Considering how often we brush our teeth, making a couple switches to lighten your carbon footprint can add up quick! Here are some alternatives to the status quo, non-vegan products that will leave your teeth white and the earth keepin’ on!
- Earthpaste Toothpaste: Earthpaste has been my go-to Toothpaste after trying almost every vegan-friendly toothpaste known to health store aisles. This natural toothpaste skips out on the Glycerin, Fluoride, Artificial Coloring and Foaming Agents that your teeth are just fine without! This clay uses Real Salt, Redmond Clay, and essential oils for a deep cleaning. It also comes in Cinnamon Flavor for a little extra fun! 😉
- Coconut Oil : Oil pulling has become my latest favorite health fad! Oil pulling involves putting a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth, swishing it around for about 20 minutes, and spitting out all the toxins building up in your body. I do this a couple times a week after I brush my teeth for an added boost to keep my gums healthy, and leave my teeth white and shiny!
- RADIUS Toothbrushes: These toothbrushes can be found anywhere from Walgreens to Whole foods, and the interchangeable heads allow you to keep the 93% of your toothbrushes we’re so used to throwing out! The handles are made from Upcycled #5 (the more plastics are upcycled, the harder they get to keep upcycling) materials and the bristles are veggie based! Just how we like things!
Who said cleaning your teeth can’t be more environmentally friendly? Give these products a try and let us know what you think!
