This is not available anymore. Can we find it somewhere else?



In case anyone else doesn't find it, it's the first link on this page:

I double checked the document and it specifically states to:

Plastic toothbrushes are a real disaster for the environment. Only in the US one billion of toothbrushes are thrown away every single year! We can avoid using plastic bags or bottles but nobody thinks about those toothbrushes. I've found a bamboo toothbrush as an alternative. It's really a good way to make our planet cleaner. And this toothbrush looks more stylish than the ordinary one.

Hi all, it's been a few years since this thread was active. I'm curious if anybody has more insights after using chewing sticks for a while. Any advice or "I wish I knew..." comments for someone exploring this topic now?

Hi there,
I like the licorice during the dry winter seasons. It's moistening and it's also antibacterial.
I've ordered some chew sticks from online. Not good tasted terrible. I've heard drying dogwood branches out for a year and then making chew sticks is good?
I used to trade sticks with a guy from Africa. I wish I could recall the name of the tree it was really mild.
Thanks for updating the pdf link. Def checking that out.
