Responsible Purchasing

I like to be responsible in my purchasing of products here are a couple that are good for all of us and good for the planet.  I purchased a Radius Toothbrush the handle is made from bamboo, the small head of the brush is “only 7% waste” and they have replacement heads you can purchase.  The bristles are 100% castor bean vegetable-based nylon. The toothbrush is recyclable and they have reduced the plastic content package by 30%.

Also I purchased a “Preserve triple razor”.  The handle is made from recycled yogurt cups. “One day a yogurt cup, the next day a razor.”  The razor is recyclable, the packaging is a plastic case which can be used as a travel case or can be recycled.  It is BPA free and made in the USA.  Both products are cruelty free.  When I purchase products like these I feel good about what I am buying because it is a product that will not end up in the landfill and they are creating jobs from recyclables.

There are many more products out there that make good sense and better ideas such as purchasing cloth napkins instead of paper napkins, using a cloth rag to clean up spills and do other household cleaning instead of paper towels.  Buy cleaning products like Mrs. Meyer that are non-toxic – healthier for you, your family and the environment.

What products do you purchase that are made from recyclables or are good for the planet?  I look forward to your comments.
