Sometimes, it’s what’s on the outside that counts too. Brilliant packaging can turn a mundane product into sheer genius. Preserve Products has done just that and is also lending its hand to Mother Earth too. Preserve makes stylish, eco-friendly products for the home that help us lead healthy lives and also minimize the impact on our increasingly stressed environment. They strive to combine socially and environmentally responsible business practices with groundbreaking design to create products that people feel good about having in their homes. Case in point: The toothbrush. Preserve has been making toothbrushes sustainably from recycled yogurt cups since 1997. They have recently partnered with global innovation and design firm Continuum to create the Preserve Mail-Back Pack Toothbrush program. This keeps the toothbrushes and the packaging out of the landfill entirely. Each brush is packaged in a sleeve that doubles as a mailer, so that when you’re ready for a new toothbrush, you simply put the old one back in the original packaging and mail it back to be recycled into something to go back into the planet. Preserve: Nothing wasted. Everything gained.

It may seem gross or too much trouble to some. I see it as a genius, thoughtful idea and think you’re lazy if you think it’s too much trouble. But then again, I recycle ink cartridges, do mail-in rebates and take online surveys. Yes, I’m THAT person and will be THIS person too.
