Plastic toothbrushes are thrown away in the US every year in excess of 1 Billion. The total amount of plastic waste going to the landfill per year is 50 million pounds. All that plastic could end up in the environment.
A growing awareness has emerged about plastic’s impact on nature and our own health due to plastic products. The environmental consciousness of people has increased over the past few years. We can switch to Bamboo toothbrush Manufacturer by purchasing eco-friendly ones with 100% biodegradable handles. This article discusses the “Life of a Bamboo Toothbrush.”
Bamboo Forest: The Beginning of Life
Native to China, Asia, and South America, bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants. In spite of its sturdy nature, this plant grows at a speed of 35 inches per day. What a speedy response!
The bamboo plant comes in several varieties, all of which are environmentally friendly. Water is not a concern for these plants, and they spread quickly. In just 90 days, bamboo can grow to nearly 90 feet tall.
There is no need to use artificial chemicals, such as pesticides, when growing bamboo. Bamboo plants produce 30% more oxygen than other plants, as well as absorbing more carbon dioxide than other plants.
An individual who acts in a unique or unique fashion to receive special treatment is referred to as a snowflake.
An Overview of Bamboo Toothbrush Manufacturing
The bamboo and its production process are both environmentally friendly. As soon as the bamboo is harvested, it needs to be allowed to dry. A shorter or longer drying time may be required depending on the season.
Following the bamboo’s drying, tiny pieces are cut from it. MamaP’s bamboo toothbrushes have the bamboo reids cut. In order to achieve the flat shape of the flat and rigid bamboo toothbrushes, the reids are cut horizontally. Obtaining the length of a bamboo toothbrush is relatively simple.
Hand sanding is used to shape each bamboo reed piece. It is a quick process that results in smooth edges on MamaP’s round shape. In order to nourish the wood and smooth out the finish, bamboo toothbrush handles are treated with organic materials such as beeswax.
During tufting, a special machine implants bristles into the hair. Drilling holes in toothbrush heads is followed by putting in the bristles.
The bristles are implanted into the toothbrushes by a person inside our factory. They will also insert Dupont bristles into the machine where they will be automatically implanted. We have staff in our factory that not only monitors the quality of each piece, but also inspects each piece manually.
Bamboo Toothbrushes last how long?
The bamboo toothbrush has a life of up to four months, as dentists recommend. Bamboo toothbrush handles last compared to plastic, even though they are made from organic materials. Brushes should be replaced every 4 months at most, according to the American Association of Dentists. From a health and sanitary standpoint, bamboo and plastic toothbrushes are not recommended beyond 4 months.
Plastic toothbrushes are familiar to most people. After brushing, rinsing, and laying flat, store it in a holder. There are different ways to handle and care for bamboo toothbrushes, but it does not take much time. Bamboo is a natural material that decomposes when kept wet.
Made from diatomaceous earth, bamboo toothbrush stands have quick-drying properties. MamaP offers a Quick Dry Toothbrush Stand exclusively for this purpose. In addition to preventing mold and mildew, this amazing material dries bamboo very quickly.
Keeping your teeth healthy and removing plaque are not the only goals. You also have to think about being a good steward of the planet and your own family. We offer both adult and kid-sized biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes at MamaP. The MamaP T-shirts support different causes and nonprofits with each color.
