Eco Brush / Toothbrush

Eco Brush
Eco Brush

In order to ensure their dental health, most people replace their toothbrushes every three to four months to avoid using unclean toothbrushes. It is reported that people across the world consume 4 billion toothbrushes per year. If the average weight of a toothbrush is 9 grams, it means that the world throws away 36,000 tons of plastic garbage every year, which harm the environment.

The Eco Brush is an eco-friendly toothbrush. By using it, people only need to replace a brush head, where bacteria breed and grow, without throwing away a reusable handle. It helps us to keep our teeth clean and healthy without producing unnecessary waste.
