Toothpaste. It’s a necessity, unavoidable waste…. right?
Wrong! I am thrilled with today’s step in the right direction.
Thanks to Lush for creating toothy tabs! The container is made out of recycled plastic and can be recycled much easier than a toothpaste tube. In fact, if you send your container back to lush they’ll reuse it!
There are a variety of toothy tab flavors. My personal favorites are “Dirty” and “Miles of Smiles” you just chew on the tab, wet your toothbrush, and brush like normal. It foams up the same way toothpaste does!
Another waste-free toothpaste is Poppits which is launching soon. I can’t imagine liking a toothpaste more than Lush’s toothy tabs but I’ll give Poppits a try when it launches. It’s good to know that there will be more than one way to brush your teeth waste-free!
