12 Dec Are toothpaste tablets simply another craze or are they here to stay?
Toothpaste tablets (for example, Dent Tabs) have recently been taking the world by storm for many reasons. People love the fact that they are compact, convenient and a better option for the environment. This, however, begs the question, “Are toothpaste tablets simply another craze or are they here to stay?”. This article will attempt to answer this question!
The short answer is no, toothpaste tablets are definitely not simply another craze that will be forgotten about within a few months. Toothpaste tablets are definitely here to stay and so many people who have tried them swear that they will never go back to using their old, traditional toothpaste in tube form.
Despite what most of us believe, the correct amount of toothpaste to use is not a ribbon of product along the length of the toothbrush- this is too much! This ribbon of toothpaste comes mainly from toothpaste advertisements and it makes the product look attractive on the brush and nothing more. Dentists state that you only need a pea-sized amount of toothpaste to thoroughly clean your teeth and toothpaste tablets have the benefit that they prevent you from wasting.
With climate change now being a harsh reality, it is now more important than ever before that each and every human being plays their part in preserving our natural resources. Making small changes, like not using products that cannot be recycled and products that will end up in a landfill (or our oceans as micro plastics) can help a great deal.
Sadly, toothpaste tubes are very difficult to recycle and most of them end up in a dump site. To prevent this from happening in the future, why not switch to using toothpaste tablets (which come in a biodegradable or recyclable pouch) and feel better that you are helping to keep our planet beautiful?
