Radius Source Toothbrush Medium Sized - Review*

Brush your teeth the big way!'

So here's my second item that MyPure kindly sent to me for my monthly review! The Source toothbrush has long-lasting bio handles which are made from bioplastic which can be either made from recycled dollar bills, recycled paper or recycled wood. It also has a replaceable head and further replacement heads can be purchased in a 2-pack for £5.99 from here. It reduces 93% of waste from standard toothbrushes and lowers the cost of brushing. It also has a right or left-hand configuration (just flip the head), which ensures the dentist recommendation of the 45-degree angle of bristle to teeth. The radial bristling also allows you to brush in tight spaces and also dramatically increases softness and efficacy of brushing with 65% more bristle tufts than ordinary toothbrushes and has a non-aligned bristle layout to avoid tooth erosion.

I decided I needed a new toothbrush after going back to my old toothbrush after trying out the Environmental Toothbrush and not liking it. I wanted a vegan toothbrush, something more eco-friendly and interesting, so I went for the medium bristled Radius Source toothbrush which was all of the above. I really like how you can choose your toothbrush handle out of the three available recycled materials, dollar bills, paper and wood. I went for the recycled paper for a clean white finish look. All brushes also come with a spare replacement head and these are available on the MyPure website linked above. The really cool thing about this toothbrush is that both right and left-hand users can use this brush comfortably just by turning the head around the opposite way! It may take you a few brushes to get used to the larger than normal toothbrush head. I think that the larger head size is great and I feel like I'm getting a really good clean throughout my mouth including the tight spaces.

Edit (December 2014): I've used my Radius Source Toothbrush for a few months now since writing the above but I stopped using it about a month ago now due to my teeth and gums becoming very sensitive from the large head on the brush. I have now switched brushes and my teeth and gums feel much better. This is something to keep in mind if you already have sensitive teeth and gums.
