Billions of tubes of toothpaste are sent to landfill every year, this is because a majority of tubes cannot be recycled due to the way the tubes are made.
Most tubes are made using layers of laminate plastic with is more often than not wrapped around a think layer of aluminium making it impossible to recycle.
This is a huge concern on our environment plus the ingredients used could be detrimental to your health.

HydroPhil take their environmental responsibilities very seriously, from making sure their products made in China are produced in factories that have good working conditions as well as paying their staff twice the local minimum wage. It makes sense for their production to take place in China because that’s where the raw material, bamboo grows.
Bamboo is not the only renewable raw material HyrdoPhil use in their products, they also use organic cotton, caster oil and conjac root.
All packaging is plastic free and partly FSC certified, they are busy working towards all their packaging bearing the seal soon.
