Toothpaste Tablets (Spearmint)
Standard toothpaste tubes cannot be recycled and take over 500 years to break down. Toothpaste tablets are a sustainable alternative. The tablets are in plastic-free container and are perfect for travelling, everyday use, and camping.
- Zero waste packaging
- All natural ingredients
- Nut, soy & gluten free
- Made in Canada
- Making the switch to zero waste toothpaste would help avoid up to 900 plastic toothpaste tubes from landfills per person - that is a total of 450,000 years per person!
28 tablets (14 day) or 65 tablets (1-Month) of the best-tasting, zero-waste alternative to traditional toothpaste.
We have sourced our tablets from Change Toothpaste, who consulted a dentist on the ingredient list and formulated over 100 recipes to find the perfect combination of texture, flavour and efficacy. The tablets taste and work just like traditional paste, without the waste.
Each year, we add more than 900 million toothpaste tubes around the world to landfills and oceans. Standard tubes cannot be recycled and are made up of 11 layers of plastics, polymers and resins, which take over 500 years to break down. This means that every toothpaste tube ever created is still in a landfill. Switching to toothpaste tablets is a small change with a big environmental benefit.
It’s easy! You simply pop a tablet in your mouth, chew the tablet a couple of times, and brush with a wet toothbrush. Adults and children two years and older: brush your teeth thoroughly after meals or at least twice a day or use as directed by a dentist. Do not swallow the tablets. To minimize swallowing, use a single tablet for children under the age of six years. Supervise children’s brushing until good habits are established. For children under the age of two years, ask a dentist.
