Did you know that plastic is a major problem for the environment when it’s not handled properly? Most of which end up in landfills and oceans!
Bamboo toothbrushes are an eco-friendly alternative, because bamboo is a natural plant, fully biodegradable, thus a renewable and sustainable resource.
Bamboo is an environmentally friendly crop; it grows rapidly and needs almost no irrigation and no pesticides making it much more sustainable and extremely valuable to the earth.
The fast growth means the supply is highly sustainable, and affordable enough for everyday essential needs. It also produces a lot of oxygen and consumes an incredible amount of greenhouse gases.
Using and Caring for a Bamboo Toothbrush
You can use a toothbrush with a bamboo handle the same way you would use a plastic toothbrush and should keep the same considerations in mind. When choosing your toothbrush, pay close attention to the size of the head, the shape of the handle and the type of bristles. Ideally, you’ll want to choose a brush with soft bristles and with a brush head that fits comfortably in your mouth. The handle should be easy to hold.
It’s a good idea to replace bamboo toothbrushes as often as you would any other type of toothbrush. The Australian Dental Association recommends getting a new toothbrush every two to three months, or once there is visible fraying or damage to the bristles. Swapping your old toothbrush for a new one will help keep your teeth as clean as possible.
