Why should you start switching to using Bamboo Toothbrush?
Let us first go with facts. We all know that anything made from plastic will be extremely difficult to recycle and doesn’t break down easily in the environment. So, toothbrushes made of plastic can damage our environment if not disposed of properly.
In the US, there is a research that shows about 1 billion plastic toothbrushes are disposed of annually headed to landfills or oceans. This number is alarming because this plastic waste could end up in our nature, damage the habitat of animals and impact our health. Plastic toothbrushes could take up to 1,000 years to break down into smaller particles.
It is good that people nowadays become more conscious of our environment and a lot of sustainable products are now out there in the market. One of these sustainable products that make a difference are toothbrushes made from bamboo. By switching from using a plastic toothbrush to a bamboo toothbrush, you are choosing an eco-friendly product with 100% biodegradable handles.
Getting to know your Bamboo Toothbrush
Bamboo toothbrushes are biodegradable, plus you can reuse them in so many ways. Did you know that bamboo is a fast-growing plant that doesn’t require artificial chemicals like pesticides and only needs little care, which is native to Asia and South America. The only thing about bamboo toothbrushes is that the bristles are usually made of nylon, which needs to be removed if you will dispose of your bamboo brush already.
How to Store Bamboo Toothbrush
When using a bamboo toothbrush, you should store it in an upright position so it will dry quickly and stop mold from developing. Remember that when you don’t dry the bamboo toothbrush properly, it may start to decompose since it is organic material. Also, if your bamboo brush already shows signs of fraying, you should buy a new one, which usually takes 2-3 months of use.
How to Compost a Bamboo Toothbrush?
After you have reached the life span of using a bamboo toothbrush, you just simply need to compost it. Since the material is organic you just need to break off the head of the brush that includes the bristles. You can dispose of the head of the brush in the trash. After that, you can now already compost the bamboo toothbrush handle in your backyard. A bamboo toothbrush can decompose from 3 to 4 months compared to a plastic toothbrush that takes a thousand years!
