How is this not trending more? Their partner-brands are massive and going out of their way to make it work it seems (chewable toothpaste 🦷by OralB ...), no useless plastic or cardboard, massive value for the brands as recurring purchase almost guaranteed.... Prediction time: Amazon will buy them or recreate if it's mildly popular. #green 🌍 👍🛒
@antoinetheman shameless plug 😉 but have you seen http://bitetoothpastebits.com ?
@antoinetheman Agree with you. This should be trending big time because this is a huge deal. Major brands working together to help reduce single plastic use. This kind of initiative can help change the world.
@antoinetheman @asher_hunt Interesting toothpaste but not in my budget. x.x
I was just thinking that this should exist a few weeks ago. I'm glad someone is doing it! With all the deliveries we get from online shopping these days, packaging is getting ridiculously wasteful. This is a brilliant solution!
This is the type of disruption our planet desperately needs right now. That being said, it's a good first step but equal thought needs to be applied towards shipping/distribution of products like this. Getting rid of single use plastic is fantastic - but shipping one off orders is still a problem. Planes emit a ton of pollution as well. If this could be done via a network of local sanitation/resupplying centers, this would be amazing.
Exciting business model, especially now that companies such as Unilever, Pepsi and more are on board with this, only thing that could disrupt it, is timing, it would need to be efficient, but I'm excited to give it a try!
I love this! Great idea and move towards less waste. I could easily see this having some kind of discount for reusing the same containers (à la Starbucks and the discount for bring-your-own cup)
