Benefits of switching to a bamboo toothbrush
Most plastic toothbrushes use petroleum in their production. We all know the carbon impact of petroleum. Plastics require a lot of energy for production. They take hundreds of years to degrade. While they sit buried in landfills or floating in our oceans or collecting on our beaches, they release harmful toxins into the environment. Bamboo toothbrushes, however, have a handle made from sustainable, biodegradable bamboo. 99% of the total mass of a bamboo toothbrush can be composted.
Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on this planet. It can grow an amazing 3 feet a day! Bamboo is also technically a grass, which means that it can be cut down and it will grow again, unlike a tree. Along with super speedy growth, bamboo also releases 30 times more oxygen than other plants.
Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial. No pesticides are needed and it does not require irrigation meaning it uses less water to grow. This all makes bamboo a leader in sustainability compared to other materials.
