Join the plastic-banishing crusade by eschewing typical packaged toothpaste and using the Lush Toothy Tabs. These chewable tablets, which offer an effective alternative to toothpaste, do away with non-earth-friendly packaging, ensuring your teeth-brushing is good for your mouth as well as the environment.
Lush launched its Dirty flavor of Toothy Tabs last year and now, there are five more flavors to choose from. These include Aquatic (containing wakame seaweed powder to help restore minerals), Ultrablast (a minty flavor made with Wasabi, which has natural antibacterial properties) and Atomic (a cinnamon and clove tab made with fairtrade ingredients). Each box of Lush Toothy Tabs retails for $3.95 and contains 40 tabs.
To use one of the Lush Toothy Tabs, just chew one up in your mouth and let it foam. Then, use your wet toothbrush to brush your teeth for a solid three minutes.
