Yes, seriously. The local community food co-operative Alfalfa House is collecting old toothbrushes, dental floss containers & toothpaste tubes to recycle them into new products.
What a great initiative, especially as we toss out over 30-million toothbrushes in Australia, amounting to approximately 1000-tonnes of landfill every year. Toothbrushes don’t break down & will likely still be there in the landfill long after our grandchildren have reached old age. It’s time to do our planet a favour by dropping our unwanted items into Alfalfa House, instead of putting them in the bin.
Alfalfa House is open 7 days a week.
Address: 113 Enmore Road Enmore, on the corner of Phillip Street
Opening hours –
Monday – Wednesday 11am-7pm
