Spazzolini da denti e rifiuti di plastica

Toothbrushes and plastic waste

Brushing your teeth is the first thing you do in the morning. Most people use a plastic toothbrush, a toothpaste with a plastic tube, and maybe even other oral hygiene items packaged in plastic. Just by brushing your teeth, the amount of plastic waste produced is so much that today hundreds of thousands of pieces of plastic waste float in every square kilometer of the oceans.


If you follow the “rule” of changing your toothbrush every 3 months, one person alone consumes about 300 toothbrushes over the course of their life. And you know what? Toothbrushes are not recyclable because small parts get stuck in the machines.

That's why we chose a bioplastic made in Germany, which contains biopolymers, lignin, natural resins, natural waxes, natural oils, cellulose, organic additives, and natural reinforcing fibers. Thanks to this combination, the promis brush can be disposed of in household waste, as it burns with almost zero CO2 emissions, just like wood.

Become part of the new promis oral hygiene movement and help reduce plastic in the environment. Every toothbrush counts.
