Eco-Friendly Toothbrushes

Radius Original Toothbrush. The Radius original toothbrush has been around for 22 years. This non-traditional design (made for righties and lefties) not only helps you brush better, but the handle is made from renewable resource plastic. Radius also makes a toothbrush line for children.

Radius Source Toothbrush. The Source toothbrush comes with a replaceable head. After all, when you get a new toothbrush, all you really want to do is change out the bristles. The reusable handle is made from a wood fiber blended with corn plastic – both renewable resource materials.

The manufacturing of Radius toothbrushes is also eco-friendly. They are made in a restored mill in Pennsylvania, using well designed, efficient processes that create less waste and save on water and energy use (although much of the production is down at the moment, after the mill suffered severe storm damage in July).

3. Preserve

The Preserve Toothbrush was developed with dental professionals over a two-year period and represents the latest in toothbrush design and function. It is constructed with environmentally friendly materials to let you replace without the waste. The Preserve is available at natural food supermarkets such as Whole Foods Market, Wild Oats, and Trader Joe’s.

The Preserve’s handle is made of polypropylene. This plastic material was chosen for its strength and flexibility. It is an efficiently recycled material–its strength does not break down in the recycling process. Polypropylene’s recycling efficiency means it is commonly reprocessed and cleaned, and we have been able to hire the best in the business to recycle our plastics.

Presently our main source is from recycled Stonyfield Farm® yogurt cups.

Fuchs Ekotek Toothbrush The Ekotek comes with 3 recyclable heads on its own and prevents excess waste from going into landfills like the others.

Eco-Tip: To clean your tooth-brush, soak it in vinegar every two weeks to kill bacteria and germs.

  1. The first toothbrush to resemble the modern toothbrush is believed to have been invented in China in the late 1400s, which used the stiff hairs from a hog’s neck, attached to a bamboo stick. Something so old and people still doen’t brush their teeth properly. 🙁
