Purchasing an eco-friendly toothbrush was technically my second step into zero-waste living (composting being the first, that post is in the works!). But it was definitely the first time I implemented zero waste in my morning routine. Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you that I have a penchant for falling into what I call “research rabbit holes”. When I finally came out the other end, I bought these brushes in bulk for my family.
Brush with Bamboo is the world’s first plant-based toothbrush. Every component of their product is plant-based: bristles, handle, wrapper, and box.
Brush with Bamboo is a USDA Certified Biobased Product by United States Government’s Biopreferred Program. A purchase of their toothbrush is a vote for biobased products that are not fossil fuel-based.
I want to emphasize that paragraph above… every purchase is a vote for biobased products that are not fossil fuel-based. That’s a smart company. This is how we change the world; by navigating the systems in place that already exist. We vote with our dollar because we live in a capitalist society and when we want change, we demand it. I appreciate so much that this company does but I especially appreciate the way they speak about these issues. There is no fear-mongering, no pressure, no guilt and no flighty, unrealistic musings of our future. I love that because I am not making this change in my life for the future. I’m making this change to better the quality of my life and the life I share with the world right now.
