Have you heard of the North Pacific Gyre?
It's a sea of plastic and waste the size of Texas! Pretty awful right?
Well the good folk behind Go Bamboo were so shocked and disgusted by this find that they
began to live their lives with as little plastic as possible.
They began to research the alternatives to plastic toothbrushes and found there was nothing available in New Zealand. This prompted further research and so Go Bamboo was created.
Not only did they discover a green toothbrush but they also discovered the environmental benefits of bamboo as a raw material. Why couldn’t bamboo be used in place of plastic in more disposable items?
Go Bamboo's mission is to offer biodegradable, sustainable alternatives to everyday, disposable,
plastic items and to limit the amount of plastic ending up in our oceans, on our beaches or in landfill.
