Recycle Your Toothbrush

white_toothbrush.jpg We've featured the Preserve Jr. Recycled Toothbrush on Really Natural before, specifically the parent company Recycline's efforts to support the National Wildlife Federation. Recently, while reading Z Recommends, I discovered that not only are Preserve toothbrushes made from recycled Stoneyfield yogurt containers, but you can return your old toothbrush to the company for further recycling.
The American Dental Association estimates that the average American replaces their toothbrush two times a year (RN note:  even though dentists recommend every three months). At these replacement rates, used toothbrushes account for approximately 50 million pounds of waste annually.
When you are ready to replace your Preserve toothbrush, simply print a postage-paid return label from the Recycline website, mail you old toothbrush in, and it will be ground up to make plastic lumber.
