Our suggestion for your toothbrush use follows: Use a brand new toothbrush every three to four months to ensure you’re getting the most out of your dental hygiene. Unfortunately, if you’re doing your best to cut down on waste, tossing out three to four toothbrushes a year isn’t going to sit well with your goals. The good news is that you’re not stuck between a rock and a hard place. Instead, you have some very simple options that will help you follow our suggestions without leaving your personal standards behind.
Look For Sustainable Materials
You don’t have to purchase plastic when you’re shopping for a toothbrush. Instead, put forth a bit of effort in seeking out sustainable products. You will discover, of course, that there are companies out there who shares your goals! What else might you discover? Well, you will see that there are eco-friendly companies that offer dental hygiene products using sustainably grown materials. You may also find items that will biodegrade, so you don’t need to give creating waste a second thought.
Join A Toothbrush Recycling Program
Believe it or not, you can recycle your toothbrush. With just the tiniest amount of searching online, you will find that companies (like Colgate) run programs to collect dental hygiene product waste in order to recycle it rather than contribute to landfills. You may join for free, while you ensure your toothpaste tubes, caps, toothbrushes, and more are properly disposed of (and reused) without harming the environment.
