You could throw away more than 240 toothbrushes in your lifetime so cut down on waste by using an eco-friendly Monte Bianco toothbrush with a replaceable head.
How often should I change my toothbrush?
The British Dental Health Foundation recommend that you change your toothbrush every two or 3 months. If the bristles become splayed they won't clean your teeth properly so you may need to replace it sooner.
Why is a Monte Bianco toothbrush eco-friendly?
Monte Bianco have had a brilliant, yet simple, idea of creating a toothbrush with a detachable head. So when it's time to get a new brush, you just have to throw away the head and not the whole brush which reduces plastic waste. It's easy to replace the head as they just click into place. They fit on very securely so I've never had one come off when I didn't want it to.
The Monte Bianco range
Monte Bianco toothbrushes and replaceable heads come in a choice of colours and bristle textures including medium, sensitive and a Junior Soft one ideal for children.
I bought an extra brush so I could use the spare handle with the old heads as I find old toothbrushes useful for cleaning, such as round taps and grouting. That way I get more use out of the heads before I throw them away.

If anyone from Monte Bianco reads this, is it possible that you could manufacture the toothbrushes using totally or partially recycled materials? That would be even better.
I've spotted Monte Bianco toothbrushes and replaceable heads for sale in health shops and green shops, plus you can buy online from:
