I am really enjoying blogging..... as I love to share information!
It's amazing when you are in a room of 10 people and how much you can learn from each other is a short space of time.
Today I wanted to share a website with you that can tell you all the facts about Bamboo.
As I sell Bamboo Toothbrushes I often get asked by my customers "where are they made?"
I answer "China".
Some people are adverse to purchasing items made in China, it has a slight....... stigma.
Well.... bamboo does grow in Asia and it is harvested and made into products.
Bamboo is very sustainable, here are a few facts:
It is grown without pesticides or chemical fertilisers
It grows rapidly and can be harvested in 3-5 years
Is carbon neutral
It can be made into a fiber for clothing
It can be used in building and used as scaffolding
It can be made into furniture
It can be used as medicines
Check out this website https://econation.co.nz/bamboo/ to learn more about why we should use more bamboo products:
Our bamboo tooth brushes are made from Bamboo & Recyclable Nylon.
When you are ready to change to a new tooth brush, you can use it for cleaning, cleaning jewelry, cleaning your bike, etc then when it has been used to the point of no return, shave off the bristles and compost the handle!
That's one way of helping the environment.......
