Bamboo Toothbrush (Adult)

Plastic toothbrush.

Billions of plastic toothbrushes end up in the landfill each year where they take upwards of 450 years to start to break down.

Tooth Powder with Glass Container

Tubed toothpaste.

Regular plastic toothpaste tubes can technically be recycled, but sadly very few people go to the effort to rinse them out, meaning they almost always end up in the landfill.

Glass tooth powder containers replace the need for plastic toothpaste tubes and allow you to refill and reuse instead.

Floss with Glass Container

Nylon dental floss.

Traditional dental floss is usually made from either nylon (petroleum), teflon (the chemical mouthful polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)), or synthetic wax (petroleum).

These toxins can be absorbed into your bloodstream during those times that you floss a little too hard, or it’s been, say, longer than the suggested three times a day since your last floss.

Discarded dental floss cannot be recycled, takes 30-80 years to break down, and can be harmful to wildlife.

Glass floss containers replace the need for plastic dental floss containers and allow you to refill and reuse instead.

Bristles: Nylon*

*The most all natural option for bristles on the market right now is boar hair, and that to us is a bit out there. There is presently no option for biodegradable bristles, however, our bristles are BPA-free meaning they won't leach toxins.

Cute Tooth Kit

I love the packaging everything comes in. The floss is in a sweet little glass container, the tooth powder comes in a great reusable glass and wood pot, & the toothbrush comes in a box. I have been enjoying the powder, the taste is actually pretty good. I'm still experimenting with fluoride vs. no fluoride so I use both in the day, but I'm excited to have tried this out. I also like that you get two toothbrushes so you don't have to worry about buying another one online. I haven't tried the floss yet as I'm still going through my last one, but it looks cool!

Hi Vanessa - the Base is the perfect place to start your zero waste journey and a good way to discover our most popular items. Such any switch from conventional products to plastic-free ones. We're working on a fluoride version of our tooth powder but it is more challenging than expected. But it's on our radar. Thanks for your support!
