If we want to live in a way that maximizes our health and sustains our planet, we need to change what we use to brush our teeth.
Plastic toothbrushes persist in landfills and are washed into waterways and oceans, forever polluting the environment. Additionally, the chemicals in the plastic are consumed by us when we use plastic toothbrushes and we add to the toxic burden put on our bodies, which in the long run contributes to disease.
In the ocean, plastics either remain in whole pieces or are broken down into tiny pellets. Ocean currents and storms carry these plastic items far out to sea or where they accumulate in gyres (large areas with water moving in a vortex pattern) like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch or even wash up on remote islands. Tiny filter-feeding animals often ingest the plastic pellets. Larger animals, such as sea turtles and sea birds, mistake the larger plastic pieces for food, or prey on these smaller animals so that the plastic particles travel up the food chain.
The Bamboo Toothbrush:
Our THRIVING TOOTHBRUSH is a 100% natural toothbrush with a handle made of sustainable bamboo and biodegradable polymer bristles that is gentle on teeth and gums to help remove surface stains for naturally whiter teeth.
Brush twice daily with a healthy Toothpaste and replace the brush once every 2-3 months or as needed. It’s important to also keep your toothbrush dry between uses to increase longevity.
