Nothing Wasted: Recycling Plastic Number 5
Preserve, a company manufacturing high performance, eco-friendly products for your home, has created the first high-quality product from recycled plastics- the Preserve Toothbrush. Made from recycled yogurt cups, the toothbrush gets your teeth cleaner while minimizing your impact on the environment.
The toothbrush is designed with a curved handle to clean those hard-to-reach places, while a three-level bristle arrangement gently massages your gums. The handle of the toothbrush is made from 100% recycled #5 plastic, while the bristles are made from new nylon. The toothbrush is BPA free and is also completely recyclable after use.
When you are finished with the toothbrush, you can send it back to Preserve, who will give the toothbrush to a partner company. This company will grind it up and turn it into plastic lumber to be used in new picnic tables, park benches, and boardwalks.
As a company, Preserve strives to combine socially and environmentally responsible business practices with groundbreaking designs in order to create products that people feel good about having in their homes. Founded in 1996, Preserve’s President Eric Hudson was committed to the need to use the earth’s resources more efficiently and responsibly. Hudson saw the developing plastic recycling marked as a great opportunity to reuse the earth’s resources. Hudson started Preserve to reuse Earth’s resources and turn them back into products that people wanted. Since creating the Preserve Toothbrush, the company has grown and now offers a range of everyday products from razors, colanders, and cutting boards, to tableware and more.
By choosing Preserve Plastic, consumers are investing in a company dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and using less water, energy, oil, natural gas, and coal in the production of plastic products.Around the House, Products, To Recycle and tagged 5, dishware, plastic, preserve, razors, recycle, recycling, resources, tootbrush, yogurt cups.
