These Toothpaste Pills Are Going to Completely Change Your Morning Routine

A bit of (depressing) trivia: An estimated 1 billion plastic toothpaste tubes end up in landfills each year. But one sustainability-minded company, Bite, is trying to change that.

Introducing toothpaste pills. The tiny little toothpaste “capsules” are made from all-natural toothpaste ingredients pressed into pill form. Once you pop one in your mouth, just bite down until the pill starts to foam, then begin brushing. Yep, you don’t even need water (except to rinse, obvi), so using them on the go works great, too.

The best part? They’re plastic-free and stored in a glass bottle that’s meant to be refillable, so double whammy on cutting back on plastic and saving the earth with non-harmful ingredients (YGG!). They come in two varieties: whitening mint and mint with activated charcoal.

The pills can be ordered on a monthly subscription basis (for $7.50/month), or as a one-time purchase for $12 a bottle.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, be sure to try out Bite’s other products—like the nHAP mouthwash, which is the same concept as the toothpaste pills. There are also plant-based toothbrushes and dental floss available for purchase, all of which are 100 percent compostable.

No more squeezing the last glob from the tube and less plastic in landfills? Now that’s something to smile about.
