Bite Naturally Whitening Mint Toothpaste Tablets

It’s estimated that nearly 1.5 billion toothpaste tubes are discarded every year around the world, with roughly 400 million of those coming from the U.S alone. And given that more of these plastic tubes find their way into our oceans than ever get recycled, it’s worth considering how to make the switch from plastic to safer, more eco-friendly alternatives. This is exactly what one innovative toothpaste brand did. Frustrated by toothpaste packaging and its impact on the environment, Bite set out to reimagine toothpaste by completely dropping the tube. The resulting naturally whitening, minty toothpaste tablets come in refillable glass containers and produce zero waste. Each freshly-pressed Bit is made with all-natural ingredients, 100% gluten-free, vegan, and cruelty-free — without any of the chemical additives found in traditional toothpaste. And the buy-once, plastic-free glass jar packaging can then be refilled with a new stock of Bits, which get shipped in biodegradable packaging that doesn’t use plastic. The result is a zero waste toothpaste that’s healthier for you and the environment. Smile brightly knowing that you’re not contributing to the planet’s pollution problem.
