Until recently, when you replaced brushes, you would dispose of the entire handle and a brush head creating an average of 6 g of plastic waste. Using the Brushette system throwing away each unit creates the equivalent of 1g of plastic waste. That's already 6 times less material.
But, because zero waste is better than less waste, we have set up the Recyclette® program for our subscribers. Thus we provide each of our members a pre-addressed envelope to return their used brushettes regularly by mail. We remove the bristles from the brushette and turn them into thermal insulation. Then the Plastic bases are sterilized and re-purposed.
