Preserve Mail Back Pack Toothbrush

Bronze
2011

Preserve, who has been making toothbrushes from recycled #5 plastic food containers since 1997, wanted to further decrease its environmental impact. The Preserve Mail-Back Pack Toothbrush is the same toothbrush Preserve has always made with a mail-back pouch. After users are done with the toothbrush, they mail it back to Preserve, who transforms them into plastic lumber.
