A great invention that has rapidly risen to become the second largest cause of plastic pollution in the world today which threatens to choke land and sea life due to the slow rate of decomposition.
Plastic toothbrushes today are made out of rubberised plastic, which releases toxic fumes into the environment right at the manufacturing stage which is harmful for environment as well as humans.
Plastic toothbrushes are estimated to take about 400 years to decompose which means that every toothbrush ever manufactured is present on the planet in some form at the bottom of the ocean or in some landfill.
During the slow, long drawnout process of decomposition, plastic toothbrushes break into smaller pieces, infamously called as microplastics. These microplastic contaminate water and enter our foodstream through seafood or even sea salt.
Plastic toothbrushes cannot be incinerated as they release toxic fumes during burning which leads to chronic respiratory disorders.
In short, Plastic toothbrushes are an unnecessary luxury that the planet and we can live without.
