DIY TOOTHPASTE

Ingredients: 

6 tbsp coconut oil 

6 tbsp baking soda 

25 drops of essential oil (mint or eucalyptus and grapefruit) 

1 tsp stevia (or more if you like it sweeter) 

Instructions: 

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Use a whip to mix it really well and give it a light creamy texture. 

2. Pour into a mason jar and seal it up until ready to use. 

Microbeads 

Microbeads, those tiny plastic beads included in personal care products for exfoliating power, have been popular for a number of years, with a growing number of companies sneaking them into toothpaste, body scrubs, soap, and more. 

That’s despite evidence that they cause significant environmental problems, an issue that’s led a number of states to ban them or seriously consider such bans in order to protect the environment. 

One of the problems with microbeads is that their size allows them to pass through filtration systems intended to trap debris and pollutants we don’t want to be released into the environment. 

Whether people are taking showers or brushing their teeth over the sink, the wastewater passes through processing facilities, and the microbeads are flushed out right along with the clean water when it’s released into waterways.
