Small Change, big difference
This second video was something that popped my mind and seemed worth considering, the size of things. Nowadays -where we produce things in big quantities- a small change can have a huge impact. We could often make things smaller, without loosing function or esthetics. What do you think? Would also love to see other examples beside a toothbrush!
What if they could make a disposable head tooth brush? Like those fancy razors. I know that the connection point will get dirty, but what if the connection is designed to allow us to clean and reuse the handle?
I actually have one of those! Very much like the idea, have to admit mine works a bit crappy because the connector point is not to well made and keeps falling of when I’m brushing. But im sure that problem can be solved. I would love to use a well made version of it!
@alexluna This is exactly what we want for this entire community, great ideas that are developed together. I suggest you start a thread in an appropriate place on this forum and get the help of the community discussing a toothbrush (or indeed other household items) that could work like this, reducing materials while making and waste while throwing away!
why not making it out of bamboo? i guess it is way more sustainable.
well, actually there were some people doing that: http://www.hydrophil.biz
i bought one for testing.
the only problem was, that the bamboo fibers were rubbing at the corner of my mouth.
kinda sad, cause i think it is a gorgeous idea.
mhh.. I think bamboo is fine, but there should be a longer bringing/ polishing process,
or maybe you can cover the material with some kind of wax.
like the saying goes “A Drop in the Ocean”
I have a german touthbrush wich is made with wood and pig bristle. What’s more natural ?
