Is a Bamboo Toothbrush Right for You?

Issue Time:2022/06/23
Bamboo toothbrushes are becoming a popular alternative to plastics as more and more people reconsider plastic products. We produce more than 359 million tons of plastic each year, much of which ends up in landfills. Plastics are not designed to break down. Some plastic products, such as straws and toothbrushes, are difficult to recycle. Bamboo toothbrushes aren't new, but before you switch, find out why bamboo can be a great alternative to reducing household plastic waste.

What is a bamboo toothbrush?

Bamboo toothbrushes are manual toothbrushes that are designed to resemble the toothbrushes you'll find on any store shelf. Bamboo toothbrushes have long handles and bristles that remove food debris and plaque from your teeth. The key difference is that the long handle is made from more sustainable bamboo instead of plastic.

Bamboo toothbrushes are one of the oldest types of toothbrushes. The earliest toothbrushes were made in China using bamboo and other natural materials, such as wild boar bristles. Today's bamboo toothbrushes use nylon for the bristles like most toothbrushes today. Some manufacturers still use wild boar hair as bristles or inject activated charcoal into the bristles.

Are bamboo toothbrushes more environmentally friendly?

Bamboo does have a smaller ecological footprint than plastic because bamboo plants grow rapidly and can regrow the material used to produce toothbrushes. Bamboo is also biodegradable if used in its raw form, such as for toothbrush handles.

After the nylon bristles are removed, bamboo toothbrush handles can be composted, reused as garden plant markers, or for other household purposes! However, like plastic toothbrush handles, they can take up landfill space if thrown away.

Is a bamboo toothbrush good for my teeth?

Bamboo toothbrushes work just as well on your teeth as plastic toothbrushes. When choosing any type of toothbrush, consider the size of the head, the shape of the handle, and the bristles. It's best to use a toothbrush with soft bristles and a comfortable handle that fits easily into narrow areas of the mouth.

You should replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or if the bristles are visibly damaged. Replacing your old toothbrush with a new one can help keep your teeth clean. Say you have more questions about switching to a bamboo toothbrush. In this case, your dental hygienist can make other suggestions to keep your mouth healthy while considering plastic waste.

The above briefly describes why you should choose a bamboo toothbrush. If you want to know more or want to buy a bamboo toothbrush, please contact us.
