Brushing our teeth everyday is just something that we naturally do and is probably not something you really think of having an environmental impact, however the reality is so different. Every year at least 8million tonnes of plastics leak into the ocean and this staggering figure is expected to increase to two per minute by 2030 and four per minute by 2050, at which stage there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans!!!
Now as crazy as it sounds, just by switching from a plastic to a bamboo toothbrush can have a huge effect on our oceans and its something that each and every one of us use every single day. Amazingly 99% of the toothbrushes that the world are using are made out of plastic and cannot be recycled, which means they end up in our oceans or landfill. By switching to a bamboo toothbrush you can have an impact on this figure decreasing! Bamboo tootbrushes are a sustainable products that directly contribute to a sustainable future. Bamboo is a great material to use for a toothbrush as bamboo can grow up to 2 meters per day and is completely bio-degradable!! Plus our Green Monkey toothbrushes look pretty sleek and they come in both adult and kids so the whole family can make the switch.
