image by Mable With around 2 billion plastic toothbrushes being thrown out every year in the US alone, switching to a sustainable one is more important than ever. Not only are your toothbrushes important, but your toothpaste and floss, as well. Even though a lot of conventional toothpaste is dental approved, most of it has been really harsh on my mouth, and I’ve wanted to find an alternative where I wasn’t constantly purchasing plastic tubes with ingredients I knew nothing about. I switched to natural tablet toothpaste this past year, and LOVE them. I still always have great dental check ups after using my bamboo toothbrush and tablet toothpaste, and I’m cutting back on my plastic waste! It’s a win-win.

OLAS

Mouthwash & Bamboo Toothbrushes

If there is one mouthwash that looks rather refreshing, it would be this one by Olas! Their mouthwash is inspired by the ocean’s natural cleansing ability and boundless beauty.

It is free of chemicals and packed with healing properties for fresh breath and a healthy smile, and is made from a formula designed with marine bio active ingredients. The added essential oils help restore gums and teeth and promote optimal oral health.

Quip

Eco-Friendly Electric Toothbrush, Refillable Floss, Toothpaste, Kids Toothbrush

I’m actually going to order one of these toothbrushes next week. I’ve heard such great things, and, to be honest, I miss having an electric toothbrush. Bamboo is great, but to find an eco-alternative for electric is awesome. These aluminum based brushes provides you sonic vibrations with 2-minute timer, 30-second pulses, & multi-use cover, and are meant to last a lifetime. You can even get a solar battery charger!


sustainable-toothbrushes-natural-zero-waste

Radius

Toothbrushes, Toothpastes, Flosses

This brand has a lot of great options when it comes to vegan flosses. 

Their toothbrushes have vegetable based nylon bristles with a curved bristle-bed, massaging the gums rather than aggravating them. Repurposed wood, paper, and even recycled dollar bills go into their ergonomic handles, which are designed to reduce pressure on teeth and gums for optimal oral health.
