You probably know by now that our oceans and landfills are overflowing with plastic. What’s worse is that a third of our garbage has wound up in the stomachs of more than half of the world’s fish and marine birds. This amounts to about 8 million metric tons a year. Worldwide, over 3 billion plastic toothbrushes are disposed of each year… and you can guess where they end up.Read More...
Ecofriendly, sustainably sourced bamboo toothbrushes
If we continue down this path, by the year 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans. This is why Kappi has radically introduced compostable, biologically sourced bamboo toothbrushes to the Australian market. We want to do our bit to protect our only home, planet Earth (and who doesn’t?). Sustainability begins in the home – in our own bathrooms – and our aim is to reduce our carbon footprints through the simple act of providing eco bamboo toothbrushes.
The alternative to a plastic toothbrush is an eco bamboo toothbrush
Humans haven’t always used plastic toothbrushes – in fact, as early as the 7th century, we brushed our teeth using bamboo, bone and animal hair. At Kappi, we’re trying to reduce our reliance on plastic by getting back to bare basics: we’re aiming to live in a world where there’s bamboo toothbrushes in every bathroom.
Most people brush their teeth twice daily, which means that the average toothbrush has a lifespan of roughly three to four months. Plastic toothbrushes are made from hard polypropylene plastic and nylon bristles, which are non-biodegradable. Our sustainably sourced, fully biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes come in a pack of four and are perfect for family or individual use. Maintain your teeth, conserve the environment – everyone’s a winner with our eco toothbrushes.
