The only toothbrushes we’ve found that are 100% compostable are sold in Canada. Well, if we have to have it shipped from another country, how are we reducing our carbon footprint?
So, we decided to buy what’s offered locally. We’ve switched brands of dental floss and I’m trying out a Preserve toothbrush made from recycled yogurt cups. (They also sell recyclable razors and tongue cleaners.) The toothbrush works the same as any other toothbrush I’ve ever owned.
The dental floss is by Eco Dent. They claim it’s vegan waxed using rice bran, but I was more interested in the fact it has no plastic packaging. I found these at the Heritage Store, but any health food/natural foods store should carry them. No, we’re not getting paid to try them out or advertise, this is something I’m searching for on my own. So far, they’re the best product we’ve found. Do you know of something better? By all means, let us know!
Any ideas? Here’s one. Maybe I’ll travel to see my girlfriend stationed in North Dakota, cross the Canadian border, and stock up on compostable toothbrushes and dental floss, AND bulk food that will last me for years. There’s an idea! 🙂
I’m serious. There’s an idea.
