Electric Toothbrushes

Using an electric toothbrush with replaceable heads will lead to less waste over time as you only need to replace the heads. There are some newer electric toothbrushes which are made from plant based plastics or recycled materials. This avoids the need for any new oil-based plastics altogether, and can make it easier to dispose of and break down at the end of its life. Going for an option with industrially compostable heads will ensure the smallest overall footprint, though some manufacturers will also offer recycling schemes so you can send them back to them.
