Have you ever wondered where your old dollar bills go once they are barely recognizable?  I found one answer in the new Source toothbrush by Radius.  They are using a blend of recycled US dollar bills, recycled flax and recycled wood to make the handles of this toothbrush. Combined, this creates a bio-plastic, which is 100% renewable or recyclable.  Pretty cool in my book.  I have never had anything but a plastic toothbrush that I through away every three months.

The other benefit of the Source I liked is the ability to discard the head of the toothbrush and not the whole thing when it’s time for a new one.  That easily reduces my waste.  The handle was really comfortable to use and the bristles were not too stiff. For the left handers out there, you can flip around the handle so it’s still ergonomically correct for your left hand. To top it off, the broader head made brushing easier and less complicated than with some of the newer toothbrushes on the market.

If you want the chance to check out a Radius toothbrush, drop me a comment and you will be entered to win the Source.  Contest open until July 14th to US residents.

Can’t wait to win, stop over at Radius Toothbrush to learn where to buy their toothbrushes.  You will have a cool conversation piece for your bathroom!

***And the winner is #3, Sophia. Congratulations and enjoy your toothbrush made of money!

Disclosure: I was provided products to test by Radius which in no way influenced my opinion.  My thoughts are completely my own.

    Stopping by from the Lday Bloggers. Great stuff! I'm always looking for little ways to go green….except diapers. Tried that and didn't have a strong enough stomach to do it!
