In 2018, world plastic production totalled around 359 million metric tonnes. Our consumption of plastic presents hazardous dangers to not only human health but to marine life. Often mistaken for food, animals are also known to become entangled in debris resulting in fatal casualties. Divers, swimmers and beach goers are also directly harmed by encounters with marine debris or its toxins
Planet Moso was born to raise awareness and to help reduce and replace the use of plastic with self-sustainable materials. We aim to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our very own seabed, coastlines and landfills.
Our first step onto this adventure is our Moso bamboo toothbrush which is 99% biodegradable. Making our toothbrush one of the most eco-friendly toothbrushes in the world.
Planet Moso Mission:
Reduce the amount of plastic pollution in the ocean and landfills through ocean cleaning projects
Revitalising ecosystems and empowering local communities through reforestation projects
Help children and adults in deprived areas on the importance of oral hygiene
The whole planet needs looking after, it belongs to you and it belongs to us. It is our duty and our honour to be advocates for environmental change.
Planet Moso is the first step towards a wider charter, by replacing plastic with bamboo we make one small change today for a better tomorrow. Together we can Help The World Smile!
Why Moso Bamboo?
Moso bamboo is one of the most self-sustainable resource in the world. It can grow up to one meter a day, making this resource Eco-friendly and a great alternative to plastic. Moso bamboo also takes around 6 months to biodegrade, whereas a single plastic toothbrush takes a thousand years
CO2 Neutral: Moso outperforms all other bamboos, as well as hardwood varieties, in carbon dioxide absorption and oxygen production.
Endless Resource: Annual harvest of mature stems does not harm the mother plant.
Rapid Regeneration: Moso is the most rapidly growing plant on the planet. It can grow at the amazing speed of about 1 meter daily.
