Brusha, brusha, brusha! When it comes to children’s toothbrushes, drugstore shelves seem stocked with characters from comic books, tv and Disney movies. Thankfully, Recycline has teamed up with the National Wildlife Federation to produce a toothbrush that promotes good oral care, teaches about endangered species and raises recycling awareness. The Preserve Jr.'s ergonomic handle is designed for small grips and the soft bristles will be gentle on young gums. The packaging of each brush includes fun animal facts about different endangered species. Best of all the toothbrush is made from recycled materials (primarily Stonyfield Farm yogurt containers) and is fully recyclable – a postage-paid label is included with every purchase.
The brushes cost $11 for four and can be found in specialty grocery stores such as Whole Foods, Wild Oats, Trader Joes and select Target stores. If you can’t find them locally, you can order directly from Recycline and even set up a subscription to receive them in the mail.
p.s. Recycline makes attractive recyclable brushes for grownups, too.
