EVERYDAY SUPERHERO #4 Preyé aka Bamboozalingly Brilliant Bamboo Toothbrush Woman
This superhero has swapped her old plastic toothbrush for a biodegrade bamboo one made by Bristle. 99% biodegradable, FSC-certified handle and BPA-free nylon bristles (a very 😇 brush!), when it has brushed until it can brush no more, she takes the bristles out and pops it in the compost. This is a brilliant way of not adding to the billions of plastic toothbrushes thrown away every year. It's estimated that a total of 12.2 million tonnes of plastic enters the marine environment each year. 94% of the plastic in our oceans is actually on the sea floor, where it is almost impossible to clean up. Plastic toothbrushes are difficult to recycle and it's fair to assume that every toothbrush you’ve ever used in your lifetime is still somewhere on Earth, leaching harmful pollutants into the soil and water.
