Eco vibe I’ve recently discovered a company called Eco Vibe, whose mission is to sell environmentally friendly products, made from sustainable materials to help reduce our carbon footprint as consumers. All their products are truly eco-friendly and ethically produced with the aim to help us be plastic free and I little more conscious about what we buy.
As a country we have been encouraged to recycle for quite a few years now but there is always more we can do. For over a year I have used solid shampoo, and switched back to bars of soap rather than bottles of hand wash/shower gels , obviously if I receive any items in plastic bottles as gifts (as often is the case at Christmas) then I used them as it would be wasteful not too, it’s not that I dislike the products I’m just trying to find small ways that I can help to reduce waste.
Also for the last 6 months I have been using washable makeup remover pads instead of single use wipes or cotton balls.
I contacted this company, expressing my desire to trial some new products and they kindly gifted me a couple of items which included a bamboo toothbrush which not only looks about as stylish as a toothbrush could be, but it’s made from sustainable bamboo. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and fast growing and self-regenerates from its roots once it’s cut, it also doesn’t require any pesticides or fertilisers to aid its growth. Being a plant-based product also means that the handle is fully compostable and biodegradable. It’s 100% vegan, and is packaged in recyclable packaging, the packaging also suggests other uses for the toothbrush once it’s run its course for dental hygiene.
The bristles are BPA-free nylon and you can choose soft, medium or firm. There is also a child’s toothbrush available.
They also sell various natural toothpastes too, I’m yet to try these but will look into it.
