04 May Bamboo Toothbrush – Better For Your Health & Eco-Friendly
So, which bamboo toothbrush is a wiser choice for the environment and which is a wiser choice for your actual teeth? Bamboo toothbrushes are like the typical hard plastic toothbrushes you would find at your local drug store. They have smooth bristles with handles to hold onto and strong bristles with long handles to pull out food particles and plaque from your teeth. The fact of the matter is that these brushes do not biodegrade, they will not go away, and they can do damage to your gums, mouth, and teeth if you are not careful.
One thing I do recommend is using bamboo toothbrushes, especially for those who care about the environment, or are trying to be more eco-friendly. One great options is the brushes from Bambooth. You may want to consider a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush. These types are made from bamboo that has been grown naturally. When these toothbrushes get wet, they will first break down due to the natural acids in the bamboo and then when they dry and harden they will make a brand new toothbrush.
But not all plastics are as eco-friendly as bamboo toothbrushes. Some of the most common, and widely sold, plastics come from China, India, and Indonesia. These materials will still be harmful to our environment because they will not break down, and they will remain in place once they harden. Bamboo is not only better for our body, it is also better for our environment. Bamboo is stronger than most plastics, it does not clog easily, and it makes for an easy to clean and biodegradable toothbrush. All you have to do is make sure you do not use any plastic based products, whether they are for cosmetics, food or even to brush your teeth!
