Nearly every piece of plastic ever made still exists! How many throwaway plastic toothbrushes does your household use each year?
If every Aussie uses 4 plastic toothbrushes per year, that's around 96 MILLION plastic toothbrushes that end up in landfill, each and every year. And sadly, plastic toothbrushes don't just end up in landfill - they also tend to end up on our beaches and in our waterways, where the plastic bristle break off and become microplastics that poison our sea life.

Switching to a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush is a simple way to reduce the amount of plastic waste in your home. Your toothbrush is often the first thing you use in the morning, and the last thing you use in the evening before bed - so why not switch to a more sustainable option?
Dentists recommend replacing toothbrushes every 3 months or when bristles become frayed.
Old toothbrushes can be given a second life and used to clean bathroom grout, sink and tapware corners, to clean your bike or to spot clean stains from laundry or furniture.
Disposing of your bamboo toothbrush
The entire toothbrush can be composted or re-purpose as a plant marker in your veggie garden.
