Here's something new in the world of eco-brushing technology (yes such a world exists): Radius, which already makes recyclable toothbrushes with replaceable heads, now has an even eco-friendlier version called Source with a funky handle made out of a renewable, plant-based plastic.

It's a combo of an industrial wood or flax by-product and a post consumer recycled plastic that's molded at a high temperature to create a super-durable material that will provide you with years of tooth-cleaning rather than months.
