12 reasons to use tooth powder instead of toothpaste:
Tooth powder is easier and cleaner to use. Just flick or pinch a little bit onto your damp toothbrush and brush your teeth.
Aspire tooth powder is a bulk refillable wellness product. It comes in a container that is recyclable or refillable. Go zero waste and say no to single-use plastic.
With tooth powder, you don't need a tube to squeeze paste onto a toothbrush.
Toothpaste is wasteful. Have you ever tried to squeeze out the last bit of toothpaste from a tube? It's nearly impossible. On average, about 5% of toothpaste never gets squeezed out of the tube, and goes to waste.
With Aspire tooth powder, you can easily get every last particle out of the bottle. There is no waste.
Since toothpaste tubes are not recyclable in curb-side single stream recycling bins, they end up in the landfill.
Globally, we throw away 4.56 BILLION toothpaste tubes every year.
Throwing away all these toothpaste tubes is expensive. Each tube costs around $1, and we consumers pay for that, even though we only use the container once. What a waste of money!
Throwing away toothpaste tubes also wastes the petroleum and metal resources and energy needed to make all these tubes. Single-use plastic is 1.75 % of U.S. carbon footprint, and it takes 1/20 the energy to recycle an aluminum can compared to making one from raw mined ore. What a waste of resources!
Aspire tooth powder is available in bulk, so it's easy to refill and re-use the same container for many years. This will eliminate 12 toothpaste tubes per year for everyone who uses tooth powder instead of toothpaste.
Tooth powder is easy to carry on the airplane, because it doesn't contain any liquid.
Tooth powder is easy to take backpacking and camping, because it doesn't freeze, and is lighter in weight than toothpaste.
