Did you know…? 1% of the plastic accumulated in the oceans are toothbrushes, being a tool for daily use that we change every 3-4 months, has a very short lifespan, so that more than 4,500 million toothbrushes per year Plastic are discarded.

Problem of conventional toothbrushes
The problem lies in the fact that conventional toothbrushes, being manufactured with different types of plastics and not being a container, cannot really be destined for yellow containers , which makes recycling much more difficult. Since we must deposit them in the gray container of “other waste” and they can take more than 400 years to decompose, finally ending in our oceans, intervening alarmingly in our food chain. But, we have good news, we can stop it!

Sustainable alternative: the bamboo toothbrush


In MyBambooBrush they are aware of a natural, healthy and sustainable lifestyle, they are concerned about people, animals and the environment that surrounds us, so they want to curb the number of plastic toothbrushes that end up in our seas and oceans. For this, they have among their products a bamboo brush, a much more sustainable alternative than conventional toothbrushes made of plastic.

It is a natural and sustainable toothbrush totally suitable for vegans, since it is made of biodegradable bamboo and the bristles are made of Nylon 4 free of BPA. Bamboo is a plant with an unmatched capacity for growth, flexible and resistant with antibacterial properties that help prevent the proliferation of bacteria and fungi, which is why it is ideal for replacing the use of plastics. The Nylon 4 free of BPA that we use in the bristles of the brush has the highest index of biodegradability to be able to manufacture them without using animal hair.

Nor can we forget its effectiveness and cleaning power, its ergonomic design removes all types of waste, allowing to reach all corners of the mouth. Its soft and flexible bristles get an effective and pleasant brushing.

How to properly recycle a bamboo toothbrush?


Very easy! It will only be necessary to remove the bristles with the help of tweezers or pliers, so you can dispose of them in the gray “other waste” container and the rest of the brush, being made of bamboo, you can deposit it in a composting container or in the organic one. In a short time it will decompose returning to the earth in a totally safe way. The bamboo brush is the best option for your smile and that of the planet.
