Sustainable Packaging is a Must

When I first learned that it takes around 500 years for a toothpaste tube to fully biodegrade in a landfill, my jaw dropped. The tubes of toothpaste that I’ve used throughout my life will remain in a landfill longer than I’m alive. It was something that I had never really considered before, and yet is such a huge waste contributor. Something as simple as making the choice to buy toothpaste with sustainable packaging, can have a positive long-term effect on the planet.  

This is why Elims’ Reflection Toothpaste is a great option to substitute for your old toothpaste. The box in which Elims’ Reflection Toothpaste is packaged is made of 100% recycled paper and is fully recyclable. But more importantly, the tube itself is made from renewable sugarcane that is responsibly sourced from Brazil. Additionally, the sugarcane tube is ASTM certified to reduce carbon emissions. Using this sugarcane helps reduce greenhouse gases and makes the tube recyclable, ultimately reducing waste in landfills. Elims also partners with the Carbonfund.org and TerraCycle to offset their own environmental impact and make it easier for their customers to recycle used oral care products. And on top of all of that, Elims’ Reflection Toothpaste is made of natural ingredients with no artificial flavors or toxic chemicals. It’s not only better for the environment, but also better for you.

Make sure your toothpaste tube doesn’t outlast you and opt for Elims’ Reflection Toothpaste to help reduce your environmental impact. What are other ways that you’re reducing your environmental impact? Comment below!
