THE WHAT
after consulting a dentist on the ingredient list and formulating over 100 recipes to find the perfect combination of texture, flavour and efficacy, these tablets taste and work just like traditional paste, without the waste! these tablets are perfect for everyday use, airplane carry-on travel and camping. Plus, with this mess-free tablet formula, you can say goodbye to gobs of toothpaste in the sink!

THE WHY
Each year, we add more than 900 million toothpaste tubes around the world to landfills and oceans. Standard tubes cannot be recycled and are made up of 11 layers of plastics, polymers and resins, which take over 500 years to break down. This means that every toothpaste tube ever created is still in the landfill somewhere.
Change Toothpaste is one small change with big environmental benefits.

THE DIRECTIONS
It’s easy! You simply pop a tablet in your mouth, chew the tablet a couple of times, and brush with a wet toothbrush. Adults and children 2 years and older: brush your teeth thoroughly after meals or at least twice a day or use as directed by a dentist. Do not swallow. To minimize swallowing, use a single tablet for children under 6. Supervise children’s brushing until good habits are established. Children under the age of 2 years, ask a dentist.
