Across the globe, more than one billion plastic toothpaste tubes are thrown away each year. This all-natural toothpaste will leave your mouth minty, fresh, and clean - and keep the planet a bit cleaner, too. Packaged in an aluminum tube rather than plastic, and paired with a metal key to squeeze every last drop from the tube, this toothpaste is the easiest way to upgrade your eco-friendly oral care routine.
Each tube contains 5.25oz of toothpaste.

What is Nano-Hydroxyapatite?
Nano-hydroxyapatite is a natural fluoride alternative, first developed and used by NASA in 1970 in response to astronauts returning from space with mineral loss in their teeth and bones. In toothpaste, hydroxyapatite reduces teeth sensitivity, improves enamel health by filling and repairing microscopic pits and scratches on the enamel surface, removes plaque, and remineralizes and restores enamel.
Use this toothpaste just like you would a plastic-packaged tube of toothpaste. Slide the metal tube key onto the end of the tube and roll up the tube to squeeze out every last drop.
Packaging + End of Life
Each tube is packaged in a cardboard tube, which can be recycled in curbside paper recycling.
The tubes themselves are aluminum, which may be recyclable where you live. Always check your guidelines first! Check out this video for how to properly recycle your tube - remember empty, clean, and dry matters.
The metal tube key can be recycled with metal recycling, but the plastic cap is trash.
If you live in Tacoma, these tubes are not recyclable.

We ship ugly boxes
Our commitment to sustainability doesn't end when you press that checkout button.
We pack all of our orders in reused boxes and envelopes, with reused paper packaging, post-consumer recycled paper labels, and even paper tape.
You may not get an IG-worthy unboxing, but you will get the most sustainable packaging we can possibly find.
Oh and did we mention our shipping is always carbon negative?
Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact razor many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.
My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.
I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.
