David Attenborough: We Are at a “Crisis Moment” for the Planet

In a recent interview with the BBC, David Attenborough has said that we're currently at a "crisis moment".

According to the renowned naturalist and broadcaster, "we have been putting things off for year after year".

"As I speak, south east Australia is on fire. Why? Because the temperatures of the Earth are increasing," he said.

Sir David's comments came in a BBC News interview to launch a year of special coverage on the subject of climate change.

He told the BBC it was "palpable nonsense" for some politicians and commentators to suggest that the Australian fires were nothing to do with the world becoming warmer.

"We know perfectly well," he said, that human activity is behind the heating of the planet.

Since the beginning of 2020, it's also been confirmed that two animals have become extinct. The Blue Macaw, as seen in the animated film Rio has been confirmed as extinct in the wild, whilst the Chinese Paddlefish is thought to be completely extinct by National Geographic.

The impact that we're having on the planet is astonishing. And here at Brush Fresh, we believe that all of us can make changes, however small, that have a positive impact not only for us, but for future generations.

Making small changes to our life style, such as moving away from single use plastics, will have a positive change on the environment we need to protect. Moving from a single use toothbrush to a bamboo toothbrush, such as the Brush Fresh Bamboo Toothbrush for example.

We really need to start thinking about our own impact on the planet... help us help the planet, one toothbrush at a time!
