February’s installment in my Natural Lifestyle Tips series is another amazing product review from Wowe Lifestyle! This one is focused on lower waste oral hygiene tools.
When I was a kid, I had terrible oral hygiene. For some reason, my dental checkups were always great despite my terrible oral hygiene. When I hit college, I improved my oral hygiene dramatically. Unfortunately, something also changed in my oral chemistry around that time, and my checkups stopped being as great as I wanted them to be.
Since the shift, I do whatever I can to help my oral hygiene in easy ways, and hopefully with a low environmental cost. One of the tools my dentist recommended to me was a tongue scraper. He gave me a flimsy plastic tool with teeth on each side. This plastic tongue scraper was [obviously] plastic, and designed to be disposable (though you could reuse it for a while before you needed to replace it). I also have a sensitive tongue, so I hated how rough the teeth made it. Using that tongue scraper was an awful experience, and I thought the entire experience could be dramatically improved.
When Wowe Lifestyle reached out to me about testing some of their products, I instantly gravitated towards their tongue cleaners/scrapers! They have two kinds, copper and stainless steel. They have smooth sides, are made from metal (not plastic), and are designed to last a lifetime. Wowe Lifestyle also has other oral hygiene products that I did not review, but are perfect if you want to reduce your environmental impact. If you use a manual toothbrush, take a look at their bamboo toothbrushes as an environmentally friendly replacement for your plastic one!
