Why Bamboo? 🎋
Every year in the United States, roughly a billion plastic toothbrushes are trashed and left to waste away. That is 50 million pounds of plastic sent to landfills yearly!
Over 16.5 million tons of plastic are dumped into the world's ocean, where they break down into microplastics that can choke animals and get into our food. A 2018 study by National Geographic found that 90% of sea salt brands have microplastics in their products.
Additionally, plastic toothbrushes require resources such as crude oil, natural gas, and coal to manufacture. These materials create massive amounts of pollution, disrupt ecosystems, and are not renewable.
Thankfully, bamboo can solve this dilemma.
Bamboo is one of the world's fastest-growing plants, making it renewable and practical for mass production.
To add to this, growing and extracting bamboo creates a minuscule carbon footprint compared to the fracking sites used for plastic and is a biodegradable material.
By going bamboo, you reduce your carbon footprint and help create a business incentive to stop producing plastics and start growing more bamboo!
