Toothbrush Disposal and Upcycling

Have you started using bamboo toothbrushes in order to reduce your use of plastic? If so, you’re probably wondering what to do with it when you’re done. Wowe Lifestyle has the answer to that question.

First you need to use pliers to pull out the bristles.  You can save the bristles and check with your local recycling facility if they are able to process the small bristles.  If they cannot process the bristles then they will need to go in the trash. There are many things you can do with the bamboo handle once the bristles are removed.

 Garden markers
 Stirring stick for drinks
 Soap dish
 Picture frames
 Mixing paints or glues
 Fire starters
 Popsicle sticks
 Scrubbing hard to reach places (do not remove bristles)
 Many other arts and craft ideas
 As a last resort you can throw them in the trash.  Since the handle is bamboo it will decompose in the landfill.
