#ONEarth Basics: Why choose Bamboo over plastic?
Plastic takes over 1000 years to decompose - ergo, every plastic product ever thrown away is still there on the planet somewhere, choking landfills or oceans. And there are about 8 billion people out there. Think about this for a few seconds.
Bamboo, on the other hand, takes anywhere from a few months to about 5 years to decompose, depending on ambient conditions. It can grow on degraded lands, and is among the fastest growing plants in the world (some species growing as fast as 36 in within 24 hours).
Also, Bamboo is a grass. Not a tree.

I appreciate the minimal and eco-friendly packaging of the product received. I liked the toothbrushes. Just a feedback for the brand- one of the toothbrushes did not have the brand name engraved on it. And it also had a slight wax like sticky black substance on its bristles. Nonetheless, I washed it and used it. Thank you for the speedy and smooth delivery. The team is great at communication, indeed :) All the best!
Thanks Vidura, we will surely work on that.
These are amazing and strong just go for it
