Product Life-cycle Flowchart and Matrix
We plan on using PLA filament to make our prototype by means of 3D printer. This material is fairly environmentally safe because it is made from plant materials and is formed using hot water. There is no real harmful result from the production of our product. It is mainly made from PLA filament, nylon, and floss. It is then used in a household for 3-4 months where it withstands daily use. After this time, the toothbrush is disposed of and will most likely be recycled and the material will be used to make more. Our plan is to be as environmentally friendly as possible and still maintain high quality.
