I had our home made toothpaste in a glass jar, but Kyle was concerned about germ mixing if we were both dunking our toothbrush in. I have always been lax on things like that because I think of the multitude of other ways our germs are mixing, but to make him feel better, I put it in a plastic squeeze bottle. It was good solution in theory, but we had previously used the bottle to store home made salad dressing and had taken on the flavour. I remember the salad dressing being tasty but it’s not so delicious to brush your teeth with. So I had to ditch that batch and make a new one. It’s in another glass jar with a spoon beside it for us to use. The good news is the second batch is even better than the first and it no longer seperates.
I finally bought a keeper and I am mostly happy with my purchase except that it came in plastic! There is a little pamphlet explaining how much waste menstrual products usually cause and how the keeper is the most environmentally friendly choice because you can use it for 10 years and it is biodegradable. I doubt the plastic it came in is though and I bet there’s even more of that in landfill. I really don’t understand because it comes with a beautiful cotton carrying case- why not just sell it in that?
