If you’re used to buying toothpaste in a tube, take a look at the packaging and estimate how much of your purchase will end up in the trash. From the outer cardboard packaging to the plastic tube, the vast majority of what you buy ends up in landfill. With every household in the U.S. using toothpaste on a daily basis, this adds up to a staggering amount of waste.
As we become more aware of environmental issues and climate change, it’s important to find ways to minimize the amount of trash we produce. Plastic toothpaste tubes are extremely damaging to the environment because they cannot actually be recycled. Instead, they sit for years in landfills and slowly release toxins into the surrounding area.
Luckily, you no longer have to rely on standard tubes of toothpaste or plastic-laden products if you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy. At Poppits, we’re committed to high quality oral care – without polluting mother Earth..
What is Zero Waste Toothpaste?
As you might have guessed, zero waste toothpaste is simply toothpaste that produces…. well, zero waste! Instead of having a plastic tube to throw out after use, your toothpaste won’t produce any trash.
What’s more – you won’t end up throwing out the actual toothpaste either. No matter how hard you try, it seems virtually impossible to actually get all of the toothpaste out of a tube. This means you inevitably end up throwing out useable product that you simply can’t access. If you have kids at home, there’s probably a fair amount of toothpaste ending up around the sink, on taps, and on the floor too!
With Poppits, however, you can transition to zero waste toothpaste effortlessly. We simply encase enough toothpaste for single use in a soluble film. When you put the soluble pod into your mouth, it begins to dissolve instantly and leaves you with enough fresh, minty toothpaste to brush your teeth and gums.
With no waste (and no mess!), it’s the simple, safe, and sustainable alternative to toothpaste tubes.
