Over the 3 years that I worked on the ocean I became increasingly upset by the amount of plastic would float past me on a daily basis.
This made me think, how can I reduce the amount of plastic reaching the ocean? This led me to establish Barnaby's Brushes. I set out to create a product that was not only going to keep teeth clean and healthy, but the environment too.
The plastic toothbrush you use lasts a few weeks or months and then you throw it away, for it to never biodegrade, in fact every toothbrush you have ever used in your lifetime is still on earth today. Now, this is an enormous problem as:
4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year worldwide.
This means that roughly 500,000 plastic toothbrushes were thrown away in the last hour!
Every decade you personally throw away more than 60 toothbrushes.
All of these toothbrushes end up in the worlds landfills or oceans. Our stainless steel handle with interchangeable bamboo heads solves this problem. Every few months you will only be throwing away a tiny little piece of bamboo, which decomposes anyway!
Not only will your new toothbrush be environmentally friendly but it now has style and individuality, it’s a work of art, it feels beautiful in your hand and you will be able to keep it for the rest of your life.
