Day 21: Used Old Toothbrush to Clean Dishes


Instead of throwing out my old toothbrush, I used it to scrub some dishes with hard to reach places.

Eco Salon has some other ideas on how to reuse an old toothbrush:

  • Dusting your keyboard
  • Scrubbing out carpet stains
  • If you dye your hair at home, touch up your roots.
  • According to Earth911 recycling facts, recycling one ton of plastic saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space.

    Think about it if you change your toothbrush three times a year like your dentist recommends, how much waste that is.

    What was your simple green act for the day?
