Sometimes it’s a big decision… sometimes it’s as small as changing your toothbrush.
Using a bamboo toothbrush is a simple way to make your oral hygiene routine more environmentally friendly.
This eco toothbrush looks pretty much the same as any regular toothbrush you've used but with one key difference. Instead of being made from plastic, it has a wooden handle. Some people think it is a wood toothbrush, since bamboo look similar to and behave much like wood.
Using this toothbrush means that once you're finished with it, it will decompose quickly: it can decompose in as little as four months. Compare that to the thousands of years your plastic toothbrush takes to break down and you can see the benefit to the environment.

Why a bamboo handle?
It may never have occurred to you how many toothbrushes you use in your lifetime. If you're changing your toothbrush every three months as dentists recommend, then you'll probably use about 300. Some estimates suggest that about 3.6 billion toothbrushes are disposed of worldwide every year.
That's a lot of plastic going into landfills or ending up in oceans. But you can do you bit to reduce the problem by using a bamboo toothbrush. Bamboo is sustainable because it is so fast-growing and it biodegrades quickly.
Some of the great benefits of using bamboo include: it captures a lot of carbon as it grows (around 30% more than most other wood); there's no need to chop down swathes of rainforest to grow it; it has antimicrobial properties, meaning that bacteria are less likely to grow on it.

I like the fact that the handle is made of bamboo, and it has very efficient bristles. The only fault I found is that the handle takes a bit of time to dry, like all bamboo products.
A great alternative to the plastic toothbrush, very comfortable to use with a nice design!
