  1. This is a great post, and I'll definitely make the switch. I think it would be helpful if you provided some recommendations on bamboo toothbrush brands.
    Also, I continued to think about who does the major purchasing of toothbrushes. I seem to always get toothbrushes from two sources (when I don't buy my own): dentists and hotel chains.
    If you could convince dentists to buy compostable toothbrushes for their patients (perhaps through the ADA) and hotel chains, who probably place enormous bulk purchases of toothbrushes for their hotels, it would probably have an enormous impact.
