How to recycle our oral care range

There are some products in our new oral care range which are not commercially recyclable. But never fear, we have set up our own recycling program (currently in New Zealand only) to ensure all of your used tubes and toothbrushes can be turned into something else.

What are we doing with the products?

Toothbrushes

1. Bristles are removed and handles are stored until a sufficient weight is available.
2. Toothbrush handles are ground into chips.
3. The chips are moulded into spanners used to open our 20L bulk containers, bringing the plastic. from the toothbrushes back into the supply chain and reducing our reliance on virgin materials.

Toothpaste tubes

We will hold the tubes for the time being and if we can’t find a suitable recycling technology to separate the different layers of the tube ourselves in the near future, we will link into existing specialist recycling schemes.
