Minty Vanilla - Chewpaste
I received the chewpaste along with a natural toothbrush (which I also love, by the way). It takes a little getting used to, this masticating of the paste instead of squeezing it out of a plastic tube, but I'm tickled to find something that gets away from the plastic! The taste may take a little getting used to as well - I'm abnormal because I don't like peppermint, but this tastes more like wintergreen, which I do enjoy. As a child, we brushed with straight baking soda, so this is definitely an improvement! You'll probably notice a bit of saltiness in the chewpaste, but I can easily live with it. The new delivery system is a psychological adjustment, yet I'm willing to make the adjustment in order to (1), reduce the messiness surrounding traditional toothpaste tubes (2), do away with the plastic waste, and (3), clear space in the bathroom - the little bottle's cute and small-footprint, compared to unwieldy toothpaste tubes!
I absolutely love the toothpaste tablets. No more plastic waste and they are very convenient, especially when traveling. I’m sold!
Chewing the tablet took a few days to get used to but it does an excellent job of cleaning my teeth. I think my teeth are whiter, too. I feel good about not using plastic. I would be in favour of a refill envelope being available for the glass jar. Thanks etee!
