Floss picks. Flossing is actually more important than brushing and it's really nice to have a pack of floss picks at your desk so you can floss absent mindedly while watching a video or even in bed.

I started doing this a few years ago, and it made a world of difference. I dislike the whole process of using regular floss; having to wrap it around my fingers and then try to maneuver it around inside my mouth, all while staring at myself in the bathroom mirror is a mental burden. Now I just keep a bag of floss picks in easily reachable places where I tend to spend the most time, and I've ended up with really good flossing habits.

I'm in the same boat. I didn't floss until I started using those little picks. I've looked into reusable floss holders, but none of them seem like something I want to regularly stick in my mouth.

A year's worth of floss picks is the same amount of plastic as just a couple of bottles/containers. If you feel bad about the plastic waste but can't find an alternative, you can always focus on getting fewer single-use plastic containers.

There are also wooden ones; still making trash but at that point it's equivalent to a bad toothpick habit lol

Hmmm. Wooden toothpicks would make me look like some 1950s gumshoe...
