It’s such a normal thing for the majority of the population to just walk into the supermarket, grab a toothbrush, use it for its lifetime and then throw it out and get a new one. Job done. However, did you know that 30 million plastic toothbrushes are disposed of every year in Australia alone? That’s 30 million toothbrushes every year that will not break down in our lifetime and will sit in landfill being an environmental burden on our planet. And by buying those little plastic suckers, you’re just throwing another brush on top of that already humongous pile of crap that only gets bigger and bigger every single day.
Now, i’m not saying you shouldn’t be brushing your teeth (if you have taken this path, keep out of my personal space please). There are wonderful alternatives on the market that are environmentally friendly, biodegradable and great for your teeth, like the PearlBar Bamboo Toothbrush.
The PearlBar Bamboo Toothbrush has a handle made from bamboo, which is an environmentally stable timber and the fastest growing plant on the planet. The black bristles, which i’m sure are foreign to a lot of people, are infused with charcoal which is an antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral agent. It also happens to be one of natures best cleaning and absorbing agents.
I’ve been using my PearlBar for almost a week now and already my teeth feel cleaner and whiter. I have a rather bad habit of pushing quite hard when I brush and I feel when brushing my teeth with the PearlBar I am applying less pressure. For what reason, I don’t know. But it’s working.
To add to its awesomeness, disposing of your PearlBar is easy. When it has tired of brushing your fangs, you just throw it straight in your compost and it decomposes 1/1000th of time quicker than a regular plastic toothbrush. Or, dig a hole in your backyard or garden and bury it. That’s not even a joke. That’s all you have to do.
Switching to an environmentally friendly toothbrush is the best way of ensuring you’re not contributing to the global landfill issue we have and digging an elbow into the side of mother nature and our environment. PearlBar can be purchased online from PearlBar or The Natural Supply Co and is 100% Australian owned and cruelty-free. Get behind this wonderful Australian business and show your support for not only them, but for our environment as well.
