Like a conventional toothbrush, a charcoal toothbrush has a similar shape and design along with bristles on the brush head. However, the difference is that those bristles are infused with charcoal rather than being standard synthetic bristles that simply sweep and capture bacteria and debris.
Some charcoal toothbrushes have a plastic/rubber handle with charcoal-infused bristles, whilst others have a wooden, normally bamboo, handle.
Bamboo is a more natural option as this biodegrades whereas plastic does not.
While switching to a natural toothbrush may seem like a small change, the stats above show that we could all make a big difference if we each committed to doing things a better way.
