Do you know OLA Bamboo products? This Quebec company has decided to make a difference for the planet by designing bamboo products, such as utensils, straws, cleansing pads and, of course, toothbrushes. According to the manufacturer's website, ''by purchasing an OLA Bamboo toothbrush, you are helping dispose of more than 4.9 billion plastic toothbrushes that get thrown away every year.''
The handles of OLA Bamboo toothbrushes are fully compostable and biodegradable. The angular bristles and the compact head allow for effective brushing, especially of the molars.
A good point: bamboo is grown without the use of pesticides or insecticides. Add to this that this species of wood had, according to some studies, natural antimicrobial properties.
Bamboo toothbrushes are THE ONLY green alternative on the market today that avoids plastic handles
The family pack includes:
- 4 adult toothbrushes
- 4 children's toothbrushes (soft bristles).
''My family and I tested the soft bristle toothbrushes, morning and evening, for 45 days. ''
- Always allow your toothbrush to air dry.
- Remove the bristles with pliers or cut the brush head before throwing the handle in the compost.
''We loved our experience. The bristles, made of high quality nylon, remain beautiful even after several uses. As the handles are all the same color, you have to rely on the bristles to recognize your toothbrush in the jar. Nice idea! As a result of this test, it is clear: at our house, we have put an end to plastic toothbrushes. We have adopted the OLA Bamboo ones without hesitation, because it is an ecological solution which corresponds to our family values! An essential gesture for going green in our daily lives. ''
