If you want to take recycling one step further in your household, consider equipping the family with recyclable toothbrushes. Recycline of Somerville, Massachusetts, is the only company to offer toothbrushes and tongue cleaners made from recycled plastics. Via a partnership with Stonyfield Farm of Londonderry, New Hampshire, Recycline converts plastic yogurt containers into 100-percent recycled handles. (In the past year and a half, more than one-half million yogurt cups became toothbrushes and tongue cleaners, according to Matt Rogers, Recycline's sales and marketing manager.) All the brushes have extra-soft virgin-nylon bristles. To complete the cycle, you can send your used products back to the company, where brushes, scrapers, and even mailers are turned into plastic lumber. For more details, log on to www.recycline.com.
