bamboo is a wonder material. Because it grows so fast, it’s way more sustainable than traditional wood plus it contains natural antibacterial properties. Technically considered a member of the grass family, bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth, and is incredibly abundant. It regenerates itself prolifically with minimal water and without the need for harmful pesticides – in fact harvesting and using the bamboo helps to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas.
Our brushes are grown from Organic environmentally sustainable bamboo and look super trendy in any bathroom.
The Earth is our home. We all share a mutual responsibility to give back and care for our planet.
