Globally we produce around 20B Toothpaste tubes per year. Enough plastic tubes to wrap the globe 133x. The US, UK, and DE alone accounted for 1.7B tubes most of which end up in our rivers, oceans or landfills. It takes circa 500 years for a single toothpaste tube to biodegrade.
Add another 3.5B toothbrushes that are sold every year along with their plastic accessories to the yearly waste. It is clear that something has to change.

Most people don’t realize that most of the toothpaste brands use questionable chemicals to foam, to remineralize, to clean, to stabilize, for the texture, and to increase the shelf life.
We call them the 7 sins of toothpaste.
The average adult inadvertently swallows 3-5% and children up to 30% of their toothpaste with every brush.
We didn’t invent toothpaste tablets, but we did make them healthier, cleaner, and tastier.
