Plastic tubes of toothpaste are so yesterday. Toothpaste tablets are a low waste alternative to traditional toothpaste that whiten and strengthen your teeth, with less hassle and less waste. They're especially great for travel, since they won't fall under any 3oz restrictions.
Both fluoride and non-fluoride options are a refreshing minty flavor, leaving that straight-from-the-dentist clean feeling.
Each compostable packet contains 125 tabs, about a 2-month supply.
Microcrystalline Cellulose, Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Silica, Sodium Lauryl Glutamate, Magnesium Stearate, Mint or Cinnamon Essential Oil, Menthol, Xanthan Gum, Stevia, Citric Acid, Sodium Fluoride (fluoridated tabs only)
Pop a tablet into your mouth and crush it with your teeth until it becomes a paste. Brush and rinse as usual.
Packaging + End of Life
The tablets are packaged in a certified home compostable packet.
The optional storage jar is a clear glass jar with a white plastic lid that can be refilled endlessly.
The tablets are made in Germany and distributed through San Francisco, California.
The optional storage jars are sourced in Seattle, Washington.

Love this stuff
I had been looking for a zero waste toothpaste option with Fluoride for over a year and was so excited to see this come to the shop! It has a very pleasant and not overpowering mint flavor and it is VERY satisfying to bite :) my dentist asked me what I was doing because my teeth looked so healthy after using this for 6 months
Best Thing Ever!
I Love the toothpaste tablets! What a great idea...toothpaste tubes should have never been invented
Not as foamy as toothpaste from a tube but it works just as well.
Love these Tabs
There is a small learning curve of how much moisture to have in your mouth when chewing, but once you figure out you comfort level they are awesome. Never going back to tube toothpaste. I like these better than the Hello brand because they are smaller, minter and seem to feel cleaner.
Cleans just as well as regular toothpaste. Fresh minty flavor!
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.
