|Innovative Construction Materials|
The Preserve's materials, all of which are completely recyclable, have been selected for both performance and their recycled origins.
The Preserve's handle is made of polypropylene. This plastic material was chosen for its strength and flexibility. It is an efficiently recycled material--its strength does not break down in the recycling process. Polypropylene's recycling efficiency means it is commonly reprocessed and cleaned, and we have been able to hire the best in the business to recycle our plastics. Please see our plastics recycling section for more on our recycling process.
Polypropylene is also available in many sources of post-consumer and pre-consumer recycled plastics, labeled #5. Presently our main source is from recycled Stonyfield Farm yogurt cups. Read more about our innovative recycling project with them. After reprocessing, our post-consumer plastics are tested to confirm their cleanliness - this test is called a "foreign elements reading" which shows that our cleansed and reprocessed plastics have the same infinitesimal readings of foreign elements as virgin plastics. Please see our plastics testing page for more about tests and their results.
The Preserve's materials are also completely recyclable. The handle and bristles are effectively recycled together--the polypropylene and nylon actually strengthen as they combine in the recycling process. Preserve's postage-paid envelope assures that your used brush will be turned into plastic lumber.
The Preserve's handle is made from the highest quality post-consumer and pre-consumer recycled plastics.
Join the cycle: Return the Preserve toothbrush to Recycline, we will grind it to make material for recycled plastic lumber. Our postage-paid return envelope assures recycling and makes it easy.
Efficient packaging eliminates unnecessary waste. All of our packaging is made from recyclable materials, and the reusable brush canister provides a sanitary holder to keep your brush clean and portable.
