Want to make your bathroom plastic free? We’ve got the answers!
A plastic free toothpaste in a reusable glass pot makes the perfect addition to your plastic free toiletries cupboard. Who said toothpaste had to come in a wasteful plastic tube? Cue our organic plastic free natural toothpaste!
This toothpaste is safe and mild, making it good for your teeth and for the environment. Handy for anyone committed to a zero waste lifestyle! Simply dip your toothbrush into the tub and clean your teeth as your normally would.
Containing calcium carbonate, organic coconut oil and sodium bicarbonate, this natural toothpaste is high in calcium, potassium and magnesium for healthy, sparkling whites. All of the ingredients are pure and natural enough to be food grade certified – which most commercial toothpaste brands can’t claim (and that’s a bit worrying when you think about it).
Here’s a quiz question for you – what is a toothpaste tube made out of? Stumped? Most of us would be. That’s partly because the answer isn’t easy. Toothpaste tubes can be made out of several materials, including aluminium, plastic, steel and even nylon. What do they have in common? They all take a very, very long time to break down when they’re thrown out in the rubbish. Thanks to their sticky contents and multiple parts, plastic toothpaste tubes are also difficult to recycle, with around 1 billion of them heading to the landfill every year.
But hey, it’s not all doom and gloom. Thousands of people are turning to a zero waste lifestyle to reduce their rubbish output. Plastic free toothpaste containers and other plastic free toiletries are a great first step in cutting out unnecessary plastic.
Once you’re done with your toothpaste, you can easily reuse the glass jar for other cosmetics or as part of a zero waste kitchen.
