Tooth brushing has long been a part of our daily lives, so much so that we rarely think about it, but because people’s awareness of plastic pollution continues to increase, more of us are reconsidering our daily choices.
It is estimated that 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes are used globally every year, and an average person uses 300 in his lifetime. Unfortunately, about 80% of it ends up in the sea, posing a threat to marine life and habitat.
Each toothbrush takes up to a thousand years to decompose, so by 2050, it is not surprising that the amount of plastic in the ocean will exceed that of fish.
There are no hard and fast rules about the frequency of toothbrush replacement. Dr. Coyle recommends replacing it every 1 to 4 months based on the frequency of use. “When the bristles start to bend, bend, or fold, it’s time to get a new one.”
We tested the following bamboo toothbrushes in a few weeks and noticed how comfortable and easy they are to hold and control, how well the bristles reach every gap in our teeth, and how our mouth feels after use.
This toothbrush is made of moso bamboo, grows one meter a day, does not require fertilization, and is highly sustainable, safe and environmentally friendly. This kind of bamboo is called “panda-friendly” because pandas do not eat it and do not inhabit the area where it grows.
They are currently only in natural bamboo color, so they should be carefully wiped dry between use to avoid mildew. If you like to feel harder when brushing your teeth and suitable for small children, choose white bristles.
If you are worried that bamboo and bathroom will cause a disaster in terms of molds, then the thermal carbonized handle of the environmentally friendly toothbrush should alleviate your worries,but these toothbrushes will not break the bank and you will also limit the cost of the planet.
