Billions of plastic products, including your toothbrush, end up in landfills every year, which can take millions of years to decompose! You may not realize that using a plastic toothbrush does harm to our environment, but if you think about it, there are 8 billion people in the world. Dentists recommend changing out your toothbrush every three months. That’s A LOT of plastic! And unfortunately, all that waste releases chemicals into our environment and damages our planet Earth. We care about our home and also your oral health, which is why our office offers eco-friendly bamboo toothbrushes as an awesome alternative.
One of the many benefits of WooBamboo toothbrushes is that the handles are biodegradable; so, they won’t have a negative impact on our planet by ending up in waste sites. Another fantastic bonus of switching to bamboo products is its antimicrobial properties. No bacteria on the handles! Not only are they grown organically, but are also sustainable, easily grown, and economical. And let’s face it, bamboo toothbrushes are aesthetically pleasing with its sleek and classy vibe. If you’re worried about the pandas, don’t worry! We wouldn’t steal from our furry friends. WooBamboo is made of Moso bamboo, which is not a part of their diet.
Ultimately, we only have one planet, and we should all work together to take care of it every single day. We must listen to what our crying Earth needs and take action! For us and for the generations after us. Small changes, such as switching to bamboo toothbrushes, can have a significant effect in the right direction if everyone joins forces.
