Did you know over 1 billion plastic toothbrushes are used every year in the United States, and almost all of them end up in landfills? One way to help avoid this waste is to look for more environmentally friendly alternatives, like brushes with renewable bamboo in lieu of plastic for the handles, which are biodegradable and a much greener choice than conventional brushes. If you do have plastic brushes, consider using them around the house when they are too worn for your teeth. Save them for scrubbing hard-to-clean areas on tile grout and keyboards; you can even use them to give your jewelry and shoes a good cleaning.
