Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I had never put much thought into toothbrushes before. I used the one the dentist gave me every 6 months. I never considered the materials they were made from, or their environmental impact. I just used them to brush my teeth. I suspect that's how most of us operate. I'd like to challenge you to think about it a little more today.
Have you heard of bamboo toothbrushes before? I ran across them at one of the hotels we stayed at in China, and that was my first exposure to them. Last month, I received 2 WooBamboo toothbrushes for review in an eco-friendly, recycled mailer. I was pleased to see that this was a company that cared about the environment, even in the little things.
The WooBamboo toothbrush is organic. It's made of bamboo grown without chemicals or pesticides, and then coated in natural wax. Bamboo is sustainable, and can grow up to 4' in a day! Bamboo is also naturally antimicrobial, so your toothbrush stays cleaner. Finally, bamboo is biodegradable. It will break down naturally, as opposed to plastic toothbrushes, which will still be sitting in a landfill when your grandkids are old enough to vote.
But, practically speaking, what's the WooBamboo toothbrush really like? The handle is smooth and lightweight. It's bristles are soft, and comfortable. I really like the angle of the bristles at the tip. They're perfect for getting the hard to reach places in the back. This toothbrush feels gentler than my old plastic one, too. I like the way this toothbrush performs, and I feel good about using it, as well.
You can purchase your own WooBamboo toothbrush at their website. The one I'm using is the standard handle with soft bristles. They're also available in multi-packs on Amazon. You can connect with WooBamboo on Facebook.
This toothbrush fits in with my desire to purchase healthier, safer, more natural products for my family in 2014. It may seem like a small step, but small steps add up!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
