Product Recommendation: Preserve Toothbrush

Hopefully on your list of new year's resolutions is a line about being more eco-friendly and green. You're in luck because my latest obsession is recycled plastic. Read that recycled, not recyclable. Recycled is better than recyclable because it's using material that has already been produced and would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

The next time you need to grab a toothbrush, consider Preserve. The toothbrush is made from Stonyfield Farm yogurt cups and the packaging is printed on recycled paper with soy-based inks. And the eco-friendliness doesn't stop there. Once you're done with your toothbrush, you can mail it in using a postage-paid label to be re-processed into plastic lumber for picnic tables, boardwalks and decks.

Don't worry, Preserve toothbrushes aren't one of those hippy products where you feel like you're sacrificing something. The curved handle and soft bristles are awesome! Preserve is also affordable. You can find them at Target or your local drugstore for just a couple bucks!

Stay cute. Stay fresh and remember to replace your toothbrush every three months.

I needed a new travel case for my toothbrush before I went to NY & ended up buying this since it was eco-friendly & its packaging doubles as its travel case! I must admit, the curvature of the brush was a lil awk at first, but I still love it.

I have this toothbrush in purple. It's got soft bristles! I picked mine up at Whole Foods. Great promo for going green!
