NZ House & Garden - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Bam­boo has hit the hip pa­rade with floor­ing, fab­rics and fit­tings (in­clud­ing kitchen cabi­netry, as in the above house by box.co.nz) made of this ro­bust ma­te­rial. House­hold items (think pegs and cot­ton buds) are also formed from this sus­tain­able stuff – in­clud­ing bam­boo tooth­brushes. Den­tists say we should change our tooth­brushes reg­u­larly but that’s a lot of plas­tic head­ing for land­fill. Toothcrush.co.nz is a sub­scrip­tion ser­vice that will de­liver a bam­boo-han­dled tooth­brush monthly.
