3 Tips for an Eco-Friendly Dental Routine

If you’re looking for ways to make your lifestyle more sustainable, there are many simple steps you can take to help out the environment in your own living space. It doesn’t require much time or effort. You can start small by changing up your habits and adopting an eco-friendly dental routine. Here are 3 tips when you’re ready to get started.

1. Find a Sustainable Toothbrush  

When it comes to dental hygiene, the perfect toothbrush is essential. There are many eco-friendly options out there, including this bristle-free, charcoal option from Grove Collaborative. This toothbrush has many perks. The handle is ergonomically designed from naturally-derived material including cornstarch, and the charcoal bristles are gentle yet effective in cleaning your teeth and controlling tartar build-up. Most importantly, the toothbrush is plastic and BPA-free.

2. Purchase Silk Dental Floss

Sometimes we overlook the flossing step in our dental routines, but it’s so important to remember. Luckily, Public Goods sells silk dental floss coated with all-natural, peppermint candelilla wax. The floss is biodegradable, free from parabens or any other harmful chemicals, and packaged in a glass bottle. Not to mention that it doesn’t break the budget at just $2.50 per bottle.

3. Try Out Mouthwash Tablets

Bite — a sustainable dental product company focused on reducing plastic waste — offers several low-cost options to improve your smile and the environment at the same time. Perhaps the most unique product they offer is mouthwash tablets. These convenient tablets, known as Mouthwash Bits, come in a reusable, travel-friendly tin, and they keep your mouth feeling fresh and clean. Try them out and you’re sure to see the impact they make.
