It is no secret that strong teeth are important for good health. Taking good care of your teeth has become part of a healthy lifestyle. Nowadays, you can also take care of your teeth in a responsible and sustainable way, by using a bamboo toothbrush. In this article we will tell you more about the advantages of bamboo toothbrushes and give you tips to choose the best bamboo toothbrush. Here’s how to clean your current toothbrush.
Taking good care of yourself and the world around you is becoming increasingly important. With a bamboo toothbrush you can give your teeth the care they need in a sustainable way.
Below we discuss the three biggest advantages of brushing with toothbrushes made from bamboo.
Bamboo is a natural material, which after use easily dissolves back into nature. Bamboo also grows very easily and requires little or no resources. Bamboo saves a lot of energy and raw materials that are needed for the production of plastic.
Bamboo has natural antibacterial properties. Because a toothbrush is an ideal place for bacteria to multiply, choosing a bamboo toothbrush is also wise if you value good hygiene.
BPA, or Bisphenol A, is a chemical used in many plastic materials. The danger of using BPA lies in the fact that small pieces can come loose and we can ingest them, for example through the packaging of food. Too much BPA can lead to fertility problems or hormone abnormalities. Toothbrushes made of bamboo are BPA-free, and thus completely safe.
Growing bamboo is fast and without any tools, but there are more advantages that are important to mention. Because bamboo has many roots, this type of grass prevents soil erosion. Furthermore, bamboo absorbs CO2 and releases oxygen. So with a natural bamboo toothbrush, you help nature a little.
A bamboo toothbrush is a good step towards sustainable oral care. The brushing experience of a bamboo toothbrush is as good as with a regular toothbrush and your teeth will be as clean with a bamboo toothbrush as with a plastic toothbrush.
Besides choosing a natural toothbrush, you can also make oral care more sustainable by switching to toothpaste in tablet form delivered in refillable jars or by using floss made from corn or recycled plastic. A beautiful smile no longer has to come at the expense of the environment!
Bamboo toothbrushes are for sale in many different shops. For the widest choice and the best price, it’s best to buy this toothbrush online, from a shop with enough knowledge about oral care. If you want to buy the toothbrush in a real shop, you should go to a health food shop or a shop selling sustainable products. The price of a bamboo toothbrush depends on the brand and the quality of the toothbrush.
