Recycled toothbrush in Mail Back Pack

  I wanted to share information about this great product, Preserve Toothbrushes,that a friend showed me.  It’s a toothbrush made from recycled yogurt cups.  That in itself is great but the wonderful part is that it comes in a mail back pack.   Three months later when you are done with the toothbrush, you place it in the packaging and mail it back and it’s turned into plastic lumber!  What a great concept and it’s made in the USA!

The company also makes other personal care, tableware and kitchen products from recycled plastics.  Here’s some more information from their website:

Toothbrush in Mail Back Pack
We consulted closely with dental professionals to create a toothbrush that gets your teeth cleaner but minimizes your impact on the environment. The design includes a curved handle for those hard-to-reach places and a three-level bristle arrangement to massage your gums. And while the bristles are brand new, the handle is made from recycled yogurt cups.

Enjoy the same best selling Preserve Toothbrush whether you choose the Travel Case or Mail Back Pack. The Mail Back Pack is a revolutionary approach to packaging. The lightweight package doubles as a return envelope. Just pop your used Preserve toothbrush inside and send it back to us for recycling (our dentist friends recommend replacing your brush every three months!). You can also recycle it via our Gimme 5 program.
