You can read I’ve got a bamboo toothbrush in Why are you a vegan? and other wacky verse for kids or here where you’ll also find links to how to get your own bamboo toothbrush 🙂
I’ve got a bamboo toothbrush,
It’s the best one you can own.
It’s not as good as mine though,
Mine is red and yours is brown
Yours is red because it’s plastic,
You know plastic isn’t good.
It is good coz it’s shiny.
Yours is dull, it’s made of wood.
Toothbrushes by the millions
Are thrown away each year,
And because they don’t rot naturally,
Lifetimes later they’re still here.
Well at least my plastic toothbrush
Won’t make forests get the chop.
Your wood one’s killing all the trees,
You shouldn’t kill trees, so stop!
No, bamboo is not like other trees,
Because it grows so fast.
They’re always planting new ones
So their supply will always last.
And when my toothbrush is old and useless,
When I have to throw it out,
The natural fibre it’s made from
Will safely, quickly rot.
Would you like a bamboo toothbrush?
Or maybe they sell them at your local health food store? 🙂
