Bamboo Toothbrush

A while back I mentioned I tried using a zero waste bamboo toothbrush to help reduce my plastic waste. I still don’t get how the nylon bristles are biodegradable unless it’s a special grade nylon that biodegrades down quickly, but anyway more on that later. 

I recently gave it another try a few weeks ago and quickly in a day got over I’m brushing my teeth with a twig, which initially put me off. Neither have the bristles like regular toothbrushes started making my teeth feel like they’re on edge after 3 weeks which is a big deal for me.  Continue reading “Bamboo Toothbrush”

Recycle Less Update #4

Earlier this year after watching zero waste videos on YouTube I decided to start reducing my ‘waste’ by recycling less. Notably my plastic waste, having less items in general and start shopping more consciously. I know I’ll never be 100% zero waste and after making good strides for a few months, I’ve kinda hit a stand still. And it’s a little disheartening. I was doing so well!
