Nearly every single toothbrush made since the 1930s, when the first plastic toothbrushes came out, is still out there in the world, living on as a piece of indestructible trash, according to an co-authored article with the National Geographic Society.
Swapping to a bamboo, wooden or recycled plastic toothbrush helps the environment by having one less toothbrush in a landfill or polluting the sea. Plus, they can all be recycled or composted once they are not usable as toothbrushes anymore.
