Crunchy Cheats is an ongoing series on The Pistachio Project that will basically supply you with suggestions of better products that you can easily buy. Some of these will be products that you can buy if you are not ready to dive all the way into crunchiness and make everything yourself but some of the Crunchy Cheats will be lists of safer brands to chose from when buying products (that you couldn’t possibly make.)
Today’s Crunchy Cheat is toothbrushes
Crunchy Cheats: Toothbrushes

We all know that we need to take care of our teeth but how many of us think about the impact our toothbrush makes on this world? How many of us think about the plastic that we are putting into our mouths twice a day?! Sure, toothbrushes are not the biggest thing we could change but it’s one little difference that will hopefully add up!
