01 Jan Why Toothpaste Tablets are a Better Option for the Environment.
Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to be kinder to the environment and to waste less? There are many ways in which to make small changes in the way you live out your daily life that can have a positive impact on Planet Earth. Added up, these small changes can amount to a great deal if you are committed.
A great way to incorporate eco-friendliness into your daily routine is to switch out your regular toothpaste for toothpaste tablets (such as Dent Tabs). Most toothpaste tubes cannot be recycled and therefore end up in a landfill where, once broken down into tiny particles, could end up in our oceans or natural waterways. Considering the fact that we go through at least a dozen toothpaste tubes per year, this is devastating news to the environment!
Toothpaste tablets are not only eco-friendly but they also help you to waste less toothpaste. Each tablet contains only enough toothpaste for one use, meaning you won’t overuse the product which is usually the case with a traditional tube of toothpaste.
In addition, toothpaste tablets come in a recyclable or biodegradable pouch which is a positive step forward for those who are concerned about preserving our natural resources.
Another excellent way to make a small but effective change is to swap your regular toothbrush for an environmentally-friendly bamboo one. Since bamboo grows very quickly and biodegrades rapidly as well, once you have removed the bristles of your toothbrush, you have the perfect recipe for the most eco-friendly way to clean your teeth!
Bamboo toothbrushes and good quality toothpaste tablets also make amazing gifts for birthdays and Christmas, especially if the gift recipient is unaware of the many benefits that these two products offer in both dental hygiene and in saving our environment.
