Green Dentistry Week: Toothbrushes

Buy green toothbrushes Small changes made to our daily habits can add up. This week, with help from the Eco-Dentistry Association, we'll provide tips to help you green your dental hygiene routine.

Tip #4: Buy Recycled

Toothbrushes need to be replaced regularly, so the next time you're updating your bristles, consider these options: The Preserve toothbrush is made from recycled Stonyfield Farm yogurt cups. The Radius Source toothbrush has a detachable head and a handle made from recycled dollar bills, recycled flax, and recycled wood. Toothbrush Express is a subscription service that delivers new brushes along with a container to return brushes for recycling.
