Say goodbye to plastic toothpaste tubes and hello to solid toothpaste tablets or powder. These eco-friendly alternatives come in reusable, compostable packaging, reducing plastic waste. Simply pop a tablet in your mouth or scoop some powder onto your toothbrush, and enjoy a refreshing and effective oral care routine while minimizing your environmental footprint.

Upgrade your lip balm game with Aoteroad's lip balm in-home compostable paper tubes.
