Ordo Complete Care Toothpaste
Ordo's complete care toothpaste tubes are recyclable made out of HDPE.
In the UK Ordo's toothpaste tubes can be recycled through normal HDPE recycling streams. At the time of writing, 92% of UK councils recycle HDPE, this is the same recycling stream plastic milk bottles go through. If your council can recycle milk bottles/HDPE, the tubes can be recycled in the same stream.
Steps to recycle:
- Remove the cap from the toothpaste
- Squeeze any excess toothpaste out of the tube.
- Place tube in the recycling.
The toothpaste tube cap is made of PP (polypropylene). This can be recycled through streams that accept PP.
If purchased in a store, boxes are used to package the tubes for protection and easier transport. The boxes that contain the tube are recyclable and can go through normal card recycling streams.
