15 Jul A Zero-Waste Way to Brush Fluoride-Free
Bite is revolutionizing oral hygiene, bit by bit.
The newest tablet is here, and no, it’s not an Apple product. It’s toothpaste!
Bite is completely changing the way we brush our teeth by switching out tubes of paste for glass jars of dry tablets. Unlike the titans of the fluoride industry, this toothpaste company is creating a product that involves zero plastic, and zero fluoride.
With over 1 billion plastic toothpaste tubes ending up in landfills each year, Bite’s making one small step for toothpaste and one giant leap for mother earth.
How Does It Work?
The tablets, or “bits,” come in a small glass jar, an infinitely recyclable- and dare they say aesthetically pleasing- container. It’s meant to be kept and reused with each new shipment of paste, which comes in a biodegradable pouch. Then, the company puts it simply.
“Place one bit in your mouth, bite down, brush with a wet toothbrush – twice a day, every day.”
They come in three flavors- fresh mint, mint with activated charcoal (hello shiny, white smile!) and berry twist. The last is specifically meant to get kids on board with saving the earth from a young age, which is pretty cool.
What’s Inside Bite?
Here’s our favorite part about this toothpaste: it’s made with only the good stuff. We already know that regular toothpastes have serious chemicals in them, and that it’s not always easy to avoid the toxins. Since making your own toothpaste isn’t a reliable alternative for most people, why not let Bite do it?
The bits are fluoride-free, contain no harsh chemicals, and they lay out the ingredients for you right on their website. That’s right, no hidden toxins. What a breath of fresh (minty) air. Plus, bite bits contain nano-hydroxyapatite (nHAp), a natural form of calcium that makes up 97% of your tooth enamel and 70% of the dentin of your teeth. Dentists may not love when you tell them you are “fluoride-free”. But they will breathe a sigh of relief when they hear you’re using nHAp.
But why stop there? Bite is gluten-free, vegan, and cruelty-free as well.
How Do I Get Bite?
With over 11,000 positive reviews and news coverage in media outlets such as Forbes, Women’s Health, and Oprah Magazine, it’s no wonder everyone wants to try Bite. Here’s how you get it:
Sign up for their subscription service. Every month, Bite will ship these dry tablets to your doorstep so you never have to run into a CVS again.
Commitment-phobe? That’s okay. You can try a smaller bottle of 62 bits (one month of cleaning) for just $12, in any of their flavors.
Isn’t it time your toothpaste matched your sense of humor? That’s right, I’m talking dry. 😂
