A regular plastic toothbrush takes over 400 years to decompose. Over 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes are dumped into landfills and oceans every year worldwide.
We believe that making small changes to everyday decisions such as brushing your teeth with an Eco Bamboo toothbrush will help preserve the environment and reduce plastic consumption.
A bamboo toothbrush handle can be put into a compost or landfill and will biodegrade.
If you decide to put your bamboo toothbrush into your garden, it may take as long as 5-10 years to completely break down.
A home composter may take around 4-6 months. Whereas an industrial composter is likely to take no more than a few weeks.
Here are Four creatives ideas on how you can RE-USE your Ethical Active Eco Bamboo toothbrush:
- Use your bamboo toothbrush as a cleaning tool. It’s the ideal size to reach tight and difficult spaces such as your computer keyboard, plug holes, jewelry, shoes and corners where dust naturally fills.
- Title your flowers, vegetables and herb plants by using your old bamboo toothbrushes as a quirky but delightful marker.
- Arts and Crafts of course. Build a photo frame or a soap tray. Imagination is limitless.
- Keep your bamboo toothbrush handy in the laundry for those nasty clothing stains that need some extra scrubbing to get out.
