Preserve toothbrush review and contest

In out house we try to practice the three R's as much as possible. We reduce, recycle and reuse because we think it's important as I imagine most people do. I sometimes wonder though about all the little things we throw away without even thinking about it. All those little things can add up and have a big impact. The good news is that we can all do little things that can add up to have a positive impact. Enter the Preserve toothbrush!
The thinking behind the new Preserve toothbrush is pretty clever. How it works is this:
1. You buy the toothbrush (It's available at Target for only $2.04 PLUS the Recycline website has money saving coupons you can print off)
2. You use the toothbrush until it's time to replace it. (Dentists recommend switching it every three months!)
3. You send your used toothbrush back to Recycline via the prepaid envelope that is provided to you. (Yes, it's free for you to send it back to them!)
4. Your old toothbrush is then re-processed into plastic lumber for picnic tables, boardwalks and decks.

Now that's just neat. Also neat is the fact that Recycline has a whole line of products including plates and tableware and I feel much better about Recycline goods than I do about other paper plates that I won't mention. (Except that I will.)

If you would like to try out the Preserve toothbrush for FREE just leave a comment on this post. On July 16th I will pick a commenter at random to receive TWO Preserve toothbrushes. You can feel good about keeping your teeth clean and helping to keep the planet clean. And what could be better than that?
