Hydrophil Bamboo Toothbrush
Think your tiny toothbrush doesn’t cause much plastic pollution? You’d be amazed what a difference a plastic free Hyrdophil bamboo toothbrush can have as part of a zero waste bathroom.
Around 3.6 billion toothbrushes are used around the world every single year and a massive 80% of them end up escaping the recycling, causing landfill or ocean pollution. That’s pretty problematic when you realise that a plastic toothbrush can take around 1,000 years to decompose. Yikes. That’s not really the legacy we want to leave for our great, great, great, great grandchildren.
Thankfully, bamboo toothbrushes offer a really great alternative. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing types of wood and also requires minimal pesticides and fertilizers. It biodegrades quickly too – making it a truly earth-friendly, plastic free material.
Even better – the bristles on this vegan toothbrush are also made from plant-based castor oil and are BPA free and eco friendly.
Can I reuse the toothbrush after I’m done?
Time to get creative. For a totally zero waste bathroom, you could try recycling your old toothbrushes to create picture frames or even a hanging rack for your reusable face cloths.
