With the realisation of the effects of pollution, mainly plastics, developers have come up with a toothpaste tablet. This tablet is categorised as a zero-waste toothpaste. Since the tablets come in a glass container, it would eliminate the need for toothpaste in a plastic tube. This would, in turn, ease the influx of yet another plastic product that will be on this earth for centuries to come. With this new concept in toothpaste, it could substantially make a difference in the long run. It is slightly more expensive, and some continued research is needed, but it is a good step toward reducing our plastic waste.
- Everything with measure, nothing with excess “, and in the case of toothpaste, it is also applicable. Using the correct amount, and above all, having a good brushing technique.
- Brands usually use two elements to achieve this effect: silica and calcium. They typically appear on the label under hydrated silica and calcium carbonate’s pompous names.
- It’s a very travel-friendly solution, taking up little space and removing the risk of exploded toothpaste tubes.
