Green-Friendly Dental Routine
You can have a healthy mouth and a healthy planet when you choose a green-friendly dental routine. First, consider compostable dental tools: toothbrushes and floss made of biodegradable materials like silk, wood, and bamboo won’t end in a landfill. Next, consider recycling your toothbrush. After it has served its time in your mouth, consider using it for other purposes, like a keyboard cleaner or a paintbrush. Next you should remember to say no to microbeads. Some toothpaste contains these colorful plastics to make the product sparkle. But they can end up stuck between your teeth and gums. Moreover, they collect in rivers and streams once you wash them down the drain. This leads to ecological damage and harm to fish. When you’re shopping for toothpaste, avoid brands that contain polyethylene, as this is what those beads are made of. Together, we can make a difference for the planet.
