Preserve Recycled Plastic Eco-Friendly Toothbrush - Review

I used to be a yoghurt cup but now I'm a toothbrush!

Preserve are consulted closely with dental professionals to create a BPA free toothbrush that gets your teeth cleaner but minimizes your impact on the environment. While the bristles are brand new just for you, the handle is made from recycled yoghurt cups. The design also includes an easy-to-grip curved handle for those hard-to-reach places, tiered bristles for a gentle, thorough clean and a three-level bristle arrangement to massage your gums. The reusable, clear Travel Case that your toothbrush comes in features ventilation holes and a cap to keep your toothbrush clean and dry wherever you take it or store it. Preserve do not test on animals and are recognized by Leaping Bunny as a cruelty-free company. All of the materials in Preserve products are vegan and are also completely recyclable after use!

I've been using my pink Preserve toothbrush for quite a few months now and I still enjoy using it as much as the first time I did. The handle of the toothbrush is nicely shaped and really comfortable to hold. I have both the soft and the medium bristles as I wasn't sure which one to get as first. I prefer the medium to the soft as the soft for me, feels as if I'm not getting a thorough clean. The medium bristles aren't too hard or too soft on my teeth and I like the in-between stages. I get sensitive teeth sometimes though and I do find that the brush with the softer bristles is gentler to use when this happens. I have found that toothpaste can get stuck in between the bristles after a lot of use and I've tried cleaning them with boiling water but it still didn't seem to budge the old toothpaste. I really love that you can post off your old toothbrushes to get them recycled and the travel case is very handing when travelling! This brush has been a great find and I love the variety of colours that are available too, I will continue to use and purchase these toothbrushes.

£2.99 for both the Medium* and Soft* Preserve toothbrushes.


  1. I didn't even think about toothbrushes containing BPA! This one looks great though and even better that it's a Leaping Bunny certified company. I'll definitely be looking into getting one of these :)

    1. Hi Jessica,
      That's great to hear :-) This toothbrush is such a great alternative to a regular toothbrush!
