I need to change my toothbrush recently as it’s very dirty and the bristle is quite frizzy already. I also need to get a new dental floss as I’ve emptied the current one. I never realized the impact of toothbrush and dental floss on our environment until recently. Wow, both are plastic?! Gosh, I’m so blind… but not anymore.
To lessen the burden of our earth and for my well-being, I bought a bamboo toothbrush and a natural dental floss. Both are biodegradable. Yay! Once done, I can compost them.
Bamboo toothbrush with horsehair (bristle). The horsehair is quite stiff and flexible, almost like the regular bristle.
Natural dental floss made of pure raw silk and coated with beeswax. I bought the refill, as the original floss comes in glass bottle and stainless cutter. I don’t need that (plus it’s cheaper). I can just use scissors.
As you can see both packagings are eco-friendly too. Feels great to do a small part in lessening earth’s burden.
Tsk, I still rely on interdental brush (plastic). Will make the change once they run out.
Tsk tsk again, I’ve been using my own homemade natural toothpaste (no more fluoride!) since last year June.
