In a world full of plastic chaos we are all gradually beginning to think more about the items we use and the impact it has on global warming, wildlife & life in general. With this in mind Horbury Dental Care have pledged to reduce the amount of plastic used in practice. It is going to be a challenge, we know! But we are determined to make every little change make a difference.
To begin our journey into a world of less plastic we thought about our trusty old tooth brush. We all recognise that to brush your teeth effectively we need a toothbrush to do the job and as dental professionals we would recommend you replace your brush every 3-4 months. That’s a lot of brushes in a life time! Let’s do the maths:
Our first top tip is to reuse &upcycle your toothbrush. Here we have some great ideas on how you can upcycle your used toothbrush.
Alternatively you can buy bamboo toothbrushes, which are bio degradable and Eco friendly, available widely on the internet. You can find them at: https://thehumble.co/
Don’t bin it! Help us achieve our goal and think when you brush.
Reuse – Recycle – Upcycle
