Every year, Europeans generate 25m tonnes of plastic waste, but less than 30% is collected for recycling. Not only that, more than 80% of marine litter is also plastic. Although dentists recommend adults to use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste, most users apply excess, generating more plastic tubes and more landfill waste. Dental Crush uses less packaging than conventional toothpaste. One packet of Dental Crush only uses 4g of packaging for a 2 months’ supply.
Our Dental Crush packets cannot currently be recycled but there are lots of cool ways that you can up-cycle your pouch. Our favourite re-use is using it as a planter for seeds.
