DISPOSAL – as advised by www.gobamboo.co.nz
When you’ve finished with your toothbrush you can put it to another use, cleaning your bike or other intricate object. Climbers you could use it to clean holds. If it falls out of your pouch and you loose it, no guilt, it will dissapear over time in the natural environment. I’m not saying just chuck it away but should you loose track of it, you can sleep easy that its unlikely to choke an albatross in 25 years time.
You could shave the bristles off into a piece of tissue and flush them down the loo or into the compost and use the handle to make another tool. Using a child’s toothbrush handle and the E string from a guitar, I made a bobbin threader for my son’s fly-tying kit. Let loose your imagination.
Stick it in the compost and it will go eventually or nail it vertically into the lawn, gone! Get creative, in fact for the most creative second use/disposal method (send photos plans and instructions) we will give you free toothbrushes for a year.
