I’ve already written a full handy hints post before. But today I want to show you something quick and easy that you can do right now.
When your toothpaste tube gets really close to empty, you can cut the end off so you don’t have to work so hard to get at the last little bits. And then, because your toothpaste tube is probably made of aluminum or some other metal, you should recycle it!
If you are looking for a less wasteful option in the future, consider using the green Toothy Tabs or other toothpaste tablets. They use less packaging and you can get more product in less area. And it’s pretty darn cool! There are other quick green ideas out there, though the magic of this one is that it’s really cheap.
