Lakewood, CO — Approximately 540 million non-recyclable toothpaste tubes are dumped in landfulls each year in the U.S. alone. To address this problem, Archtek Inc. launched Toothpaste Tablets at the National Dental Society Midwinter Meeting in Chicago in February, 2010.

The new concept of toothpaste in a tablet form was well received by the dental community. The response was often, “Why has this not been done before?”

Archtek’s Toothpaste Tablets represent an environmentally friendly alternative to the millions of tubes that are dumped in landfills each year in the U.S. Unlike paste in a tube, after each unit dose tablet is used, the bottle is fully recyclable. Furthermore, with no microbial transmission from swiping the end of a tube onto a brush, the Toothpaste Tablet is a significant sanitary improvement in the daily routine of brushing teeth.

Each tablet contains a patented cranberry extract additive which helps in the reduction of plaque, as well as an ingredient which is proven to reduce the formation of cavities.

Scott Jacobs, Archtek’s president, states, “Archtek’s Toothpaste Tablets are the only other option to paste out there in the marketplace and they offer many more advantages. The pop-up cap and the tablet format are easier to use for anyone with physical challenges or for the elderly. There is no paste mess in drawers or counters, and the bottle of Toothpaste Tablets is allowed in carry-on luggage at airports. A person only needs to pack the amount needed for travel!”

Archtek’s Toothpaste Tablets contain 60 tablets and are available in three flavors — cool mint, bubblegum, and orange mint. With 70% less weight and 40% less volume, Toothpaste Tablets are an easy on-the-go alternative to paste.
