Green Oral Care: How to Create an Eco-Friendly Oral Hygiene Routine for the Whole Family

Mar 03, 2024

At RADIUS, we're passionate about promoting sustainability in every aspect of oral care. From toothbrushes to toothpaste and floss, we offer eco-friendly options that prioritize both the health of your family and the health of the planet. In this blog, we'll explore how you can create an eco-friendly oral hygiene routine for your entire family, making small changes that can have a big impact on the environment.

1. Choose Sustainable Toothbrushes

Traditional plastic toothbrushes contribute to the growing problem of plastic pollution in our oceans and landfills. Instead, opt for toothbrushes made from sustainable materials like bamboo or biodegradable plant-based plastics. Our Source™ Brush and Big Kidz® Replaceable Head Forever Brush® (6yrs+) are made from recycled materials and are 100% recyclable, providing an eco-friendly alternative to conventional toothbrushes.

2. Switch to Natural Toothpaste

Many conventional toothpastes contain artificial ingredients, preservatives, and harsh chemicals that can harm both your oral health and the environment. Our USDA Organic Mint Aloe Neem Toothpaste is made with natural ingredients like chamomile flower extract and coconut water, free from artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives. It's also packaged in recyclable tubes, reducing plastic waste.

3. Embrace Eco-Friendly Flossing

Traditional dental floss is typically made from nylon, a non-biodegradable material that can take hundreds of years to decompose. Our Natural Silk Floss is made from 100% biodegradable silk and coated with natural candelilla wax for smooth, effective flossing. It's gentle on your gums and the environment, providing a sustainable alternative to traditional floss.

4. Reduce Plastic Waste

Plastic waste is a significant environmental concern, with billions of toothpaste tubes and floss containers ending up in landfills each year. Our toothbrushes and toothpaste come in eco-friendly packaging made from recycled materials, reducing the need for single-use plastics. Additionally, our floss is packaged in a recyclable and compostable container, minimizing environmental impact.

5. Educate Your Family

Teaching your family about the importance of eco-friendly oral care practices can help instill lifelong habits that benefit both their health and the planet. Get your kids involved in choosing sustainable oral care products and educate them about the environmental impact of plastic waste. By leading by example, you can inspire your family to make conscious choices that support sustainability.

6. Support Sustainable Brands
