...but some very-much-needed mechanisms







okay,
but why?

because

According to National Geographic:


Most of us will replace around three-hundred toothbrushes during our lifetim


Toothbrushes are not recyclable since small parts get stuck in the machinery.




If you laid out the toothbrushes thrown away in the U.S. in a year, they would wrap around the Earth four times!
