Bamboo is biodegradable and one of the fastest-growing plants on earth. National Geographic recommends using a bamboo toothbrush to help to eliminate one of the most prevalent forms of plastic pollution.
Even though bamboo seems like a new environmentally friendly material, the earliest bristle toothbrushes were invented in China in the 15th century and featured bamboo handles.
