Is there anything we can do about this? Yes.
One of the easiest ways to reduce your environmental impact is to switch from a single use plastic toothbrush to a compostable bamboo toothbrush, and now you have the opportunity to win some from Brush with Bamboo.
They manufacture eco-friendly toothbrushes using minimal plastic. Unfortunately the bristles are still made of certified BPA-free nylon, but they can be recycled. The handle is made of pure bamboo and can be composted, the wrapper is made from plants and is commercially compostable, and the box folds together without using glue. The entire product is verified to be Non-Toxic and USDA Certified Biobased.
All in all, it is a much better alternative to conventional plastic toothbrushes. I have been using mine for years. You can see it in my Zero Waste Toothpaste video here:
