No More Toothpaste in Box Packaging

Official campaign hashtag: #NOBOXTOOTHPASTE Why does toothpaste come in a box? Toothpaste is used by two-thirds of the world’s population on a daily basis. The box makes it more expensive for the makers and consumers, and the only thing we do with it is to throw it away. Then why? what's the point?! I did my research, and this is what I found: ¨Toothpaste comes in a box because it looks better¨. That’s right, and If we consider each person using an average of 3 tubes per year, that´s more thank 900,000,000 useless boxes a year only in the United States. But, there are places where this is done differently, for example, Iceland. The same brands that sell millions of boxed toothpaste tubes in the USA, sell their product's without the box in Iceland. This means that it is 100% doable Step1: Buy only Toothpaste that comes without a box, I know it´s hard, but if we all do it, it will be hard only for a short time. So stick to it. Step 2: Tag on this campaign anyone you know that works in the government or in the toothpaste industry Step 3: Spread the word, share this information so that in one year from today, we can buy toothpastes everywhere without generation billions of tons of unnecessary garbage Sometimes it feels like we live in a society that is out of our control, but the truth is that big changes, start with ideas and motivation. Here is an idea, let's get rid of the toothpaste boxes. Are you in?

Stop Brands Using Unsustainable Palm Oil

These brands have stated that they will use sustainable palm oil, however they have not stuck to their promise. Rainforests absorb the largest amount of carbon from the atmosphere, around 2.2 Billion tonnes per year, constantly making the earth cooler. Sadly, more than 150 acres are lost every minute of every day, and an astounding 78 million acres are lost every year. By destructing these rainforests, we are increasing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere leading to higher climates. This is also known as climate change, which will lead to; more droughts/heat waves, changes in precipitation patterns, rising sea level (arctic areas will have no ice left), more intense natural disasters, low food security, and an increase in extinct/endangered plants and animals. Not only do palm oil plantations lead to climate change but they ruin the home of many animals such as orangutans (25 die everyday), tigers, elephants and rhinoceros which are endangered/critically endangered animals on the brink of extinction.  If you purchase from these brands, you are only supporting the problem. Stop using and supporting these brands, find alternatives. There are many apps and websites which can help you distinguish between good and bad products. We only have 12 years to fix this issue and if we don't do something about this now, then we will all have to suffer serious consequences. We have one Earth, let's look after it while we can. Sign this petition to stop the use of unsustainable palm oil, to save the habitat and animals affected. MAKE SURE YOU SHARE THIS PETITION TO SPREAD AWARENESS AND MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THESE BRANDS TO IGNORE US!

Brush up your act, Colgate! Design packaging that doesn't produce plastic waste!

Thank you for taking the time to make your views known to us. We share your concern about all issues involving protection of the environment. We have already made significant strides in honoring our commitment to environmentally safe packaging. As the leader in Oral Care, we are especially proud to share that, as the result of a breakthrough innovation; our global toothpaste laminate packaging is the most material efficient in the oral care category saving over 2,000 tons of plastic laminate annually while maintaining the product performance and integrity of our toothpaste. On an ongoing basis, we actively pursue technology relating to the development of more sustainable packages. A team of professionals within our company evaluates new package designs with a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) tool in order to optimize our packaging. In consultation with As You Sow, Colgate has developed new packaging sustainability commitments for 2020. RECYCLABILITY As part of our 2020 Sustainability Strategy, Colgate is committing resources to enable breakthrough innovation in oral care packaging. We are also committing to work with stakeholders to drive continuous improvement in local recycling systems. We have already teamed up with TerraCycle, and they have created almost 10,000 Oral Care Brigade locations across the US to collect used toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes which will be turned into new products and materials, keeping that waste from landfill. To learn more about this program and TerraCycle visit http://www.terracycle.com/en-S/brigades/search.html?commit=Search&query=colgate RECYCLED CONTENT Colgate is committed to increasing the recycled content of our packaging across all product categories. We have already exceeded our 2015 goal to increase recycled content of our packages by 20 percent by 2015. We will increase the recycled content in our packaging to 50 percent by 2020. HEAVY METALS We have eliminated all heavy metals from the inks and colorants used in our packages. We believe in continuous improvement and will continue to look for ways we can help protect our planet.
