My first experience with a bamboo toothbrush

one of my goals of 2018 is to be more aware of the environment and to start using sustainable products! My first sustainable product is a bamboo toothbrush which I bought at a local sustainability event.

After I carried it home, I decided to take it with me to my camping trip and when i first used it i was surprised: it literally tastes like putting wood in your mouth?!? But the bristles were very soft and felt nice on my teeth.

In general it is like a usual toothbrush and it works just fine. Also it looks much better and is much more ecofriendly than the usual plastic brushes, that is why i decided to list some information for you below:

Some facts about toothbrushes and waste:

  • 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes are produced every year
  • usually a person uses up to six different toothbrushes a year
  • the plastic is not sustainable because it takes years to be dismantled
  • bamboo toothbrushes should be stored dry so they last longer
  • toothbrushes can be boiled and then be recycled for cleaning

  1. Can you get these toothbrushes in the UK? I’d love to try one with my tooth tablets lol I honestly didn’t know that many plastic brushes were made every year! Makes me sad about my electric one
