Plastic Toothbrush Pollution
DID YOU KNOW THAT WE USE 5 BILLION PLASTIC TOOTHBRUSHES EVERY YEAR?!
AND DID YOU KNOW THAT ABOUT 2 BILLION OF THOSE BRUSHES END UP ON LANDFILLS AND IN OCEANS. WELL, NEITHER DID WE…
A sunset stroll on one of the secluded islands of the island of la Gonave, triggered our dream,
as it quickly turned into a trash hunt. We love the oceans, mountains, and all of mother
nature’s playgrounds. That’s why we were shocked by the amount of plastic rubbish we
were able to pick up in such short time.
So, our quest for alternatives started. Soon we learned about bamboo, with its great characteristics,
functionality, and biodegradable composition. Not much later, Nextouter was founded.
We want to build a society of optimistic people. People who share similar values and interests, and inspire
each other to find alternatives for products and materials that damage this beautiful planet!

Once we went for a stroll on the Island and had a closer look we found so much plastic trash, this picture illustrates the objects we found; plastic bags, flip-flops, bottles, toothbrushes and much more..
