Make The Switch

Many of the products we use daily are eco-unfriendly. Your toothbrush is a typical example. It’s something we often overlook, but it’s a significant contributor to ocean plastic. Over 99% of the toothbrushes the world uses are plastic - a mix of unrecyclable and toxic materials that combine elements of rubber, crude oil and petroleum. It’s estimated that the UK alone throws away two hundred and sixty-four million toothbrushes a year. Many of which end up in either landfill or the ocean and never break down.

Plastic cotton buds are another example. Plastic cotton bud stems are consistently observed to constitute approximately 5-10% of marine debris surveyed in European seas. People flush them down toilets, and their buoyancy and narrow diameter mean sewage treatment works cannot prevent all of them reaching the sea.

The good news is, for every eco-unfriendly product, there is an eco-friendly and purse-friendly alternative.

Sustainable solutions from The Willow Trader

At the Willow Trader, we offer a range of everyday eco-friendly products, that help you to live more sustainably. All of our products are 100% natural, eco-friendly and good for our health and planet. All of our products are made using environmentally friendly manufacturing processes that keep waste to a minimum, and our packaging is plastic free and recyclable.

One of our most popular products is our charcoal bamboo toothbrushes. They are an eco-friendly alternative to plastic toothbrushes. Like a conventional toothbrush, a charcoal bamboo toothbrush has a similar shape and design with bristles on the brush head. However, the difference is the body of the toothbrush is made from natural, biodegradable bamboo, and the bristles are infused with charcoal rather than being standard nylon/synthetic bristles. Along with our sustainable toothbrushes, we also offer 100% natural bamboo charcoal toothpaste. Our vegan-friendly bamboo cotton buds have also proved particularly popular with customers. They are plastic and BPA-free with antibacterial bamboo stems and organic natural cotton tips.
