Today Colgate Announced the "first" recyclable toothpaste tube....Congrats Colgate!!!
“Building a future to smile about means finding new packaging solutions that are better for the planet, but until now there hasn’t been a way to make toothpaste tubes part of the recycling stream,” said Justin Skala, executive vice president, chief growth & strategy officer for Colgate-Palmolive.
Toms' of Maine had a recyclable metal tube for three decades starting in the 1970's before they were bought by Colgate Palmolive in 2006...Colgate changed the Tom's recyclable metal tubes to plastic shortly after they bought them!
Davids has had a recyclable metal toothpaste tube since we launched in 2015.
We use a Non BPA liner on the inside of the tube so there is no paste to metal contact.
We admire that Colgate is trying to clean up their act, but nothing beats the recyclability of the Davids aluminum metal tube!
You know the story of Davids vs. Goliath ;)
