Bamboo Toothbrush by Gaia Guy
I’m happy to say that I’ve tried my first bamboo toothbrush! I received a toothbrush from Newell and I’m excited to share a review on how these are biodegradable and made from renewable bamboo. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and with over 1,000 strains, some bamboo species can grow up to 35 inches aday.
That being said, not only is bamboo a highly renewable resource, it’s
sustainable due to its ability to quickly grow and naturally replenish
toothbrushes are made with a 100% natural bamboo handle and bamboo
charcoal bristles that act as an antimicrobial agent. The brushes are
also BPA-free, lead-free, phthalates-free, and guilt free! The packaging
is eco-friendly too; made from recycled cardboard with no glue.
Ian of NEWELL makes
a great point on how strange it is that we surround ourselves with so
much plastic, let alone put plastic in our mouths every day.
Toothbrushes get thrown out every few months, so the average person uses
about 300 toothbrushes in their lifetime… yikes! That’s a lot of plastic going into the landfill. Luckily, NEWELL brushes are a much more eco-friendly option that you can toss into your compost bin. NEWELL took
inspiration of creating biodegradable products by mimicking nature to
achieve a sustainable, ethical grave for brushes that were made from the
earth, and then for mother earth.
brushes last as long as conventional toothbrushes and are a daily
reminder that you made a choice to be eco-friendly. Isn’t that a nice
way to start your day?
Along with my nifty new bamboo toothbrush I decided to try a zero-waste toothpaste recipe, and you guys, my teeth feel so clean. It’s super simple! All you need is:
Peppermint essential oil (optional)
one part baking soda to two parts coconut oil, and add drops of
essential oil for a minty kick. I mixed my paste in a reusable air tight
tin, but a small mason jar would work well too.
this toothpaste with the bamboo toothbrush felt amazing on my teeth. My
mouth felt fresh, sanitized, and not irritated at all. I’d definitely
recommend this combo, and I’m happy that I will no longer have to buy
toothpaste! This do-it-yourself toothpaste is a confident reminder that I
can control what I put in my body, what I spend my money on, and I
can make my own decisions on how I take care of myself. I am all about
