Save the human, save the earth. – I have always believed in this quote. Human beings are the destroyer of the earth. It’s only when we save ourself, then only the earth can be saved. It’s cause and effect.
Why must we save ourself?
Because we are the reason the earth is sick.
Why must we care whether the earth is sick or not?
Because it will all come back to us! It’s already happening.
So, how do we save ourself?
By realizing what we have done to the environment, hence we change our attitude and lifestyle.
It’s as simple as that.
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.
These are the typical shower sponges that we use in our everyday bathing ritual. I think it cost about RM10 for a packet of 4.
