What’s pearly white and green all over? Tom’s of Maine toothpaste!

Thank you Tom's of Maine for sponsoring this post.


When I committed to trimming my waste in 2016, I happily replaced my plastic toothbrush with one made from bamboo and started making my own deodorant. I did not, however, commit to DIY toothpaste - I’ve had too many issues with my mouth over the years. What I did, instead, was switch to Tom’s of Maine.





Why Tom’s? Because besides being a leading natural products company, they are committed to sustainable practices across the board. The Tom’s of Maine Stewardship Model guides every decision the company makes ensuring that ingredients, processing and packaging meet rigorous standards for being natural, sustainable and responsible. The company has published zero waste goals and all their packaging is recyclable through a partnership with TerraCycle or participating municipalities.
