Plastic toothbrush travel is destroying the environment
Plastic brushes contribute to plastic waste in tourism-related activities. Every year, millions of domestic and international visitors visit Vietnam. This is the same as the number of disposable plastic toothbrushes dumped into the environment. Only a small percentage of them are gathered and recycled. Most are buried in the soil or dumped into the ocean, causing harm on the environment.
It takes around 500 years for all of them to decompose. Even as it decomposes, the chemical content of the plastic stays intact, and the full plastic persists in the environment for centuries. Many of these plastics end up in the oceans, where birds and fish ingest them.
Tips for using a toothbrush when traveling
Which toothbrush is suitable?
Travel brushes are mainly used once, so you should choose an eco-friendly brush instead of a plastic brush. Currently, there are many types of travel brushes on the market, such as wooden brushes, bamboo brushes, and bio-plastic brushes.
How many toothbrushes do you need to bring?
The travel toothbrush is not as durable as a plastics one. But you can still use them many times on long trips.
How to take care of the toothbrush?
Bamboo and wooden travel brushes are often very susceptible to mold in humid environments. After use, you need to dry them before you pack them into your backpack.
What do I need to do after brush?
Bamboo, wood travel brushes still have a small amount of plastic from the bristles. After use, you should put them in the trash for the best disposal
Bamboo and wood are both biodegradable materials. Bamboo is the grass family, can grow quickly. It can be harvested after 3-5 years, so bamboo material is more sustainable than wood. Like the traditional Vietnamese chopsticks, bamboo and wood are always used in tandem. Each type of material has its own advantages and disadvantages. The overall assessment will depend on the object and purpose of use
In the north of our country, the humid weather is always a difficult challenge for bamboo and wooden materials. This is the reason we use pine and coconut wood for our toothbrushes. These are two types of wood that are resistant to mold, suitable for areas with high humidity
