Why should you use a bamboo toothbrush? discover the benefits!
THE PLASTIC PROBLEM
Plastic toothbrushes represent 1% of the trash in our oceans. We are used to changing them every 2 or 3 months, so every year we throw away more than 4.5 billion plastic toothbrushes.
Plastic is a cheap, versatile and valuable resource in many ways. However, he has created a disposable lifestyle. 50% of the plastic is used only once and thrown away.
Bottles, straws, coffee cups, beverage containers, plastic bags, cutlery, cotton swabs… the list is long and we all know it. This is indeed a great concern. But the good news is that it's up to us to take the first step: refuse.
Plastic pollution is an unsustainable waste and has become an environmental problem. So basically, do you want to remain part of the problem or are you ready to take a small step to reduce our collective plastic footprint?
What's wrong with conventional toothbrushes?
Conventional toothbrushes are made from different types of plastic, so they cannot be recycled and take over 400 years to break down, eventually ending up in our oceans, harming marine life. Luckily we can stop this bad habit.
Billions of plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year. They are dumped into our oceans or end up in landfills, where they remain for around 1,000 years before finally breaking down.
If we put together the toothbrushes that are thrown away in Spain in one year, they would circle the Earth three times.
Another amazing fact is that by 2050, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by weight. Pretty scary, don't you think? But the environmental damage is totally avoidable, if we take a small and simple action: switch to a biodegradable toothbrush.
Do you know the benefits of using a bamboo toothbrush?
Bamboo toothbrushes are an ecological alternative, because bamboo is a natural plant, totally biodegradable, making it a renewable and sustainable resource. It's one of the fastest growing plants on the planet, so we don't have to worry about running out of it any time soon.
In addition, we use a species called mosu bamboo, which is totally organic and wild, it does not need fertilizers, pesticides or irrigation. Plus, it doesn't compromise our beloved panda diet. Therefore, it is the perfect material for the handle. Other benefits are:
- Reduces environmental pollution and plastic waste in our oceans.
- Bamboo's antibacterial properties allow it to be grown without the use of toxic substances.
- The marine flora and fauna will not be affected by the dumping of toothbrushes into the sea.
