02 Sep Is bamboo toothbrush the right toothbrush for you?
Are you in the market for a new toothbrush? If so, you may want to consider buying a bamboo toothbrush. In this article, we discuss whether or not a bamboo toothbrush could be right for you! It is always a good idea to consider the environment when making a purchase, which is why many people are rejecting plastic products and choosing products made from more eco-friendly materials instead. Almost 500 million tons of plastic products are manufactured each year and many of these are single-use plastic products. This is a huge problem as plastic does not break down and is often not recycled. Even worse, some products (such as plastic toothbrushes) are very difficult to recycle and end up in a landfill.
A bamboo toothbrush is very similar to a manual, plastic toothbrush and will clean your teeth in much the same way. The only difference is that with a bamboo toothbrush, the bamboo handle is biodegradable. A bamboo toothbrush is also used in the same way as you would a plastic one and there are many varieties out there. We recommend choosing a bamboo toothbrush that has the right size head and bristle softness for your needs. You should be comfortable holding the handle, as well.
Bamboo is great for the environment as it grows quickly and requires no harmful pesticides or fertilisers. It is therefore no surprise that many eco-conscious folks are switching to bamboo! A bamboo toothbrush should be replaced just as often as a plastic one (i.e. every 3 to 4 months or when you can detect visible wear and tear or bristle damage. If you decide to switch to a bamboo toothbrush, you can be rest assured that you are playing an important part in preserving our natural environment, as well as taking care of your dental health.
