Recycling the newspaper is easy enough to remember but what about your toothbrush? They may not take up much room in your house, but discarded toothbrushes take up plenty of space in landfills.
I have tried out toothbrushes made of recycled material that are also recyclable. To be honest, I never bothered recycling them. My waste hauler doesn't accept that type of plastic and I never took the extra step to mail it back for recycling. Maybe it's time to look into this option again and make the extra effort to recycle them.
There are toothbrushes with replaceable heads, which I have bought in the past for Kellan, but I find he brushes his teeth longer with a kid-friendly toothbrush with a light-up timer. However, Erik just bought an electric toothbrush and I wonder if that will help save on plastic in the long run since he will only replace the bristles.
I reuse toothbrushes as much as possible since they are excellent cleaning tools, but I can't help but wonder if there's more I can do. Do you have any tips?
