Say no to plastic with this dentist designed toothbrush - with a biodegradable bamboo handle, soft tapered nylon bristles and a smaller head that’s suitable for all ages and improved access to hard to get places. You’ll love the smooth feel of the double polished handle, and the specially heat-treated mould-resistant bamboo. Just rinse and air dry between uses. A portion of every sale funds beach cleans around Australia.
As an 11 year old, Ned launched The Turtle Tribe with a mission to get plastic toothbrushes banned. Why? Because as Ned’s video highlights – there’s no reason to make them out of plastic as those plastic handles will be around for hundreds if not thousands of years.
Governments are already banning single use plastics (great!), but plastic toothbrushes, which have a short life before being thrown away, are no different. They should be banned. The ocean can’t afford any more plastic waste, so if something we have to throw away doesn’t HAVE to be made out of plastic, it shouldn’t be.
Ned grew up camping on the ocean beach of Moreton Island National Park every year with his family, and saw first-hand how isolated beaches have plastic debris washed up every day, including plastic toothbrushes. Together with his family he’d spend a couple of days every holiday just collecting plastic rubbish from the beach. It’s why he founded The Turtle Tribe in September 2018, offering bamboo toothbrushes as an alternative, and started on his mission to get plastic toothbrushes banned. When his friends at Ocean Crusaders suggested he partner with them doing a beach clean on Moreton Island with 50 volunteers in early 2019, he jumped at the chance!
