I subscribe to feeds from RealSimple.com and I love them. One of the feeds ‘Clever Items to Simplify Your Life’ brims with information about new and old products that really are quite cool. One of the items that I caught my eyes in this week’s list is ‘Snap Toothbrush System’. I have always felt that toothbrushes can be reduced/recycled better. I am not a big environmentalist nor a fanatic when it comes to reduce-recyle but I try and do my part. Every time, we go to dentist’s or orthodontist’s office, I always feel a twinge of guilt when the dentist tears out a brand new toothbrush just to lightly brush over my kids’ teeth or to demonstrate some thing to them. Of course, I do try and get those brand new tooth brushes home but some times they get lost. Why don’t they use some thing simpler in the doctor’s offices? Some thing that is not a full sized tooth brush?
So, I was quite excited about the new toothbrush system. You just need to change the brush head and you have a new toothbrush…imagine, how much plastic you can save! I have not tried it yet…I still have tens of toothbrushes from dentist’s offices (we visit every month since my kids have braces and they get new tooth brushes every single time) to use. But this product is worth a try. You get 12 toothbrushes for $18 and it sounds pretty reasonable. Go green!
