So, I tried the Preserve toothbrush made of recycled yogurt cups…
And I must admit it made me feel good knowing yogurt cups were reused. It functioned like any other normal toothbrush. I like mine super soft, so it wasn’t soft enough for me. But they don’t offer those kinds of choices.
I stuffed it back in the same container I bought it in, placed one small piece of tape to close it, and sent it through the mail.
No, not compostable, but 100% zero waste–for me. Do they reuse them yet, again?
Impressed at the concept, I’d probably use it again. But I’m still trying to find the compostable ones. So far, I haven’t seen them offered in any health/natural store I’ve visited. I suppose if I want to seriously be like my hero Bea Johnson, I’ll have to have it shipped from Canada.
Has anyone else found the compostable toothbrushes? Tried them out? Did they compost? Any idea where to find them in the States? (besides on-line). I’m trying to weasel out of the packaging of a shipped product.
