In the USA alone it is estimated that between 850 million, and over a billion toothbrushes, representing more than 50 million pounds of waste, are discarded and end up in landfills every single year. These toothbrushes are made from a combination of plastic (made from crude oil) and rubber for the handpiece, nylon for the bristles, and a mix of plastic and cardboard for the packaging. Currently, none of these items are biodegradable, therefore they remain in landfills indefinitely. Worse, they end up in our oceans and washed up on our beaches or consumed by marine life. If they are burnt, they release a combination of toxic and greenhouse gases.
Now consider that this is just in the United States.
