There's a high chance the first ever toothpaste tube is still sitting in landfill to this day (unless it's been incinerated). Toothpaste tubes aren't recyclable as they're made of mixed plastics.
These toothpaste tablets are a great option we've switched to at home - minty tasting and with fluoride (they'll keep your dentist happy), just chew and brush with a wet toothbrush. Spit but don't rinse your mouth after so the toothpaste can continue to protect your teeth.
These tablets are vegan friendly and made in Europe. They are free from preservatives, germ-inhibiting substances, binders and contain neither aluminium nor nanoparticles.
Be careful using these with children as tablets could be a choking hazard.
