Eco-Bru Adult's Bamboo Toothbrush
A bamboo toothbrush is one of the easiest switches to make to reduce your use of plastic. They are perfect for everyday use or for travel when you don't want to take your electric toothbrush* with you.
The Eco-Bru Bamboo Adult Toothbrush is available in four colours (red, blue, yellow and white) so there's no need to share. There is also the option to buy a pack of four which contains one of each colour. If you would like to include children's toothbrushes in the four-pack please state preferences at checkout.
The brushes are BPA-free, organic, sustainable and vegan friendly. They are also 100% recyclable, simply remove the bristles which are made from BPA free nylon and place them in your recycling (check locally). The handle is biodegradable and can be composted or get creative and upcycle it. All great toothbrush upcycled projects will get featured on the Switch and Ditch social media pages if you share them with me.
Bamboo is a fast growing plant which benefits from being anti-fungal, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. This is win - win - win if you ask me.
Dentists recommend that you change your toothbrush every three months which is four times a year and potentially forty toothbrushes a decade. With a bit of basic maths and applying it to a UK population of 60 million that soon adds up to a LOT of toothbrushes.
As the majority of plastic ever made still exists there's a very good chance your first (and second and third . . .) toothbrush is hanging around somewhere. It has probably reached landfill here or overseas. Why not make the change today and stop your future toothbrushes taking the same path?
