Biodegradable Toothpaste Tubes are in the market and it’s never been better.
You might be thinking about your hygiene, and choose to brush twice or even thrice a day. Now think about the amount of toothpaste you need. Now think about the quality of the tubes that you threw away in the bin. The quality of the tubes is such that it takes 500+ years to break its molecules down. If you add up all the tubes that your community has dumped, then it adds up to a catastrophe. Around 2 billion of these tubes are seen in landfills and it takes more than 500 years to degrade such materials.

The Biodegradable Toothpaste Tubes: An Introduction
Rocc Naturals has taken an initiative and introduced a solution to this crisis. The toothpaste is packed in biodegradable containers and helps in reducing the plastic issue that the planet is facing right now. These biodegradable toothpaste tubes break down completely in 5-10 years and do not degrade into microplastics.
The entire packaging of the biodegradable toothpaste tubes is sustainable. The box and the cap of the tube are recyclable. The paper is also sourced from sustainable elements. The supermarkets in Australia, have special trays for the biodegradable toothpaste tubes which are also recyclable.
The material making up the toothpaste is safe and is packed with vitamins, minerals, and other essential compounds. It also has a minty taste, providing a classic touch.
Plastic Pollution is the most disastrous issue in the environment. You will find plastics and microplastics everywhere. Landfills, oceans, and other areas are filled with plastic wastes which are killing the flora and fauna of important regions. The Second World War boosted the sales and production of plastic and it is still rising. The production of plastic has increased from 2.3m tons to 448m tons, that is from 1950 to 2015.
