Packaging is a field that is in permanent evolution. They started in 1983 with a simple cardboard folding box, but soon discovered that customers ripped open the box to see the color and shape of the toothbrush inside. They moved to clear plastic folding boxes - no opened boxes but the carton became plastic trash, once opened. In 1992 they started manufacturing plastic boxes that doubled as packaging to sell and ship in as well as a container to carry your toothbrush on trips or protect it in the bathroom. These containers had a long and useful life before being recycled. The unique problem was that many customers have complained about having multiple RADIUS travel cases, picked up over the years. The plastic box, although recyclable, was also heavy and consumed a lot of fuel in shipping. In 2005 they started investigating lighter packaging and the potential of plant based plastics.
The amount of freight used in distribution of their products represents a major part of its energy use profile A decision was made to change to a new type of package, called a mock clamshell. The clear plastic front is very light and the card can be made from recycled materials. They planned on using NatureWorks PLA, a 100% corn based, compostable plastic for the front panel. Thus far they do not have the durability required for a package that sells from a store shelf. NatureWorks assures them that they will have this achieved very shortly and they will make the final step in their attempt to make more environmentally responsible packaging.

Theirr factory is recycled and started its life as the Haeffner - Dietrich Mill in Pennsylvania's Hex country circa 1863.
RADIUS was founded on the Caribbean island of Tortola. James O'Halloran and Kevin Foley were architects who were fascinated by the idea of a functional and enjoyable toothbrush. They were appalled at the small head, hard toothbrushes of the day. Research indicates that the major problem in oral hygiene is that of compliance - people don't use toothbrushes for long enough and tend to keep their toothbrush for too long. Dentists believe that with diligence - teeth and gums could be perfectly maintained for a lifetime. The average brushing time is from 31 to 65 seconds, depending on age or sex. The average toothbrush is thrown away after 10 months. RADIUS aimed to make the toothbrush comfortable, enjoyable and effective. With a mass of very soft bristles, a large head area for low pressure brushing and a comfortable handle, this toothbrush would let you brush lightly and accurately. Radius manufactures high quality ergonomically designed travel and personal care cases as well as floss and ergonomic toothbrushes. All products are made with high efficiency, low energy use molding machines.
