5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Switching to an Eco Toothbrush
1. 3.5 billion toothbrushes are sold every year across the world
Thats a lot of teeth being cleaned, which is great but at what cost is this having on the environment? most of them are 100% plastic and take hundreds of years to decompose, as they sit in landfill they release harmful chemicals into the environment, which we all can agree at the rate they are being disposed, is a tonne of harmful waste.
2. 320 plastic toothbrushes used per person
It's suggested you replace your toothbrush every 3 months, thats 4 plastic toothbrushes per person a year contaminating the planet for hundreds of years to come. The average life expectancy in the UK is 80 years, SO that’s around 320 plastic toothbrushes BEING USED PER PERSON OVER ONE LIFETIME..is your head hurting yet?...all these crazy numbers just seem so vast to me, but until you crunch the numbers down, you only begin to realise the impact that a small thing like a 100% plastic toothbrush has on the environment.
3. Bamboo is sustainable and biodegradable
Bamboo is one of natures fastest growing resources, its a sustainable alternative material choice for tooth brush handles and unlike plastic it's biodegradable and supports communities that sustainably grow it.
4. 90% plastic free
