牙膏,對很多人來說是日常生活的一部分。一日兩次,每次擠出約2cm。以一家四口為例,一支標準裝牙膏大概能用上一個月,但你知道剩下的牙膏包裝會被如何處置嗎?

JupYeah 執嘢 : 「原來一般的牙膏包裝含鋁,故不能回收,塑膠又需要 450 年分解。」

此外,牙膏內的氟化物(fluoride)是種具爭議性的物質,曾有文章指出其毒性會導致癌症、傷害神經系統、甚至令牙齒和骨骼變得更脆弱。其實科學界天天有新研究發現,我們不能樣樣聽從,但如果你真的害怕了,可以考慮Micro Carbon Operation 微碳行動 分享的自製牙膏試試看。

材料:
3湯匙椰子油,3湯匙食用梳打粉,25滴薄荷油,1小包代糖(如有需要),2湯匙植物性甘油
做法:
先將椰子油和梳打粉拌勻,再加入其他材料,拌勻後放於密封瓶,用時以潔淨乾燥的牙刷取少量。

If you’re sick of fluoride based toothpaste, who can blame you?

Fluoride is widely touted to protect our teeth, but it’s actually a poisonous chemical that causes cancer, damages our nervous system, and even creates weak teeth and bones. Fluoride is common in rat poison and the Nazis used to put it in the prisoners’ water – because it’s known to placate people and make them easier to control. Knowing this – if you haven’t already done so – it’s probably time to dump your fluoride toothpaste. There are certainly many brands of fluoride-free toothpaste available at your local health food store or almost as easy, and likely better for you, you can just make your own.
