Did you know that in India alone, more than 150 million plastic toothbrushes are discarded every month? Since every part of them is made of plastic, they remain in the environment for hundreds of years, breaking down into tiny pieces and polluting our water bodies. Bamboo is a far more sustainable option because it is natural, biodegradable and renewable! By replacing something we use everyday with a sustainable alternative, we have a significant impact on the discard on a daily basis.
