Why use a Bamboo Toothbrush? This is the first question that comes to our mind before making a switch to a bamboo toothbrush.
Plastic does not go away as it is not part of nature’s food cycle. Every bit of plastic every created still exist- in some form or the other. We recycle plastic and make it into another form of plastic and on top of it we do not recycle enough or recycle properly (due to many factors) and then we create millions of tons of plastic everyday.
The environmental impact of plastic toothbrush is shocking. According to an article published in National Geographic, a billion toothbrushes are thrown away in U.S. every year and most of them are plastic.
Considering the world’s population of 7.53 billion people, that makes roughly 29.4 billion toothbrushes each year. On average, a plastic toothbrush weighs around 20 g and so it can be calculated that the whole of humanity produces 600 million kg of plastic toothbrush waste in only 365 days. What many people do not know is that toothbrushes are not recyclable, since small parts get stuck in the machinery. That is why they end up in landfill and “because plastic is essentially indestructible, that means nearly every single toothbrush made since the 1930s is still out there in the world somewhere, living on as a piece of trash,”
Now that we know why use a bamboo toothbrush, let’s decide on “Which Bamboo Toothbrush is Better”?
Well, majority of Bamboo Toothbrushes in the market have plastic/nylon bristles, which is not disclosed by the companies selling them. Brush with Bamboo is the world’s first and only 100% plant-based modern toothbrush. Every component of the product is plant-based- bristles, handle and box.
Brush with Bamboo is a true and honest brand: Brush with Bamboo is an industry veteran and pioneered making modern bamboo toothbrush in 2010 with world’s first partial plant based bristles. They never made any false or misleading claims about their product- what it is and what it does and doesn’t; unfortunately, “Green-washing” is quite common in the sustainable products industry.
