Go clean, go green and zero waste. Smile some more and add confidence in every breath. Get up close and make more conversations that matter. Can you really do all these with bamboo toothbrushes? Yes. But only if we understand why we came up with this innovation in the first place.
The toothbrush can be said as one of the most important inventions of man. It became a necessity the moment we became aware of how important oral hygiene is. Early on we knew that by keeping our teeth and mouth clean, we can avoid certain problems and diseases. And so we learned to brush and do it daily from the day we had our baby teeth. The toothbrush will always and forever will be one’s personal must-have.
But if you turn the history pages back a little, you’d find out how the toothbrush played an interesting role in helping people acquire an improved status and acceptance in the society. Can you believe it? And today, we know that brushing is not just about keeping ourselves clean and healthy. We also tie oral cleanness to standard personal qualifications, and of course, to improved level of confidence.
Great cleaning for that fresh breath and great smile is prerequisite in buying a new toothbrush. Wouldn’t you agree? And just how thankful are we that we can now find all kinds of toothbrushes in the market. Toothbrush handles with a good grip, flexible neck for gentle cleaning of the gums, a tip that reaches to the back teeth, tongue cleaner on its head, and even bristles of all shapes, sizes and color! You can go from the electric type, the travel pack, and to the very simple kind you use at home. But what’s the catch?
According to the National Geographic, “many toothbrushes are unrecyclable because the composite plastics most are now made of are difficult, if not impossible, to break apart efficiently.” It further says that an individual will have used around 300 toothbrushes during his lifetime, and that ‘if you laid out all the toothbrushes thrown away just in the U.S. in a year, they would wrap around the Earth four times!’ It was never too big a feat for the humble toothbrush indeed!
Our toothbrush may have kept those oral wastes from us, but a single piece of it can actually take a long time and a long process to decompose. The modern day plastic toothbrush adds 50 million pounds of wastes to landfills each year. And so it became such a concern in every inevitable way.
So as important as keeping ourselves orally clean and heathy is our need to put forth even just the simplest effort to help out and avoid choking up our seas and dear earth. So it’s about time we go green and zero waste with our biodegradable J&L Naturals Bamboo Toothbrushes! With an ergonomic handle and wavy bristles, this just feels like any plastic toothbrush. They are BPA free and even come in different colors, too! Now you can really smile with confidence without the wastes and worries!
