In the UK alone, based on population, around 200 million toothbrushes are thrown away each year. Yes, it’s shocking right? These toothbrushes will end up landfill, and in some cases, in our Oceans & Seas. Bad for Mother Nature = bad for the worlds marine life.
I’ve been trying to do my bit to save our planet from plastic overload so I decided to try some products from PearlBar.

I love using my Oral-B Trizone electric toothbrush so I was a bit skeptical trying a natural toothbrush. First of all I love how light this toothbrush is. It does feel a little different at first but I got used to it. The bristles are soft but I don’t have to use too much pressure when brushing. It cleans just as well as a regular toothbrush so I’m happy with the results. My teeth feel clean and it does help remove stains.
What’s also great is the toothbrush is easy to clean, you can see clearly between the bristles unlike some regular toothbrushes. It lasts just as long as your regular toothbrush and after 3 months I can simply dispose of it in an eco-friendly way!
They are also available in soft
PearlBar planet loving toothbrush – Childrens – Medium £7.49
All of the benefits of PearlBar – for your mini me’s – what better way to teach them about sustainability?!
I wasn’t sure if the kids would like this toothbrush as they are used to their colourful kid’s character ones. Surprisingly, Annaliese loves her new toothbrush and enjoys using it. Again it is very light and she can easily hold it herself and brush with ease. They clean her teeth very well.
They are also available in soft.

WINNER OF 2017’S BEST NATURAL BEAUTY PRODUCT AT THE NATURAL AND ORGANIC PRODUCTS EUROPE + THE BEAUTY SHORTLIST’S ‘EDITOR’S CHOICE’ 2017
Traditional dental floss is made from nylon coated with wax – the super strong thread doesn’t degrade, so it can’t be composted or recycled. That means countless strips of plastic are being discarded every day – compounded by plastic floss pick handles – which contributes to landfill and negatively impacts the environment.
PearlBar’s floss picks are small yet mighty, getting into those hard to reach places in your mouth, helping whiten teeth. By massaging the gums gently they will help protect against gingivitis & bad breath, pulling out the toxins and odour as they go. Helps level out your PH in your mouth.
Fully biodegradable Convenient zip locked bag of 30, perfect for on the go travel and space saving.
I always make sure I floss regularly as brushing alone can’t get to all the hard-to-reach places where plaque builds up. Flossing helps to remove plaque and bacteria that builds up in the nooks and crannies between your teeth and gum line.
If left to fester, plaque will turn into tartar which eventually causes the damage that leads to tooth decay and gum disease.
I don’t like to use the traditional floss picks as they are nylon, coated with wax and sometimes flouride.
These PearlBar floss picks are a great alternative. I personally find they do a better job than the regular ones. They are easy to handle and have just the right amount of tension. They are easy to glide between my teeth without having to pull or tug. Although they are slightly more expensive than the traditional ones, they are so worth it as they are better for your health and the environment.
I hope you found this review helpful.
