In recent years, we have become a lot more ecologically aware, with most of us making small changes to lessen our carbon footprint.
We are all aware of how single-use plastics are a huge contributor to the overfill of landfills. Which is why we are all trying to do what we can to change this for future generations.
Reusable straws and cups are a great place to start but have you ever thought about changing your hairbrush and toothbrush to an eco-friendlier option?
Seems a little challenging but it is so easy.
The main material used in plastic toothbrushes is petroleum, which requires a lot of energy to make. Plastic toothbrushes are also non-biodegradable as the take a millennium to degrade.

So, whether you want to help make big or small changes, a bamboo toothbrush is a must-have and a great way to start your eco-friendly journey. A quick search online will show you easy and affordable options.
Is that even a thing? Yes, it is, and you wouldn’t even know the difference.
