How to Brush Teeth & Save the Environment – Part 1

Some posts are worth repeating.

About two years ago, I found a nifty toothbrush called Preserve Toothbrush. Made from 100% recycled plastic, Preserve Toothbrush comes with a reusable travel case that you can use to ship the toothbrush back to the company when you replace it with a new one. The company will then re-process it into plastic lumber for picnic tables, boardwalks, and decks. Isn’t that neat? It costs around $3, which is an added bonus for budget-conscious environmentalists like me. Since the company pays for shipping, it costs nothing for you to recycle. I love it!

Brush your teeth and save the environment! Be sure to save multiple brushes before you send them back to the company. Anyone want to start saving brushes with me?

  1. Very interesting post. I too beileve that by using products made from recycled plastic we can significantly reduce our carbon footprint. Stopping waste plastic going to landfill. Personally I specialise in the manufacture of garden and outdoor products made from recycled plastic. As recycled plastic has many key features to allow it to be a long and sustainable purchase for outdoor use.

    For little more information on recycled plastic lumber see this page. http://www.kedel.co.uk/recycled-plastic-lumber-wood-composite-profiles-timber-main/recycled-plastic-lumber-synthetic-wood-composite-timber-profiles.html

    Or for examples of products that can be made from recycled plastic. See here. http://www.kedel.co.uk/
