The sustainable toothbrush started off as a rendering exercise, and turned into a pretty remarkable product. Designed by Paris-based Alexandre Touguet, the toothbrush features a three part system that drastically reduces the amount of waste generated by disposing toothbrushes. While the idea of having a toothbrush with a removable head isn’t new, Touguet’s design pushes it to its absolute limit, with the disposable part being a small, capsule-shaped unit that just holds the bristles. With a relatively uncomplicated assembly that allows you to screw and unscrew the handle to pull the toothbrush apart, Touguet’s designed a system that allows you to retain and reuse a majority of the brush, only disposing of the bristles every few months, and helping drastically cut down on plastic waste.
