The advantages of the bamboo brush

Today the easiest place to start zero waste at home is undoubtedly the bathroom. The object that the whole family uses 2 to 3 times a day and 365 days a year:the toothbrush.

Every year in France, no less than 1,400 tonnes of plastic toothbrushes are thrown away. Composed of different types of plastic, they cannot be recycled and end up in landfills or in the oceans, a real disaster for the environment and our health.

So why not replace your plastic toothbrush with a bamboo toothbrush that goes directly into the compost and causes no pollution.
The Charles Germain toothbrush is biodegradable since its handle is made of bamboo, a material that decomposes naturally. As for its nylon bristles, it is today the most durable type of bristle on the market since it is biodegradable in the compost. These bristles are well suited to daily use, they do not attack the teeth or the enamel.

For obvious hygienic reasons, the toothbrushes are wrapped in 100% recycled and recyclable paper. The paper and the ink are of vegetable origin, therefore ecological. You can recycle your paper by sorting or composting, it is zero waste.

The transition to the ecological toothbrush has little impact on our lives, yet it has a significant and very positive impact on the environment. The huge advantage of bamboo is that its cultivation does not require fertilizers or pesticides... You don't even need to water it! A big saving of water, and we avoid harmful products for the earth and for humans.

In addition to these many planetary and health benefits, the bamboo toothbrush is often much prettier than a plastic toothbrush. Make the good choice !
