Did you know over 4.7 billion plastic non-biodegradable toothbrushes are dumped in landfills and oceans every year worldwide? Plastic toothbrushes can be found in every plastic waste dump, floating in our polluted oceans, and have even been found inside the stomachs of birds. What’s even crazier is that harmful chemicals leached by plastics are present in the bloodstream and tissues of almost every human being, including newborns.
Replacing plastic toothbrushes with bamboo is a great alternative and will support your family’s shift towards a sustainable, natural lifestyle. Not only does switching from plastic to bamboo provide a teachable moment for children and adults, once you switch you will become part of the global mission to reduce plastic pollution!
So go ahead, buy yourself and everyone you love a bamboo toothbrush this holiday season and commit to reducing the use of plastic materials in 2016 and beyond! Here are two of my favorite brands. Visit my site to learn about more natural home products and natural skin care products.
