In the US alone, we throw out hundreds of millions of bottles of toothpaste every year that harms our environment. What if there was a better way to brush our teeth? Companies like Bite have come up with a sustainable answer to this problem with a toothpaste tablet invention design. Just how big of a problem is plastic toothpaste bottles? Bite provides for shocking stats. Like how there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. Adding insult to injury, harsh chemical residues get released into our environments from disposed of toothpaste bottles. Here’s their solution.
Bite | Toothpaste Tablet Invention Design
Bite helps people keep their daily brushing routine but in a way that doesn’t harm our environment. At first glance, this toothpaste tablet invention design is reminiscent of those strange colorless food pills you’d often find in a sci-fi movie. But as these tablets come into contact with saliva, a magical chemical reaction occurs. The tablets begin to foam and create that familiar freshening minty feeling that fills your mouth. Just like regular toothpaste would!
It starts from the ground up with its all-natural ingredients. Have the peace of mind that they use 100 percent, cruelty-free, vegan ingredients like the cavity-fighting xylitol or calcium carbonate which polishes and helps keep your teeth pearly white. No harsh chemicals are found here.
Even the packaging for their invention design is sustainable from head to toe. They only use reusable and recyclable glass bottles to hold the tablets. When your products are with a courier, your package is stored within plastic-free and compostable envelopes made with post-consumer newspapers. or boxes from corrugated cardboard.
When you’re ready to make the switch, you can choose between a one-time purchase or get a pretty hefty discount if you go with their subscription service. And why wouldn’t you? You’ll never have to worry about squeezing that last little bit of toothpaste left the tube ever again.
