Switch to a bamboo toothbrush
Like it or not, we all have to brush our teeth. But did you know that plastic toothbrushes are a big source of waste? In the US, for example, 1 billion toothbrushes are grown out each year, creating 50 million pounds of waste. We can help this problem by buying bamboo toothbrushes. Instead of sitting in landfill for hundreds of years, they only take six months to biodegrade into the soil. So, next time you need a toothbrush, ask your parents if they can switch to bamboo.
