Mindful Mintie Says "Use a Bamboo Toothbrush"

Why use a bamboo toothbrush?

Normally, toothbrushes are made from plastic - a material made from oil. In most areas, you cannot recycle a toothbrush as it is difficult to separate the bristles from the handle. 

A bamboo toothbrush handle is made from the fast-growing bamboo plant, which is sustainable and will bio-degrade without any special industrial equipment. So whether you compost at home or toss in the landfill, they will have decomposed in a a year or so. The bristles are likely to be made from the same nylon material as the plastic version so make sure you remove them before home composting, which you can easily do by pulling them out with a pair of pliers.

More importantly, it is a very simple and low cost change you can make and one that will give you a gentle reminder twice a day when you brush your teeth to make more changes to help the planet.

Why not print out the Mindful Mintie Graphic to remind you? Or share with your friends and family.
