As we all know, plastics are cheap, widely used and valuable resources in many aspects. They provide a lot of convenience for our daily lives and are one of the indispensable raw materials for many products. Products made of plastic are convenient, economical, and popular with businesses and consumers. They are almost everywhere in life. However, it has created a one-off lifestyle. With the continuous acceleration of human industrialization, the global natural resources are constantly being developed. The vast majority of plastics, such as plastics, are thrown away after being used only once and cannot be taken by nature. The decomposed material must attract our attention. Among them, plastic toothbrushes are a global garbage problem.

 

Many daily necessities contain plastic, such as bottles, straws, coffee cups, shopping bags, plastic bags, tableware, tableware, cotton swabs… the list is long. This is indeed a very serious problem. But the good news is that we can take the first step: rejection. From rejecting the use of products made of plastic, to starting to use fully biodegradable products. This transition may be difficult, but it is very effective. As an unsustainable waste of resources, plastic pollution has become an environmental problem. So, instead of continuing to be part of the problem, it is better to take a small step to reduce our collective plastic footprint.

 

Traditional plastic toothbrushes are mainly made of polypropylene plastic and nylon, both of which come from non-renewable fossil fuels, so they are essentially indestructible. What does this mean? This means that the first toothbrush we had when we were young is still hovering in a certain corner of the earth in some form, endangering the health of nature.

 

Plastic toothbrushes discarded at hand cannot be decomposed or recycled. After being buried in the land or the ocean, they will enter the ecosystem. According to the normal use of replacement every three months, according to the global population of 6 billion, 24 billion will be lost a year. In New Zealand, 1.5 million toothbrushes are discarded in the environment every year, 99% of which are plastic toothbrushes! In the United States, about 8 million plastic particles are discharged into the habitat of marine life every day. There are currently approximately 5.25 trillion plastics in the ocean, 92% of which are microplastics! What a terrible fact this is! As a member of the earth, how can we improve this situation? We can take a small and simple action: switch to a biodegradable toothbrush, such as our company’s biodegradable bamboo toothbrush.

 

Bamboo is a natural plant that is completely biodegradable, so it is a renewable and sustainable resource. At the same time, it is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, so there is no need to worry about its mining volume. We use BBM, a pure natural organic raw material, and the products made from it have good tensile strength, waterproof and oil resistance, ensuring comfortable use and rest assured.

 

Come and order our company’s fully biodegradable toothbrush! It has no plastics, no carcinogenic plasticizer, no fluorescent agent, no pesticide added, heat&frost resistant, compostable, nature decomposable, recyclable.Why don’t you choose it?
