Why move away from traditional plastic toothbrushes?
Eliminating single-use plastics from your life can not only feel liberating but can have a big impact on our planet. Only 9% of plastic produced till date has been recycled the rest was either incinerated (adding to air pollution) or lay in landfills or at the bottom of the ocean (contributing to irreversible damage to our oceans and marine life). You could personally eliminate hundreds of cubic feet of plastic waste from entering landfills and oceans by replacing simple, every day items like toothbrushes to plastic-free, biodegradable alternatives like bamboo and wheat straw.
Most wooden products are not sustainable since to produce them trees need to be cut and those trees take years to regrow – the same is not the case with BAMBOO.
Bamboo takes a few years to establish and mature but thereon- the some species of the bamboo can grow 4 feet in 24 hours. It’s these regenerative powers makes this plant sustainable.
Bamboo absorbs 2x more carbon dioxide than trees, which is why it is known to act as carbon sinks. It also generates a vast amount of oxygen, more than many plants and trees.
Bamboo is approved by the giant panda – gaining our approval too!
Indians hold the neem tree in high regards. In traditional Indian medicine, extracts from its seeds and its leaves were used as treatment for many ailments. Neem wood is also strong and durable.
Various parts of the Neem tree possess astringent and antiseptic activity. Leaf extracts have been widely used in both traditional and conventional times to manufacture toothpaste and mouthwash in the oral care dentistry. Its antibacterial properties due to the presence of nimbidin, Azadirachtin, and nimbinin help to remove many oral aerobic and anaerobic pathogens existing in the oral cavity. Neem bark and leaf extract is most effectively used in preventing cavities and gum disease. Mouthwash containing Neem is a remedy for tooth decay, oral infections, prevents bleeding and sore gums. Twigs of Neem tree are used as chewing sticks by people all over India.
