Make One Small Change - Use a Bamboo Toothbrush.

Adopting eco friendly habits, for me, is easier taken one small step at a time.  Lots of small changes add up to a big difference.
 
I bought a bamboo toothbrush, from here on Ebay.  It's handle is bamboo, and you could choose plastic or bamboo bristles.  I went all out and got the bamboo bristles, even though I thought they'd be scratchy and gross.  They are not scratchy and gross, they are nice and smooth and feel like plastic ones!  I like my bamboo toothbrush, it cleans my teeth nicely and it looks nice hanging out in my new bathroom (not like my previous florescent green one!).  It would be good if the end of the head was a little thinner, to make cleaning my back teeth easier, I can still get round there but it's a bit of a struggle.  I have a rechargeable electric toothbrush that I alternate with, so it's not too much of a problem.  And, it was £2.50, which is more than I'd pay for a plastic toothbrush, but cheaper than some of the other 'eco' options I've seen.

Plus, it came in a really cute box with a panda brushing his tooths on it!



Have you made an eco-friendly swap recently?
