Day 8: Switch to a bamboo toothbrush

1 billion plastic toothbrushes end up in the sea, buried or burned every year. Here’s what you can do to stop it…

Incinerating plastic
Millions of tons of plastic waste are incinerated every year, releasing millions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. That’s why it’s important to never throw away plastic.
Plastic toothbrushes
In the US alone, 1 billion toothbrushes are thrown into landfills each year. They will either take 1000 years to degrade, eventually become tiny micro-plastics that end up in our oceans, bodies and food or they’ll be incinerated.
Instead of plastic, buy a multipack of biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes with zero plastic packaging and help end ocean plastic. See the links below.

Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had F. Scott Fitzgerald


Imagine if 1 million people completed 100 Days to Save the World.

We would change the world.

It's possible.

Imagine how the world could be.

It's up to us to change it. Not someone else.
