Plastic Toothbrushes vs Bamboo Toothbrushes

Plastic Toothbrushes vs Bamboo Toothbrushes
What's the difference between plastic toothbrushes & bamboo toothbrushes?

🌱Toothbrushes, regardless of raw materials should be replaced frequently. However plastic toothbrushes are hard to recycle & comes in a lot of plastic packaging.

🌱Bamboo toothbrushes are made of bamboo, that are fast growing & biodegradable. The only caveat is the bristles are made of nylon & have to be removed before the handles are composted. While not 100% plastic free, it uses much less with no packaging.

🌱Cost-wise, both toothbrushes are comparable in price, if bamboo toothbrushes are purchased from zero waste stores.

🌱Bamboo toothbrushes must be kept dry after use because the handles are not treated with preservatives or pesticide.

Ultimately, a bamboo toothbrush may not do a whole lot for the environment in the grand scheme of things but if enough people make a small change in their daily lives, the impact can snowball & make a big difference. 😊
