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!
