How eco-friendly is your morning routine?
Dental hygiene products are a plastic problem because toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes aren’t recyclable. Consequently they end up in landfill, or the ocean. We’ve got some vegan and eco-friendly products that will help you improve your dental routine.
1. GEORGANICS MINTY CHARCOAL NATURAL FLOSS
Georanics’ Mintry Charcoal Natura Floss is made with bamboo, charcoal, candelilla wax and peppermint essential oil. This minty floss is packed in a reusable zero-waste glass container, therefore reducing your waste and use of plastic. Because the charcoal fibres are made from sustainably grown bamboo, not only does it leave your teeth feeling squeaky clean, it won’t cost the earth.
2. DR. BRONNER’S ALL-ONE TOOTHPASTE
