The­re this par­ti­cu­lar friend of mine who just loves brushing her teeth. It’s an iro­ny that she only recent­ly recei­ved an elec­tro­nic tooth­brush from me when I left my bat­te­ry powe­red Braun Oral‑B Advan­ce Power 400 with her.

The bat­te­ry powe­red solu­ti­on of cour­se isn’t that envi­ron­ment­al­ly friend­ly, but it is very con­ve­ni­ent when you don’t want to car­ry the char­ger with you & with decent bat­te­ries and exch­an­ge­ab­le brushheads, it does make sen­se to buy one of these.

And then I came across this bat­te­ry powe­red one-way solu­ti­on today…


..the “Col­ga­te 360° micro­So­nic POWER” one way tooth­brush, which comes with an AAA bat­te­ry and tongue-clea­ner on the backside for “just” EUR 5,99.

Ok ok, I *had* to buy it becau­se of rever­se engi­nee­ring rea­sons (i love this excu­se :-), but one-way solu­ti­ons like this one just make me feel sick. I bet the­re are qui­te a few users who would just even dis­po­se this tooth­brush after use with the bat­te­ry included.

Bat­te­ries ARE a hazar­dous sub­s­tance and must never be part of the domestic waste!
