Reducing waste is not just about recycling, composting and turning down the thermostat. Being a steward to the environment can even involve your dental health.

So, here are some tips to make your dental hygiene activities greener:

-Turn the water off while you brush your teeth.

-According to the Eco Dentistry Association, the average person wastes 90 glasses of water each day while brushing their teeth.

-Recycle old toothbrushes (you should be replacing them every 3-4 months).

-Traditional dental floss is not recyclable– while some websites online have methods for washing and reusing your floss, we’d suggest using compostable floss picks or compostable floss.
