The new Toothpaste Tablets and Bamboo Toothbrush have been created to reduce plastic waste in the environment
Teeth whitening brand Polished London has turned its attention to producing eco-friendly oral care products with two new launches.
The brand’s new Polished London Toothpaste Tablets (£6.99) are zero-waste alternatives to traditional toothpaste tubes which cannot be recycled.
The tablets are said to contain calcium and sodium carbonate to polish and clean teeth, alongside sodium monofluorophosphate, a fluoride to prevent tooth decay, and kaolin, a natural clay that helps to remove stains.
The brand is also offering consumers an alternative to plastic toothbrushes with its latest product made from bamboo.
The Bamboo Toothbrush (£4.99) is 100% biodegradable, BPA-free and housed in a recyclable box.
“We wanted to create a range of environmentally-friendly products that everyone could benefit from, enjoy and still look good in your bathroom cabinet,”said Debbie Sleeman, founder of Polished London.
“This range is eco-friendly, vegan and all made in the UK.
“The Toothpaste Tablets are a fun alternative to your regular toothpaste, as well as being 100% pure ingredients that are not watered down in any way.”
Speaking about the toothbrush, she added: “The Bamboo Toothbrush also doesn’t cause damage to pandas or the environment.
“Plastic waste is a global problem and we are aware of how much harm it does to our environment.
“It takes 500 years for a toothpaste tube to decompose, which is one of the many reasons we decided we needed to do something about this.”
