With researchers stating that India will get zero waste by 2060-70, with India being the largest producer of waste, we are filled with paradoxical capabilities. However, it does raise a query about: “How do we do?”, “Where do we start?”
Well, the answer is simple, start small, start with your own habits and then things will fall into place.
Small start, start with our habits, how? Answer: Replace your plastic toothbrush. Replace that toothbrush with 100% degradable bamboo toothbrushes that pose zero or less harm to the environment and in the meantime, serve you as well in ways better than a regular toothbrush.
Let me take you onto the ride, stating the advantages of the toothbrush.
- The bristles of the toothbrush remove hard-to-reach plaque easily.
- They are eco-friendly.
- They are BPA-free
- The soft bristles also wash away the surface stains.
- It can also be used to massage your gums because of the soft bristles.
Long story short, switching to bamboo is a win-win situation. The manual toothbrush whose handle is made up of plastic is replaced by Bamboo handles which have zero negative impact on your surroundings.
Think about it: it is recommended that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months; doing this for a year means you’ll be using four in a year. Now let’s be conservative and suppose every Indian uses 2 plastic toothbrushes in a given year; that’s 50 million plastic pens that need to be handled every year. Imagine the impact this will have in 10, 50, or 100 years. The plastic toothbrush you use today will last for generations. Be the Change and use a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush. You can also subscribe to a toothbrush and have it delivered home monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly.
Bamboo toothbrushes are eco-friendly, sustainable, and safe. These brushes are the future. It’s always better to start today than to wait for tomorrow. Get yourself one, today.
