However, I'm still on the hunt for the perfect mouthwash. I am currently using Tom's of Maine Peppermint Mouthwash, and I love the green aspects of this product, but it is a little sweet for my liking. I would love to hear from readers that have a favorite sustainable mouthwash!
Finally, it is important to floss, but often, floss is coated in petroleum based/plasticy feeling waxes. However, there are safer alternatives widely available in most drugstores. It takes a little label-reading, but Tom's of Maine is always a good bet, and their floss is rated very well on the EWG Skin Deep Database.
My next green goal is to purchase a toothbrush made from recycled materials!
