Did you know,
Over 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes that will never biodegrade are dumped in landfills and oceans every year worldwide. While it may be hard (for most of us) to totally eliminate plastic from our lives, it is critical for our society to reduce the use of plastic. Using an alternative like bamboo toothbrushes like this one is a vote for non-toxic sustainable materials.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth. Because it contains naturally-occurring antimicrobial agents, there is no need for using fertilizers or pesticides during its cultivation. This toothbrush is made from bamboo that is totally organic and wild. After a bamboo stalk is harvested to use it for toothbrushes, another stalk takes its place and grows to full size within just 2 years — a remarkable growth rate!
