Gargle Green With 7 Non-Toxic & Sustainable Mouthwash Alternatives

Amber McDaniel

Why polish off your daily oral care routine with sustainable mouthwash?

Because more than 500 million plastic mouthwash bottles are swirled, swished, and spit into landfills yearly. Not even gingivitis is worth that.Fortunately, these sustainable oral care brands are proving we don’t need plastic to fight plaque. So grab your toothbrush, set your time for two minutes, and let’s get into our list(erine alternatives).

Everything we recommend to you on Sustainable Jungle is independently researched and we ask all brands to confirm their claims. To avoid waste, we test products on an as needed basis.

The Best Natural Mouthwash For Non-Toxic Teeth

Georganics offers a waste free way to rid your mouth of bacteria with either dissolvable tablets or fully recyclable aluminum bottles.

Instead of alcohol, treat your teeth to by Humankind’s Mint-Lemon natural non-antiseptic mouthwash that keeps your mouth clean and fresh with grape-derived tartaric acid.

*Note: by Humankind uses RSPO and Fair Trade certified palm oil in other products and their silk floss is not vegan.

by Humankind’s Plastic-Free Mouthwash

by Humankind tablets make for the slickest, most sustainable alternatives to mouthwash liquids around. They’re not only zero waste and vegan, but also free of alcohol, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and synthetic dyes and flavors. 

Powered by tartaric acid (derived from grapes), they balance your mouth’s pH while freshening breath with Mint-Lemon, Ginger, and Peppermint flavors. 

Just drop one tablet into warm water in one of the brand’s durable glass measuring cups—or your own if you opt to bypass buying an initial glass and just get a compostable pouch of tablets.

Then choose if you’re buying one-time or subscribing to have minty fresh breath delivered right to your door, eliminating 2.91oz of plastic waste each time.

About by Humankind

The ingredients they work with are everything we like—easy to understand, scientifically proven, safe for daily routines, and, in most cases, natural and plant-based—and products are made through ethical manufacturing partners in the US, UK, and China.

Georganics’ Best Organic Mouthwash

In the same vein as their zero waste toothpaste tablets, Georganics has a dissolvable take on dental care. Their zero waste mouthwash tablets are a pearly whites’ best travel companion, and come in English Peppermint, Spearmint, Active Charcoal, Orange, and Tea Tree varieties.

They’re free from synthetic colors, fluoride, SLS, glycerin, and water (you add that!). This lowers their transportation emissions and makes them ideal for those times you’re away from home.

They also offer a liquid option if you’re into oil pulling. Based on traditional Ayurvedic practices, it contains organic coconut oil that pulls out debris and bacteria as it’s swished around.

If you’ve never oil pulled before, check out their guide. It’s not like regular mouthwash with a quick 30-second swish. You’ll actually be swishing for 5–20 minutes. We oil pull regularly, and while it does take a little getting used to, trust us when we say it’s not as daunting as it sounds.

The glass or aluminum bottles are recyclable and the outer cardboard box is compostable.

About Georganics

We’d be so bold as to bet (er, bite?) that UK-based Georganics is one of the greenest oral care companies around. Their products are certified vegan (aside from peace silk floss), cruelty free, COSMOS organic, and mostly sourced and manufactured locally in England

Georganics is a member of 1% for the Planet, too.

Also available on Ethical Superstore (UK)

Blue Haven Holistics’ Environmentally Friendly Mouthwash

Blue Haven Holistics’ mouthwash is also inspired by traditional Ayurvedic practices. The Oral Detox oil pulling mouthwash not only strengthens gums, reduces plaque, and freshens breath, but can whiten teeth over time—especially if you’re choosing the activated charcoal variety.

Inside the reusable glass bottle, you’ll find clean ingredients like organic coconut and sesame oils, organic neem, organic clove, and organic fennel seed.

About Blue Haven Holistics

Blue Haven Holistics helps you rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul with holistic luxury bath and body products, all handmade in small batches in Florida, using wild-harvested, organic, and biodynamic food-grade ingredients.

Nix’s Refillable Mouthwash

Mother Nature approved and dentist-recommended, Nix’s non-toxic mouthwash comes in the form of crystals that can be added to water, dissolved, and used like traditional mouthwash.

Natural, vegan, palm oil-free ingredients are used like peppermint oil, vitamin E, grapefruit seed extract, erythritol, and menthol. The formulation freshens breath, controls bacteria, inhibits plaque, and prevents oral cancer.

We’ve tested it ourselves and can speak firsthand to its breath freshening power, which lasts well into the day. Plus, we love the flavor, which leaves a subtle minty taste in our mouth without the overpowering burn of alcohol-based mouthwashes. The lingering minty taste fades quickly, too, in case you find yourself desperate for a second, post-brush cup of coffee (as we often do!).

The first order comes in a 9oz plastic bottle that’s meant to be reused. Alternatively, use your own container and be totally zero waste. The refill crystals come in a reusable glass jar with a bamboo measuring spoon.

About Nix

Nix wanted to nix chemicals in favor of quality, natural ingredients—and no single-use plastics—in their sustainable mouthwash without fluoride, alcohol, or other things we’ve been falsely told are good for our oral health.

It’s made in California and shipped in recyclable cardboard. 

They also donate 10% of profits to organizations committed to tackling environmental issues and helping underprivileged children receive adequate dental care.

Olive & Oak Organics’ Non-Fluoride Mouthwash

For a mouthwash that is as close to the standard variety we’re all used to, check out Olive & Oak Organics. The liquid River Mint Mouthwash freshens breath while supporting gum and mouth health with a blend of essential oils such as oregano. 

Alternatively, the Organic Chai Pulling Oil includes, well…chai spices, myrrh, and chamomile—making that 20-minute swish a much more pleasant experience.

Both options come in lovely cobalt blue glass jars that can be reused or recycled (but with how pretty they are, we’d reckon you’ll be doing the former).

About Olive & Oak Organics

Olive & Oak Organics is a small-batch organic apothecary in Utah, run by respective herbalist and artist Jaquelin and Adrien. Their passions for herbal folklore, plants, natural medicine, health, and sustainability find expression in their product range—from tinctures to elixirs and herbal balms to oils.

Many ingredients are wild-harvested or organic and all are free of fillers, dyes, and chemicals.

About The Dirt

The Dirt is one of Los Angeles’ lowest-waste oral care brands, started when founder Shannon Drake realized many “green” personal care products were just greenwashing

Hence their insistence in using only non-GMO ingredients that are mostly gluten and free of fluoride, toxic flavors, SLS, and xylitol.
