Most of us remember shopping for toothbrushes as kids and picking the most colorful ones, the ones with the prettiest designs. What if I told you that those same toothbrushes are probably still intact somewhere on earth? The worst part is that they will probably stick around even longer than us. Plastic toothbrushes are virtually indestructible. It is important to look for more sustainable alternatives, such as bamboo toothbrushes. Since we are used to traditional toothbrushes, here are some perks of choosing bamboo toothbrushes.
Better for the environment
Most bamboo toothbrushes are compostable as they are made of plants. Not only is a bamboo toothbrush compostable, but it is also sustainable. The bamboo plant is one of the fastest-growing plants on Earth, growing 3 feet high every day! Some require the bristles to be taken off before disposing of them, ours does not!
Better for your gums
Oftentimes, bamboo bristles are softer than those of traditional toothbrushes. Since we’re used to those harder bristles, it can feel weird to use softer bristles. However, soft bristles are much better for your gum health.
Better for travel
Bamboo toothbrushes are also much more convenient to carry than electric toothbrushes while travelling. There is no need to charge it which allows you to bring it with you anywhere you go. Plus, our toothbrushes come in packs of two so you can have one for your home and one for your travels!
Better for your wallet
Bamboo toothbrushes are less expensive than most traditional plastic toothbrushes on the market. Not only do they look fancy and unique, but they are also inexpensive!
