Why sustainable living matters and how to get it started

Sustainability is about looking in the long-term, at how our actions today will affect our children’s lives and our children’s children’s lives. 

Living a sustainable life is good for you and the planet. Studies show that if we don’t start living sustainably now, we will run out of natural resources like fossil fuels and lumber, thousands if not millions of animal species will become extinct. Worst, we will damage the atmosphere beyond repair.

Good thing, there are so many ways to live sustainably. Today, you can start with just one product.

Getting this sustainable product gives you three chances a day to improve the health of the planet. I’m talking about the type of toothbrush you’re using.

Did you know that a plastic toothbrush can last 400 years before it decomposes in landfills? Now, try to imagine the number of toothbrushes billions of people are throwing away every three to five months. 

But if you change to bamboo toothbrushes today, then you are reducing your environmental footprint.

Kick-off your zero-waste lifestyle with Bumi Philippines!

Bumi offers bamboo toothbrushes with soft bristles and biodegradable handles to reduce plastic waste. Their self-standing bamboo toothbrushes in happy colors are must-haves for your sustainable journey. And unlike plastic toothbrushes, bamboo is naturally antibacterial and may even last longer!

Grab these Wellnessible-approved toothbrushes today.  And remember, sustainability is something that every single person can do. No matter what your lifestyle, clothing choices, job, economic status, or hobbies may be. Being sustainable is just about making choices that support the greater good.

Now, if you want to level up your sustainable game plan beyond sustainable toothbrushes, just remember before you make a purchase we encourage you to ask the following questions:

  1. Who made or grew this product? Was it made by a purpose-driven company? Or from a group that advocates for sustainability?
  1. How was it made or grown? Educate yourself on materials. We all have to be mindful of where the materials came from.
  1. Does this product have a positive or negative social impact? Is this helping you live a greener lifestyle?

Living sustainably 24/7 may be challenging but it’s better to be sustainable and zero-waste on most days than not trying at all.
