Sustainable Step – Bamboo toothbrush

The Sustainable Steps series provides quick and easy tips about how to make more sustainable choices in your everyday life.


Did you know that every plastic toothbrush you have ever used still exists somewhere?  Plastic toothbrushes are not recyclable and usually end up in landfill or in our natural environments. 

There is any easy switch. Bamboo toothbrushes.

There are many bamboo toothbrushes on the market and they are generally around the same price as plastic toothbrushes. The best thing is that they are becoming more and more accessible. You can find them at eco and health shops, chemists, online and even some major supermarkets.   

Because bamboo is a fast growing sustainable material that can be composted at the end of its life, making the switch to a bamboo toothbrush is an easy change that can make a big difference.
