Good Monday morning! It’s been pretty dang chilly in SC, we even had a few snow flurries the other night!! Hope everyone is staying warm. Time to feature another great company growing green.
Radius is a small natural products design company in the USA. Most well known for its innovative toothbrushes, RADIUS was started by entrepreneur Kevin Foley, an architect now product designer. Kevin one day decided to start on a new journey. And Radius was born. Radius is dedicated to having fun with design to make life better. And that’s IT. Radius is not a product. Radius is a lifestyle. Love Your Radius. Love your Life.
Radius is another company I came across on Twitter. I was given the opportunity to check out their SOURCE tooth brush.
I’ll begin with customer service. My box arrived in the mail with not just my toothbrush, but 2 toothbrushes and 2 types of floss & 2 travel cases! They really went beyond my expectations, I had so many neat things to try!
The product: I have been using the Source toothbrush for almost a month now and I am very happy with it. This is what Radius tells us about the Source:
- 93% Recycled Material – 47% Renewable Resource
- Replaceable Heads + Wooden Handle = Only 7% of toothbrush wasted as compared to 100% of ordinary toothbrushes.
- Wooden Handle is molded from recycled wood bio-plastic resulting in 100% renewable resource.
- New lightweight unbreakable replacement heads made from surgical-grade nylon.
- Dramatically increases softness and efficacy of brushing with 65% more bristle tufts than ordinary toothbrush.
- Reversible for both Right or Left handed brushing – Available in soft or medium bristles.
- Handle lasts forever. Simply throw the heads away!
I love the bristles, it really gives coverage I have not had in my typical toothbrushes and makes a great tounge scrubber! The design is unique, functional and eco-friendly all the way down to the packaging made from recycled plastic soda bottles.
Now I have to admit, I was a little nervous about the cranberry floss. I love cranberries; in a muffin, class of juice or on my plate on Thanksgiving. However, I guess I’ve been a little brainwashed when it comes to brushing. When I think of paste and floss I think of minty fresh! So, why cranberry? This informative site give us a little insight:
Coated with pure unsweetened cranberry essence, which is removed during the action of flossing and deposited on the gums to help break up plaque. The floss is spun in natural beeswax to help sliding through tight spaces.
Research has shown that the proanthocyanidins present in cranberry essence are effective in reversing and inhibiting the clumping of bacteria that cause plaque and subsequently may help in maintaining good oral hygiene.
Plaque is considered the major source of pathogens that cause gingival irritation and periodontal disease.
So, there is a method behind the madness! Alas, I gave it a try and I really don’t taste anything. Now it’s a matter of getting religious about using it. I’m trying Dr. Reynolds, I really am!
Overall, I am really happy to have found this product and the Radius site. Radius is currently running a Winter Sale and all products are 25% Off with FREE Shipping for orders over $50! And, just to make things a little sweeter for one lucky reader Radius is giving away a Source toothbrush! So, go check out Radius and come back here with your thoughts or product wish list. Mine’s the 6-pk kidz brushes!
