Thoughts, stories and ideas.

As I have mentioned in my earlier posts, for the past few month, I have been exploring sustainable options for personal products. And one product that I've been struggling with is toothpaste. Friends suggested charcoal and coconut oil-based concoction but neither worked for me - for as long as I can remember, I associate clean brushing experience with minty and foamy toothpaste. It took a few more attempts until I found my pefect toothpaste replacement, Tooth Tablets.

Today, I'm reviewing Well Earth Goods' Unpaste Zero Waste Toothpaste Tablets.

Shipping & Packaging:

Product arrived approximately a week after purchase - it came in a thick brown paper envelope. I'm super enthused how the packaging is 100% plastic-free - from the delivering envelope down to the actual product packaging - that's a radical difference from about dozens of plastic tubes my household approximately consumes in a year. According to the Well Earth Goods, packagin is fully compostable bag made of non-GMO corn starch; Free of microplastic and can be simply disposed of in the 'green bin' or your home compost.

Plus, probably costs less carbon footprint, since the tablets are small and light-weight, these are easier to ship vs traditional toothpaste!

product packaging itself is recyclable - no plastic!

Actual product:

A packet has 125 white, little tablets - that's approximately 2 months supply (125/2=62.5) for 1 individual.  

Well Earth Goods claims that tablets contain no preservatives, dyes, synthetic fragrances, silicones, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, paraffin or other petroleum based ingredient; And are vegan and cruelty free, Non-GMO, gluten free, and fluoride free.

How to use:

Chew one tablet between teeth (a couple or three bites) until a paste is created and start brushing! Use like traditional toothpaste, spit and rinse!

I was pleasantly surpised how the tablets felt similar to my usual toothpaste - good amount of minty taste and foam (a tad less, but nonetheless, there's foam!). Supposedly, the tablet's lack of foaming agents, unlike traditional toothpaste, actually keeps breath fresh longer. I, personally, don't notice that claim but more importantly, my mouth feels fresh and clean after brushing.

Since the tablets come in paper packaging, I recommend transferring to an air-tight container to prevent moisture from getting to the tablets - especially if your bathroom is humid. Alternatively, you can purchase Small Sidekick Stainless Steel Condiment Container also available on Well Earth Goods' website.

Price:

One-time purcahse of a 125 tab packet is at $14. Alternatively, you can opt for a subscription and save 10% at $12.60. OR a buy one, get the second one 15% off.  Discount is automatically given in the cart when you buy 2, or 4, and so on.

Shipping is free!

Verdict:

Unpaste Tooth Tablets are awesome - ticked a lot of boxes for me: works well, minty & foamy, reasonably priced and definitely sustainable.
