Why Bamboo Toothbrush?
Changing the way we think about everyday items
- 4.7 billions
More than 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes are produced every year. What will people make of these things 500 years into the future, when they’re digging them up.
- 600 years
Plastic toothbrushes are a nightmare for the environment, they are used approximately for 2 months and then they are not recycled because they are made with many types of plastic. ..
- 7.6 billion people
7.6 billion people (yes, I know unfortunately not everyone has access to a toothbrush, but I’m just trying to paint a picture here). And then multiply that with the worldwide average life expectancy, which is around 70 years old.
I really like these! I bought them to go in my guest bathroom, but I tried one for myself (wouldn't do to give guests an unpleasant toothbrush), and I found it to be a very nice toothbrush. Very attractive, too, rather upscale. I do like that they are recyclable, but hope that my guests will like them so much that they'll tuck them into their overnight kits to use at home!
Gets the job done, but takes a while to break into. At first, the bristles are very rough and hard and I have sensitive gums, so it hurt ha. After a couple of days though, it started to get softer. I guess just be patient with it, if you do not want to deal with that soreness for a couple of days, I would not recommend this for you. However, I stuck it out and it cleans very, very well.
When entertaining I love to have spare toothbrushes in the guest bathroom. Of course, because I'm super extra I like them to be nice toothbrushes, not store bought ones. These bamboo brushes are awesome, and they come individually wrapped. Depending on how many people I have over, I put out the correct amount of brushes. The packaging is very stylish, and looks great even on display
