- Change Toothpaste
Toothpaste tablets - just like paste without the waste! Change Toothpaste helps you make a small change with a big environmental impact.
Say goodbye to non-recyclable toothpaste tubes! Alberta-based Change Toothpaste's zero waste tablets are packaged in certified compostable pouches to reduce your environmental footprint while giving you a squeaky clean, fresh brushing – without harsh chemicals or gross gobs of paste left in the sink.
Available in one fluoride flavour: Spearmint, and three fluoride-free flavours: Spearmint, Cinnamon, and Bubblegum.
Easy to use - just pop one in your mouth, chew a couple of times, and brush with a wet toothbrush. Works just like toothpaste! The tablet size is consistent with dentist recommendations for the amount of toothpaste to use. Waste not, want not!
Pro tip - Perfect for traveling, camping, the cottage, and keeping in your desk at work.
More than 1.5 billion Toothpaste tubes enter our landfills and oceans every year on a global scale.
Generic toothpaste tubes are made from a combination of materials, often including an interior aluminum liner, which makes them very difficult or impossible to recyclable. On their own, they will take about 500 years to decompose.
Not only are plastic toothpaste tubes bad for the environment, but up to 10% of the toothpaste can be left in the tube when you think it's empty, and most people use more paste than is recommended by dentists.
Terra Cycle offers a free recycling program for dental products, but reducing your waste is far better than recycling - so toothpaste tablets with compostable packaging is the clear ecological winner!

Just tried these for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. When you crunch one up and start to brush with a wet toothbrush, it really does lather up and feel just like brushing with regular paste. Teeth felt clean and fresh afterwards. I'm making the switch!
