WHY SWITCH TO SUSTAINABILITY?
The first ever toothbrush you used as a child still exists somewhere on this earth.
Now let that sink in.
The world’s population comprises 7.53 billion people, that makes roughly 29.4 billion toothbrushes each year. On average, a plastic toothbrush weighs around 20g and so it can be calculated that the whole of humanity produces 600 million kg of plastic toothbrush waste in only 365 days!
Wouldn't it be better if you could keep your pearly whites clean and healthy while doing the same for the planet?
IS IT A WISE CHOICE?
Fun trivia time, bamboo is a sustainable and compostable timber that happens to grow and thrive in abundance. It has antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal and odour-resistant properties. Plus, it assures you a good night's sleep knowing you aren’t responsible for the devastating death of some magnificent aquatic creature.
Vimi’s bamboo toothbrushes have a curved handle which allows you a good grip.They look way more aesthetic while doing the same job as their plastic alternative.
The bristles are made of nylon, which can be used with toothpaste, tabs or powders. It comes in three bristle types: Soft, Medium and firm, each denoted by a different colour.
HOW TO GO ABOUT IT?
Wash before and after cleaning.
Don’t let the tap water run.
Replace toothbrush when the bristles look and feel worn out.
GO AN EXTRA MILE TO UPCYCLE
Mother nature will thank you for upcycling your shabby toothbrush before recycling it.
The bamboo handle makes a great garden marker. Or once it’s toothbrushing days are over, you can use it to clean debris stuck between your keyboard, or scrub your shoes.
HOW TO DISPOSE RESPONSIBLY?
The handle will directly go into your compost bin.
But before that happens, you need to pull out the nylon bristles and place them in your curbside bin. The metal panel and product packaging will be dumped into the recycling bin.
