Look what my lovely flattie gave me! The Environmental Toothbrush is 100% biodegradable made from sustainable bamboo. DREAM! I feel really sad when I recognize pointless waste in my life (plastic razors anyone?) so finding an affordable way of making good purchases makes me sparkle a little bit more. Check these words from the website of The Environmental Toothbrush:
"In Australia, over 30 million toothbrushes are used and disposed of by Australians each year, amounting to approximately 1000 tonnes of landfill each year. The plastic they’re made of won’t break down in our lifetime. Nor within the lifetime of our children. Imagine that on a global scale.
At AU$36 for a box of 12 they are cheap as chips!Invented by a Brisbane dentist, The Environmental Toothbrush is a simple solution. Made from bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, they are 100% biodegradable, environmentally sustainable, and do not pollute the environment. The amazing growth and self-renewing ability of bamboo means that deforestation is not necessary either. Even our packaging is bio-degradable."
