Every year around Earth Day I get inspired to make a change to be more environmental. I happened to find this awesome website Trash is for Tossers, which is just what I was looking for this year. I have always been intrigued at creating Zero Waste so to find this website right before Earth Day was perfect timing. I am going to try making my own stuff to eliminate packaging from entering the landfill and also to save a little money and control the chemical ingredients that come in contact with my body. Below is the recipe for making your own toothpaste right from Trash is for Tossers:
Toothpaste Ingredients: (feel free to double or triple recipe)
2 Tablespoons organic coconut oil
1 Tablespoon baking soda
15-20 drops food grade mint extract
Directions: Mix it all together. Store in your medicine cabinet in a cute mason jar. Run under warm water if too hard, or put in the fridge if too soft.
