Unlike a traditional plastic toothbrush, a bamboo toothbrush is 100% biodegradable and can be reused or recycled. As the handle is made from bamboo, it can break down far quicker than plastic toothbrushes as bamboo is a natural growing plant.
For this reason, we now have new bamboo toothbrushes available at Dental Implants & Aesthetics. Our bamboo toothbrushes come in both adult and kids’ sizes so you can grab one for the whole family!
If you would like a biodegradable toothbrush, just ask our friendly staff at your next visit.
There are many reasons why you should use a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush. Our team outlined has several reasons below.
Bamboo toothbrushes are an eco-friendly, alternative solution for a traditional plastic toothbrush. The toothbrush handles are made of bamboo while the bristles are soft and made from nylon.
Our brushes at Dental Implants & Aesthetics are 100% biodegradable and can provide your teeth with a great clean like a traditional brush would.
Before reusing your toothbrush for another purpose, make sure you remove the bristles and dispose of them accordingly.
2. Sustainable option
Bamboo is a natural growing plant which can be replanted and sustained for a long period of time. Due to its natural materials, it may not require any fertilisers or pesticides to help it to grow.
As it is a renewable source, this means it would produce less pollution within the atmosphere as opposed to a plastic toothbrush.
Because of its natural properties, bamboo can be recycled or placed in a compost bin or in your garden to break down.
More than 30 million plastic toothbrushes are thrown away each year. Many of these plastic toothbrushes end up in either landfill or in the ocean.
Plastic may not ever decompose, unlike a bamboo toothbrush as the handle is made of a natural plant.
If you feel your toothbrush has outlived its usage, you do not have to get rid of your brush straight away.
You can still reuse your bamboo toothbrush for other alternative purposes.
Some of the ways you may be able to reuse your bamboo toothbrush include:
- Garden markers
- Cleaning tool
- Pet brush
- Art projects
How long do bamboo toothbrushes last for?
With proper care, your bamboo toothbrush may last around three months. However, this time frame may vary from person to person.
If you are repurposing your toothbrush for activities other than brushing your teeth, it may last longer.
