That little toothbrush might not look like much on your bathroom counter, but it adds up to tons of waste. According to National Geographic, more than a billion plastic toothbrushes end up in landfills each year—plus, all that plastic packaging. That’s a lot of unnecessary garbage that will never decompose.

The good news is, there are tons of great alternatives that swap out plastic with biodegradable materials. Bamboo toothbrushes are the wave of the future. Not only is bamboo sustainable, but it’s also naturally antimicrobial. In other words: It's the perfect material for a toothbrush. Our favorites come from a brand called MamaP. The brand has an incredible set of colorful toothbrushes — and they're just $6 a pop.

MamaP’s bamboo toothbrushes are pretty and practical. The non-toxic painted tip extends the life of the bamboo (and makes them easier to tell apart if you're sharing a set with someone else) plus a rounded smooth head makes getting those back teeth easier.

The best part? Each color toothbrush benefits a different cause, from mental health (the green toothbrush) to bee conservation (sunny yellow). The rainbow, of course, goes toward equality.

"Very happy with the purchase of these toothbrushes," shared one shopper. "The causes this company provides support to, are very close to my heart."

Another shared: "I love the variety of colors that come in this 6-pack! The wood handles take some getting used to after a lifetime of plastic. The bristles are pretty soft (which I look for). Great quality!"
