In general, I wouldn't say that Chris and I are die-hard environmentalists, but we do like to at least be semi-concious about the things we buy, what they're made of and packaged in, and how we can be less wasteful. We do what we can here and there and that includes making small changes when they're within a price-point that seems reasonable.
So, anyway, I recently found these toothbrushes on a blog somewhere in the world wide internets (can't remember where) and they looked cool, so I bought some at Trader Joe's. Amazon has them for $17.93 for six (about $3 a piece--comparable to other toothbrushes, I think) and Trader Joe's also sells them for about $2.50 apiece.
The handles are made out of 100% recycled materials, mostly recycled yogurt cups. And they're totally recyclable when you're done too--you just send them back in a little pre-paid envelope and the company recycles them. The company also makes razors, which I'll have to look into when I'm done with my Costco-sized quantity of razor blades.
Anyway, if that isn't all tree-huggery enough for you, we've also been using this:
Tom's of Maine Cinnamon-Clove toothpaste. It tastes pretty good, although I actually think I like their Fennel flavor just a bit better. It's very fennel-y. It's a nice change from regular old mint toothpaste.
Okay, off the high horse for now.
