Today I came to the realisation that dental care is going to be practically impossible to do plastic free and I can’t not clean my teeth during July.
The problem is I have sensitive teeth.
A few weeks back I bought some toothpaste from ZeroGreen which is great. It comes in a glass pot and has a really sweet little bamboo spatula so that you don’t have to dip your toothbrush into it. It’s not very minty and it doesn’t froth but my teeth feel great after using it. Coupled with some silk dental floss I was cooking with gas!! (Unfortunate turn of phrase I now realise in this age of global warming!!)
But last week my tooth sensitivity came back so I had to return to my usual toothpaste and today I had to restock. Not only does the toothpaste come in a plastic tube but you get a free cardboard box as well – sooooo generous!!!
I’m not very pleased about this, but what I’m intending to do is combine the Sensodyne with the Georganics and see if that keeps my tooth sensitivity at bay. At least I will have reduced my plastic consumption.
And I’ll write to Sensodyne and see what they have to say on the matter.
If anyone knows of any plastic free toothpaste for senstive teeth then please let me know!!
