Preserve Recycled Toothbrushes
Have you ever heard of the Preserve products? They recycle Stonyfield Farms yogurt cups and turn them into things like toothbrushes and razors. I just picked up a new toothbrush from them today. My favorite part? Snip off the top of the package, and when you're done, pop in the brush, tape it closed, and it's a self addressed, postage paid mailer back to the recycler. How cool is that? It's like a recycling treat for nerds*. I know I'm excited, and for $3 bucks, I'll take the cheap thrill, thank you very much.
(*they also do a toothbrush subscription. Nerdily awesome, but I couldn't hack the suggested 3 months between. Apparently my toothbrushes have a shorter life span due to paranoia.)
