Did you know that the UK alone throws away roughly 264 million brushes every year? Most of them are made from plastic which takes over 400 years to decompose and harms marine life.
Luckily, there are more eco-friendly alternatives that have no negative impact on the environment and the bamboo electric toothbrush is one of the best options on the market!
Here are 5 reasons to convince you to ditch plastic and switch to an electric bamboo toothbrush today!
1. They’re biodegradable
Every time you toss a used plastic toothbrush into the bin, there's a chance it’ll get swallowed by a seabird, turtle or seal.
You don’t have to worry about that with the electric bamboo toothbrushes -the handle is compostable and takes as little as 3-4 months to break down.
- They’re recyclable
The soft bristles on the bamboo electric brush are made from nylon which you can recycle with your local collection services. That way, no parts of the toothbrush will go to waste!
- They’re sustainable
Bamboo is often labelled “the most sustainable crop in the world” and with good reason.
It grows super-fast and doesn’t need pesticides or even replanting!
- They’re microbial
Bamboo has an antibacterial property called “bamboo Kun,” which makes bamboo electric toothbrushes naturally antimicrobial. No pesky germs will grow and linger in your toothbrush!
- They’re durable
If you’re concerned that the bamboo electric brush won’t last as long as your plastic brush, you can relax! Bamboo bristles are strong and resilient and will stay intact until your 3rd month replacement.
- They’re economical
One of the top perks of owning a bamboo electric brush is you don’t have to throw it away, you only need to replace the bristles when necessary. You can keep the bamboo handle for as long as you like, which reduces your waste and saves you money in the long run– a double win!
- They look good
When it comes to aesthetics, bamboo electric toothbrushes beat conventional brushes easily! With their earthy, warm tone, and simple yet elegant designs, they’re as just effective as they’re stylish!
There’s no doubt, electric bamboo toothbrushes are a smart move for your sustainable dental hygiene!
