Recycled Preserve Toothbrush

So the folks at Preserve Products are taking old yogurt cups and using them to make toothbrushes.  Makes sense to me.  The Preserve Toothbrush is priced right (less than $3 each), is good for the environment, is BPA free, and comes with a postage paid mailer to return the toothbrush for another round of recycling.Preserve Recycled Toothbrush

How much of a difference? Preserve plastic requires:

  • At least 54% less water than virgin polypropylene
  • At least 64% less greenhouse gases (in CO2 equivalents) than virgin polypropylene
  • At least 75% less oil than virgin polypropylene
  • At least 48% less coal than virgin polypropylene
  • At least 77% less natural gas than virgin polypropylene
  • At least 46% less electricity than virgin polypropylene
