OK, we assume that you know how to brush your teeth 😄 but here are a few tips for what to do with your bamboo toothbrush once it's reached the end of it's life:
Toothbrushes are great for cleaning around the house and getting into all those hard to reach spots, like computer keyboards, air vents and the dreaded tile grouting.
Once the bristles have worn out it is recommended to remove them with a pair of pliers before disposal due to the different times the bristle and handles will take to biodegrade.
Alternatively, instead of composting the bamboo handle, it could be given a third life and be used as a seed marker or paint stirrer.
Bamboo has been used for centuries because it is such a versatile material. It's also well know for its antibacterial and antifungal properties making it the perfect natural material to make a toothbrush out of.
Don't worry about the pandas, this bamboo toothbrush is made from Moso bamboo which isn't grown in panda habitats. They also don't see it as food.
Ditch the Plastic
It's estimated that 3.5 billion toothbrushes are sold every year worldwide, the majority being single-use and made of plastic. Switching to a bamboo toothbrush is a really easy way to reduce your plastic footprint.
