Plus Ultra : Bamboo Toothbrush Is Better.

By October 26, 2015Uncategorized

Each year more than 167 million plastic toothbrushes are purchased in the U.S. and over 4.2 billion worldwide. Most of these toothbrushes eventually end up in landfills or beaches – and make up a portion of the 45,000 tons of plastic that are dumped into oceans each year. It’s time to start changing consumption habits that negatively effect our planet and our health. Plus Ultra : Bamboo Toothbrush Is Better.

PLUS ULTRA’s bamboo toothbrush provides an eco-friendly alternative to plastic toothbrushes and leaves minimal waste.

PLUS  ULTRA is Latin for “further beyond”. It was the motto used by 16th century Spanish explorers to encourage the exploration of new worlds. Today, it is the mantra we’ve adopted to inspire innovation and forward-thinking. By looking beyond the conventional and traditional, we can explore new solutions to better serve our world. – Plus
I was shopping my neighborhood Whole Foods one fine day, and happened to start chatting with a young lady who informed me about the plastics being piled up on our planet and how she is offering bamboo toothbrush alternatives to do her small part in making change. First off, I am always about supporting local businesses, and female owned businesses as well, so this was a no brainer. I bought a couple and my son who is studying away at college was super happy to grab them and give them a trial run. Being a biology major, he was pretty stoked to do his part too, so it definitely was an overall win for everyone…feel good, do good, live good.
You can shop their site if you don’t have a local Whole Foods by clicking here. I think it makes for a fantastic planet-conscious wellness gift for the upcoming holidays, and a good way to educate your kids about the importance of taking care of our beautiful earth AND caring for your teeth all at the same time. 2 Cheers for awareness and 5 cheers for action!
