    For those looking to reduce the amount of single use plastic you throw away... Have you thought about how many toothpaste tubes you have gone through? I switched our family to Bite Toothpaste Bits last December and I don't think I will ever be able to go back to regular toothpaste. I hope more readily accessible brands are able to adopt this in the future. I just bought the large glass container once and I get refills sent to my door in a compostable package. https://bitetoothpastebits.com/
