Before starting Banish I knew that bamboo and wooden toothbrushes were a thing but to be completely honest I didn't understand their importance. How could a small household staple be so dangerous? After doing a bit of research I was shocked to discover the stats.
Each year in Australia we throw away over 30 million toothbrushes which creates around 1000 tonnes of landfill a year!!!
As well all know your stock standard toothbrush is made up of plastic with a bit of rubber for the handpiece and nylon bristles none of which are biodegradable so will stick around long after you're gone.
That means that every toothbrush you've ever used in your life is stilling somewhere in landfill not breaking down just taking up our precious space. Say what?!?
Do your thing and make the switch to a bamboo or wooden toothbrush that is biodegradable and do your bit.
We recommend Bodecare's sustainable bamboo toothbrushes that are biodegradable. The bristles are BPA free and enhanced with activated charcoal. You can even remove the bristles and throw your brush in the compost bin!
