The 4.7 billion toothbrushes made each year last around 1000 years.
Did you know that there are around 4.7 billion toothbrushes made each year and each of these lasts indefinitely? Imagine in 100 years how many toothbrushes there will be on Earth, buried somewhere, or in the ocean.
I have signed up for the Plastic-Free July. It's still June, but I've started already.
I needed to replace some toothbrushes at home. Rather than buy more plastic disposable ones, I found these 100% biodegradable toothbrushes made from bamboo. When we're finished with them, we'll use them to clean our bikes and taps. After that we'll put them in the compost - fantastic!
