Thinking more about your environmental impact this Earth Day? Consider these four tips to green your dental routine so you can take care of your teeth, and the earth!
1. Turn off the water while you brush. Leaving the water running while brushing your teeth can waste five gallons of water. If you're brushing twice a day (and we know you are!), that wasted water adds up quickly.
2. Unplug your electric toothbrush charger when not in use to reduce the phantom load of electricity consumption.
3. Use refillable floss containers to cut down on plastic waste. If you prefer a floss pick, try one made of biodegradable materials like Grin.
4. Reuse those old toothbrushes! The bristles are perfect for cleaning hard-to-reach places and polishing jewelry. Run them through the dishwasher to sanitize and then use an old brush for painting and craft projects.
