If you are looking for plastic free alternatives on your journey towards a zero waste dental routine you are in luck, because there are plenty of accessible options. In this post we will discuss some of them.
So far, we don’t have any dental problems, so our zero waste dental routine is quite simple.
We found some in Amazon, with compostable and vegan bristles made of active carbon. I want to stress the importance of checking if the bristles are compostable or not. In case they aren’t compostable, the best way to go is to remove them before composting.
1. Baking soda and coconut oil
We use one table spoon of baking soda and one of coconut oil, which we keep fair trade and bio for environmental concerns. Here you can watch our video tutorial.
2. Solid tooth paste
We decided to give the solid ones a try, which we could obtain in bulk at our local Zero waste store. In this case, we decided to buy mint-flavored fluoride toothpaste. I prefer coconut oil, but is of course good to try out new things.
We did not need dental floss until recently, but we bought it upon recommendation from our dentist. We discovered this option made of active carbon.
