Did you know a trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year? That there over 850 million toothbrushes end up in the landfills every year? That nearly a million plastic beverage bottles are sold every minute and that Americans toss millions of plastic straws every day? Our office alone gave out over 1500 toothbrushes last year. There is nine million tons of plastic waste that ends up in the ocean every year! That is a LOT!!!! These are just a few of the reasons why we want to become a more eco friendly office. 

Along with trying out different types of floss, we decided to go and try different kinds of toothbrushes that are better for the environment. We discovered that there are toothbrushes that are made out of bamboo and that they are biodegradable! We have tried several different kinds of bamboo toothbrushes and these are our thoughts about each one. The first one we tried is made by Wowe,it has a thick and wide handle and is white in color and has 12 columns and 4 rows of bristles. The texture of the bristles are soft and contoured and they come in a cardboard package. These brushes come in a pack of 4 for $10.97 which makes them $2.74 per brush. 

The next brush is made by Bamboo Roots. This brush is very similar to the Wowe one as far as the handle size and bristle size, but it does have a longer stretch of bristles and is more of a medium- soft brush. The downside to this brush was that although it came in cardboard packaging, the toothbrush itself comes in a plastic bag. These brushes came in a pack of 4 for $8.21, which makes them $2.05 per brush. 

Another brand we tried is Electric Avenue. Their brush has a cylindrical shape with different color ends so family members can tell their brushes apart. All the bristles are the same length and there are 9 columns with 4 rows of bristles. This brush also comes in a natural color. Although it's labeled as a soft brush, it a more comparable to a medium brush in our opinion. These brushes come in a pack of 4 for $10.97, which makes them $2.74 per brush. 

Babbo LLC makes a brush that is very similar to the Electric Avenue brush but these brushes come in a natural color and black. In addition, they also have different colors on the end of the handle so it is easy to tell them apart. These brushes are a bit more expensive at $10.97 for 2 brushes, which makes them about $5.48 per brush. 

The last toothbrush we tried is made by Dr. Perfect. The handle is thin, flat, and contoured. There are 10 columns and 4 rows of bristles, with varying lengths of bristles. The bristles on this brush were soft and came in a natural color. These brushes also come in an individually wrapped paper bag. The brushes come in a pack of 12 for $13.00 making them $1.08 per brush! After trying all these different bamboo brushes, we decided on a favorite. And the winner is… the Dr. Perfect brush. This brush not only is the most economical brush, but also has the softest bristles and is the most eco-friendly. 

We hope this review helped! Happy brushing!
