Winter, spring, summer and fall. Paul, George, Ringo and John. Fire, water, earth and air.
Four, it seems, is the magic number. And last week, whilst perusing Savvy Chic after loading up on late season watermelon and peaches at Eastern Market, we found an eco-chic and practical reminder of the power of four — Izola Bamboo Toothbrushes.
These bamboo brushes come in sets of four to last the entire year. The set we picked up is numbered from one to four, but others are printed with the months in groups of three, words to reflect on (contemplate, meditate, rejuvenate, concentrate) and, for a thoughtful hostess, the word “guest.”
While there are no bells and whistles on these, we like that it’s a toothbrush that’s simple and meaningful — which is a great luxury when you think about it. And with their soft bristles and earthy look, these quarterly reminders will definitely get displayed prominently in our medicine cabinet.
Of course, every three months we’ll toss one (or most likely repurpose them for something handy) and then start on the next.
