The Environmental Toothbrush was invented by dentist, Dr Natalya Taylor, who wanted to inspire people to create more simplicity and less pollution in all areas of their lives.
These fantastic toothbrushes have a bamboo handle and bristles made from polymer, which is resistant to microbial growth during normal use.
They are 100% biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary either. Even the packaging is bio-degradable.
In Australia, over 30 million toothbrushes are used and disposed of by Australians each year, amounting to approximately
1000 tonnes of landfill each year. The plastic they’re made of won’t break down in our lifetime. Nor within the lifetime of our children. Imagine that on a global scale!
These brushes break down into compost, leaving no residue, and were a winner in the 2009 news.com.au Green Awards.
To keep your toothbrush in good condition and durability, please be sure to:
* rinse and dry your toothbrush after use
* keep your toothbrush well ventilated to dry
* store unopened toothbrushes in a dry place
For best results, it is recommended you replace your toothbrush monthly.
What a simple, affordable way to help the environment!
