Day 45: Replaced Head of Toothbrush
This morning I replaced just the head of my toothbrush. I have a Source Toothbrush, so I just need to replace the head and not the entire brush.
Since just the head is replaced, 80% of the energy wasted in creating toothbrushes is conserved. This eliminates the need to recycle the handles. My handle is made of wood fiber. They also have ones made of recycled flax and dollar bills.
Not only does this reduce plastic waste generated by throwing away entire toothbrushes, but the packaging is made of 50% soda bottles.
