Hey! Today I wanted to write another post in my low impact lifestyle series. Let’s discuss toothbrushes!
Recently, I swapped my plastic toothbrush for a bamboo one. I’m really liking it! I decided to switch out my plastic toothbrush when I heard 99% of the world’s toothbrushes ends up in the ocean. I hadn’t thought about it before. Searching for a swap, I quickly came upon bamboo toothbrushes. Bamboo is the quickest growing plant on earth and the toothbrushes are completely biodegradable as well as their packaging.
I opted for the Humblebrush brand as it was the first bamboo toothbrush I found. It practically feels the same in your hand as a plastic toothbrush and the bristles aren’t too hard nor too soft. I would recommend this brand as it also gives part of its profits to helping kids in Africa with dental care. However, I think I’ll try a few other brands to see what I like best.
Will you try a bamboo toothbrush?
I’m completely sold on bamboo toothbrushes. I hope you’ll give them a try too! Thanks for reading! See you next time!
