BATHROOM

Want a more sustainable bathroom? Consider this:

One BILLION plastic toothpaste tubes are thrown out each year. Every year. Not to mention the plastic mouthwash bottles, plastic toothbrushes, shampoo bottles, soaps, conditioners. It all accumulates to a whole lot of plastic and 8 million tons of it get dumped in to the ocean every year.

The equivalent of roughly 27.000 trees are flushed down the toilet worldwide every day, The  16 million trees cut down for this shitty (pun intended) purpose represents 15% of global deforestation. Most of these toilet paper rolls come rolls come wrapped in plastic (again adding to those 8 million tons we send to the ocean) which is made from oil adding to global warming in more than one way.

•Choose a toothpaste that does not come in a plastic tube, choose  metal or glass jars, or choose toothpaste bits in jars or paper bags.

•Don't go for  traditional mouthwash in a plastic bottle. Choose a mouthwash in tablet form that you dissolve in water instead.

•Do not use plastic toothbrushes. Choose a biodegradable bamboo brush instead.

•Extend the life of the plastic brushes you have by soaking in vinegar and boiling them, especially good for electric toothbrush heads.

Out of the dental brands on the market Georganics has the largest selection with a product range that includes four different toothpastes (paste in a glass jar, tooth powder, tooth tablets and tooth soap), two different kinds of mouthwash (oil pulling mouth wash in an aluminum bottle and mouthwash tablets) they also carry natural sugar free chewing gum (in glass jars or refills in recyclable/compostable kraft containers), biodegradable dental floss, bamboo toothbrushes and they have an electric toothbrush. The toothbrush is plastic and so are the brush refills BUT electric toothbrush brushes are not used with the same force as a regular toothbrush and can last for a long time if taken care of properly. Simply soak in a 50/50 vinegar water solution over night and then boil for ten minutes every few weeks or as needed. As long as your bristles are working well you can extend the life of the brush this way. The original packaging for the toothbrush can be composted, a far cry from packaging around regular electric toothbrushes.  Package Free Shop carries their products

Bamboo toothbrushes

Remember that yellow toothbrush you had when you were four? That still exists today and will for a long long time to come. Instead of choosing a plastic tooth, go for a bamboo toothbrush and help diverting 4.7 million plastic toothbrushes from landfill every year. Theres plenty of options but we like this from Package free shop or there are many options from Earth hero (and 10% off with code HOWTOLIVEMORESUSTAINABLY)
