Preserve, a certified B corp, puts big ideas into small packages. Based in Waltham, Massachusetts, Preserve uses sustainable design to turn yogurt cups into toothbrushes and other everyday products. The toothbrush is a BPA-free product with a handle made from 100% recycled #5 plastic in the USA. Preserve worked closely with dental professionals to create a uniquely design with a curved handle for those hard-to-reach places and a three-level bristle arrangement to gently clean along your gum line. The toothbrush is completely recyclable through Preserve’s mail-in recycling program or Preserve Gimme 5 bins. Learn more about Preserve’s extensive recycling program here on their website.
Preserve Shave 5 features five ceramic-coated titanium blades in a cartridge that moves easily over both contours and angles, all at the end of an ergonomically designed recycled plastic handle. Preserve Shave 5 razors are designed to offer an exceptional shave for both men and women.
Purchase with a Purpose
A “Certified B Corp” is a new kind of business that’s guided by a set of socially- and environmentally-focused principles that differentiate it from familiar non-profit and traditional corporate models. To quote from The B Corp Declaration, these companies “envision a new sector of the economy which harnesses the power of private enterprise to create public benefit. This sector is comprised of a new type of corporation—the B Corporation—which is purpose-driven, and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.”
For sustainable businesses like Preserve, B Corp certification is a public declaration of the values and systems that underpin their entire business. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. Just recently, Preserve scored in the top 10% of all 1,200+ B Corporations for creating the most positive overall environmental impact! Way to go, Preserve!
