Introducing: Sustainable Oral Care

As you probably know by now, we’re on a mission to make the world a better place by offering sustainable products in plastic-free packaging. When we looked at oral care, we knew we could do better. Now, after many months of research, impeccable ingredient sourcing, and thoughtful formulation, you can do better too (twice a day, in fact!).

Even better: a percentage of all our Oral Care sales go to the Colorado Outward Bound School Scholarship Fund.

Here’s a list of our new Oral Care products, and why you need them in your life.

Vegan Dental Floss and Refills
It’s such a bummer when you get to the end of a roll of dental floss, only to find yourself stuck with a plastic container you can’t recycle. Our 100% Plant-Based and Cruelty-Free, fully compostable floss is made from Vegan PLA (corn starch), coated with Candelilla wax and mint essential oil. It comes in 100% renewable, infinitely recyclable glass jars with aluminum lids which you can use again and again. You’ll love the container's convenient tear-notch cap and the way the floss slides easily and gently between teeth and helps remove plaque.

Detoxifying Charcoal Toothpaste Tabs
Perfect for use at home or the campground, our toothpaste tabs are 100% sustainable and come in recyclable and renewable glass jars with aluminum lids. This waterless formula (simply place a tablet in mouth and bite to break up and activate with a wet toothbrush) helps prevent tooth decay and plaque buildup, and Active Charcoal helps purify the mouth and freshens breath (see our prior blog post on the benefits of this amazing ingredient).

Whitening Mint Toothpaste Tabs
Whiten and brighten, sustainably. Just like our Charcoal Tabs, these are perfect for use at home or the campground and come in 100% recyclable and renewable glass jars with aluminum lids. This waterless formula (simply place a tablet in mouth and bite to break up and activate with wet toothbrush) helps prevent tooth decay and plaque buildup.

Plastic-free Bamboo Toothbrush
Travel with a toothbrush that loves the earth as much as you do. Our convenient 2-piece bamboo case is perfect for on-the-go daily dental care. Sustainable, soft toothbrush bristles are made from castor bean oil, and are gentle on your teeth. Just like a plastic toothbrush, you should replace your Alpine Provisions Plastic-free Bamboo toothbrush every three to four months.

Copper Tongue Scraper
Made with natural copper, our Tongue Scraper removes bacteria from the tongue, which naturally helps freshen breath. This easy-to-use self-care superstar cleans up quickly (with warm water and mild dish soap) and includes a handy, sustainable cloth storage/travel pouch.

Clean teeth, fresh breath, and no icky feeling of having to throw away plastic when you’re done with your product. Pucker up, buttercup, there’s something new to celebrate. Happy brushing!
