OVER A BILLION TOOTHBRUSHES END UP IN LANDFILLS EVERY YEAR IN NORTH AMERICA!
ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSHES LEAK TOXINS INTO THE ENVIRONMENT!
Electric toothbrushes too are typically made of plastic and rubber but that also have the added negativity of requiring batteries that when not disposed of properly cause terrible damage to the environment. Even rechargeable batteries end up needing to be replaced over time and these batteries often get discarded into landfills where the battery acid leaks into nearby oceans and waterways harming wildlife and the environment.
PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSHES ARE A TOXIC SOUP OF CHEMICALS!
Plastic toothbrushes are made from a combination of plastic material derived from crude oil, rubber and a mix of plastic and cardboard for the packaging. It's not just the disposal of the brushes that are the issue. The manufacturing process for plastic toothbrushes contains a myriad of harmful plastic by-products as well as petroleum and crude oil!
PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSHES TAKE OVER 400 YEARS TO DECOMPOSE!
They remain in landfills indefinitely. Plastic toothbrushes stain the landfills with their presence! As they settle into the landfill, they release chemicals into the air. This results in even more damage to the environment.
PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSHES POLLUTE OCEANS AND BEACHES!
They end up in our oceans and washed up on our beaches or consumed by marine life, harming them and potentially killing them off. Our little fish buddies definitely do not appreciate the extra company. A lot of this plastic gets broken down into smaller pieces. These small pieces end up being ingested by nearby marine life. One could even end up in your meal...
Available in adult and child size. These are one of the very few toothbrushes available in the market which have compostable bristles. When you are done using your brush, just compost it in your yard or even a flower pot.
