Earthly Toothbits: Yes or No
Change is not always easy or possible. Sometimes it takes a while to make the decision to actually make a change. Most of the changes we have made in our waste-free journey have been pretty easy and quick to make. But some, like changing toothpaste, take a little longer to make. Well they did for me anyway.

That is A LOT of toothpaste tubes clogging up landfills!! So I am keen to find an alternative that works for our family and our budget but it is proving a little challenging. This is the challenge with trying to move away from plastic, it is not always realistically possibly for you to do right now but I figure if we still try to make a small change, it is better than no change.
I saw the Earthly Toothbits one day when I was doing my monthly online shop and they just looked weird. So I searched for a video showing how to use them and it was just as weird! I kinda just parked the idea and made changes in other places. But last year I had reached the point in our bathroom swaps where it was now or never, so I ordered a tin of Earthly Toothbits.
What was the verdict?
I have made a short video on my thoughts – go watch it and find out if I managed to get it right!
Have you made the switch to Earthly Toothbits? Or have you found another sustainable option?
