#7 How green is your hygiene regime? Specifically, what’s washing those pretty veg*n chompers? No, I don’t mean the homemade baking soda scrub (although we’ll be covering that soon!) – I mean the toothbrush itself.
Uh-oh, it’s probably plastic, right? Well lucky for conscientious consumers, there’s a few progressive products out there to take your pearly whites to a whole new shade of green!
I use Preserve, available online as well as nationwide at Trader Joe’s. Each brush comes with a small postmarked pouch, so that when it’s worn out you can mail it back to the company. They recycle old brushes into brand new tools. So cool!
But you want a mechanical model? Radius has you covered. Their Intelligent electric toothbrush has a replaceable head, and they’ll even help you dispose of the batteries.
And don’t forget, those old brushes make great additions to your DIY cleaning kit!
