In South Africa, a country with 53 million people, one could say that approximately 212 million conventional plastic toothbrushes are thrown away and therefore sent to landfill each year. Globally 3.5 billion are sent to landfill, which amounts to 35 000 tons of waste per year conservatively, as the average manual toothbrush weighs 10g-20g. These plastic toothbrushes can’t be recycled and do not biodegrade. This means that they end up in a landfill or in our oceans; impacting our environment by contaminating the soil and groundwater and being ingested by wildlife. This contributes to the death of millions of land and marine wildlife each year.
Bamboo is a sustainable alternative that has minimal impact on the environment to grow and make into products. Simply bamboo’s natural toothbrush is made from sustainably grown MOSO bamboo. This bamboo variety is not one eaten by pandas and as such does not impact their food security. In addition, it can grow back at rates as much as approx. 1 meter per day.
We have an obligation to preserve our beautiful planet for future generations.
Our Simply Bamboo Toothbrushes are proudly South African designed. We’ve focused on providing you with a sleek high quality and ergonomic design– aiming to give you a toothbrush that looks good, feels good to hold, and most importantly feels good on your teeth.
We have used soft bristles as these come recommended by dentists due to the fact that they are less abrasive on your teeth and gums allowing you to gently clean your mouth.
Our bristles are also slim and charcoal infused, allowing for better absorption of dirt particles and more precise cleaning by getting to those hard to reach places between teeth.
