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 crumble the tablet with your teeth and brush with a wet toothbrush. You'll find each tablet foams up really well. Spit but don't rinse your mouth after so the toothpaste can continue to protect your teeth.
These tablets are vegan and made in the UK. Choose from a one-month supply in a refillable tin or a two-month refill pack of 125 tablets that comes in a home compostable bag. Each tablet contains 1450ppm fluoride - that's the same as regular toothpaste.
For each pack sold, ecoLiving will plant a tree through the Eden Reforestation Project.
