Green Dentistry Week: Toothpaste

Green your toothpaste Small changes made to our daily habits can add up. This week, with help from the Eco-Dentistry Association, we'll provide tips to help you green your dental hygiene routine.

Tip #2: Choose Greener Toothpaste

Before heading down the toothpaste aisle, know where your brand stands: Tom's of Maine scored highest on Good Guide's list of ecofriendly toothpastes, while Dr. Ken's and Desert Essence earned top honors in Grist's paste test. Of course, you can skip the tube altogether by making your own (more on that tomorrow). Conserve toothpaste by using only the recommended pea-sized amount. For a vegan floss with some green cred, try Eco-DenT. Check out Green Daily's floss roundup for more options.
