THE PROBLEM WITH PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSHES
Approximately one billion toothbrushes are thrown out each year in the US alone, National Geographic estimated.
“The American Dental Association suggests that everyone replace their toothbrushes every three or four months. At that rate, brushers in the U.S. alone would go through over one billion toothbrushes each year. And if everyone around the world followed those recommendations, about 23 billion toothbrushes would get trashed annually. Most are traditional toothbrushes, but some 55 million U.S. brushers use electric toothbrushes each year, so some number of those plastic-handled, battery-containing objects also end up in the waste stream each year”.

Thankfully, though, there’s a better way. While we can’t give up brushing our teeth, we can use the toothbrushes made of natural materials like bamboo instead of plastic which cannot be recycled.
BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH BENEFITS
To increase the competitiveness of products with lowest production cost, nowadays, most commodities are nearly made without consideration of their end-of-life. They have nowhere to go to be recycled, reused, or composted so they are thrown out after their time is up.
However, by choosing products made of natural materials, such as bamboo toothbrush, we can create a less wasteful system. The majority of the bamboo toothbrush is completely biodegradable, making it an ideal choice for anyone who wants to move towards a low-waste home and personal-care routine!
Some bamboo plants can grow at a rate of 0.00003 km/h. Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on Earth. In fact, the bamboo can grow almost a metre in a single day (Source: “Why does bamboo grow so fast?”, Luis Villazon – Science Focus). That’s 1,000 times as fast as oak and other hardwood trees grow.
Because of its fast growth rate, bamboo can be harvested within 3–5 years unlike most softwood 10–20 years, and also they have biomass of 2–5% unlike wood 10–30% (According to Case Study: “Environmental Impacts of Bamboo as a Substitute Construction Material in Nigeria”, J. Atanda – ScienceDirect)
Bamboo grows in dense forests where little light reaches the ground and there is strong evolutionary pressure to reach the sunlight as quickly as possible.
Bamboo shoots are connected to their parent plant by an underground stem, called a rhizome. This means the shoot doesn’t need any leaves of its own, until it reaches full height. Bamboo also grows with constant diameter. Unlike woody plants, bamboo doesn’t waste energy on growth rings that progressively thicken the stalk. It’s just a single stick, growing straight up.
Moreover, what’s fascinating about bamboo is that it does not die when harvested – the bamboo plant will actually grow a new shoot from its existing root system after harvesting.
Not only does growing bamboo typically have very little negative impact on the environment, but it can actually be net-positive!
Bamboo sequesters carbon from the atmosphere into soil and biomass very quickly. This makes the plant an important part of our journey towards reversing climate change.
Bamboo production is actually one of the solutions presented by Project Drawdown, the leading nonprofit organization for research on climate solutions. The organization has calculated that bamboo production can reduce / sequester approximately 8 – 22 gigatons of CO2 equivalent from 2020 to 2050! (“Bamboo Production“, Project Drawdown)
