Fed up with throwing your toothbrushes into landfill? This fully recyclable electric toothbrush helps make your home more sustainable and it frees up space on your basin top too.
Suri electric toothbrush review
Anyone who has tried one will know that electric toothbrushes do tend to clean your teeth better than manual alternatives. Wipe your tongue around your teeth after an electric clean and your teeth will likely feel smoother and shinier than when brushed with a manual brush.
Electric toothbrushes, however, are typically made out of plastic, and while, in theory, the manufacturers may say that the product is largely recyclable, it practice it won't be, as most recycling facilities fail to pull apart a product and remove the different component plastics and metals for recycling. That's where the Suri electric toothbrush is different. It is fully recyclable.
Recyclable toothbrush heads
Once the electric toothbrush head has reached the end of its life, the plant-based heads can be returned in the freepost compostable bag that comes with the product and returned for recycling. And, if there should be a problem with the product, Suri will try and fix it or recycle it. So it's a pretty sustainable solution. They just need to make the brushheads in a selection of colours, however, to make it easier to share with the household. If you live in a small home you don't have the space or perhaps the money to buy a whole electric toothbrush system for everyone living there, plus it's much more sustainable to share.
I'm taking the manufacturer's word for this, but the Suri electric toothbrush also claims to be one third the size of a standard electric toothbrush, so it takes up less space in your bathroom. Plus, it fixes with a little magnetic sticker to a mirror or wall tiles, so it frees up space around your basin too.
It comes with two settings and cleans the teeth and tongue beautifully. It charges with a USB charger and when you place the electric toothbrush in the travel case, which doubles up as a charger, a UV light cleans the brush head, so it's extra hygienic.
