How to Make Organic Toothpaste at Home

We don’t really think about saving the environment or caring for our health when we brush our teeth. It’s a daily routine that we take up without giving too much thought to it. We should take into consideration that we are brushing our teeth with parabens, petroleum, synthetic flavorings, mineral oil, propylene glycol and synthetic fragrances. That doesn’t sound too healthy anymore. Commercial toothpaste might also be tested on animals, which is another reason to avoid purchasing them. The chemicals used in toothpaste are actually responsible for drying out tissues in the mouth and possibly lead to canker sores. An excess of fluoride can even cause causer or renal or kidney failure, amongst other things. Did you know that some chemicals found in mouthwashes can also be found in bathroom disinfectants?
Why don’t you try making your own organic toothpaste at home? It is easier than you think and you can avoid buying the tube made of plastic which is another relief for the environment and one less product made of plastic.
Take a look at the following video and you will see how easy it is to make your own toothpaste at home and safe money doing it!


Currently, humanity is facing three major global challenges: the Global Financial Crisis, the Food Crisis and the Climate Crisis. The challenges are inter-related and need to be jointly addressed. However, international cooperation is lacking and global leaders and decision-makers have yet to adopt clear and focused practical measures for implementing sustainable development on a global scale.

The Global Financial Crisis
The global economic prospects are marked by uncertainties and vulnerabilities. The fiscal crisis in Europe has intensified and its growth is slow. The effects have spread to developing as well as high-income countries with a decline of capital flows to developing countries by almost half in comparison to the previous year. Growth in major developing countries has slowed down. These developments might reinforce each other and lead to more instability. High deficits and debts in Japan, Europe and the United States represent major challenges that could lead to adverse shocks. According to the World Bank, in the event of another global crisis similar to the one in 2008/09, countries would not be able to recover as quickly as they possess fewer fiscal resources today than in 2008.
