The Radius Toothbrush Story
Radius got its start on the tranquil Caribbean Island of Tortola. Founders James O'Halloran and Kevin Foley were architects who were disillusioned by the lack of quality toothbrushes. They were turned off by the small toothbrush heads and their lack of functionality. After some research O'Halloran and Foley found that people didn't brush their teeth for long enough - only 30 seconds to a minute at a time - and people used a single toothbrush for far too long - up to ten months.
Radius sought to design a toothbrush that was functional, easy to use, and enjoyable. What they came up with was the groundbreaking Radius Original.
The Radius Original
Radius Original was designed in 1982, and it provides a plethora of soft bristles that gently massage the gums and clean the teeth. The Original has over 5000 bristles, and it is made from environmentally friendly cellulose. O'Halloran and Foley had created a toothbrush that was functional and enjoyable, and the Original lasted - and still does today - as long as 9 months.
It didn't take long for the buzz to start to build on Radius toothbrushes. Their ergonomic design and amazing functionality won the Original the "Accent on Design" award. After winning the award sales were boosted, and numerous celebrities started to jump on the Radius bandwagon. Sting, Cher, Robert Redford, and Whoopi Goldberg all started using and talking about the Radius Original, and Radius was cast into the national spotlight.
Toothbrushes Made in America and BPA-Free
During its infant stages, Radius was manufactured by outside companies. O'Halloran and Foley wanted to control the manufacturing of Radius toothbrushes, so in 1988 they bought a facility in Pennsylvania. Today, their facility is energy conscious, and the machines they have use only a quarter of the energy that other machines use. Radius's toothbrushes are also environmentally friendly. They are crafted out of cellulose and recycled rubber, and they're also BPA free. Even the packaging is environmentally friendly. The clear cover is 100% recycled, the cardboard is 100% recyclable, and vegetable inks are used for their prints.
Radius continues to grow, and they have created a number of innovative toothbrushes, like the SCUBA, for all ages. They have wonderful toothbrushes that are safe for infants and children, and they even make a number of travel cases and holders for your convenience. Radius has created an entire line of toothbrushes that are safe, environmentally friendly, and functional. Their brushes are gentle on the gums and effectively clean the teeth. Radius is the premier brand for natural toothbrushes that a safe for all ages.
