Beyond natural toothpaste
We're passionate about making the best natural toothpaste on earth. As botanical ingredient lovers and eco-friendly people, we know how important it is to find sustainable ways of living that don't harm nature or our environment - which is why at Truthpaste HQ, we look into all things zero waste, organic ingredients, and natural health & wellbeing.
Covid and convenience shopping has wreaked havoc through the zero waste community with many stores finding that they just aren’t getting the footfall they need to keep up with the ever-rising costs of running an independent business.
With many stores now providing a delivery service to compete with supermarket chains, it’s sad to see the general population continuing to go with large supermarket chains.
If you’ve been on a ‘going green’ kick, you will have already seen our beginners guide to going zero-waste. But what about when it comes to recycling? . Recycling contamination is a serious issue in the UK (check out our blog on it).
Step up your green game with these helpful tips
Although Energy Saving week was established a good eight years ago, it is arguably even more relevant today. Energy bills have risen on an unprecedented scale in the UK between 2021/2022.
The focus of energy saving week looks to address the rising cost of energy to the householder whilst simultaneously drawing attention to the benefits to the planet by taking just a few simple steps to reduce output.
If like many, the extent of your knowledge about myrrh is that some mages once came a very long way to offer it at an impromptu baby shower then you aren’t alone. Its rich, musky smell is used in incense and perfumes across the globe and it has a long and well-documented history for its medicinal values.
There is so much more to myrrh than just a lovely smell.
Buying organic is better for the health of us, our wildlife, and our environment. But choosing organic foods over non-organic can often add a lot more to our weekly food bills. These 5 handy tips will help you to eat organic without breaking the bank!
Whilst Organic is a term that is largely linked to farming and food, it’s a subject that we are passionate about at Truthpaste HQ. We actively look for ingredients that are certified organic to go in our award-winning formula.
Organic farming is so much more than just ‘no pesticides’. This carefully designed method of farming food sustains soils, biodiversity, ecosystems and people.
More and more shops are springing up offering zero-waste solutions for our homes. Importantly, more customers are actively seeking products that ditch the plastic in favour of reusable and recyclable, plastic-free alternatives.
Is this enough, though? Well, it’s a good start. The pressure is starting to build on big businesses and conglomerates to start considering their impact on landfills and the climate crisis.
What are Bioplastics? There isn’t a short answer to this. The term bioplastic is a blanket term used that can cover a range of plastic-like materials, and new types of bioplastics being developed all the time. Find out the differences in how they are made, and how it's not clear cut on what can be recycled and what is biodegradable.
Did you know that our oceans cover 70% of the worlds surface? They produce at least 50% of the worlds oxygen and absorb around 30% of the carbon dioxide we humans produce. Our oceans are home to the most biodiverse places on earth.
Today is World Oceans Day. Whilst it’s a great opportunity to highlight the issues and problems our seas are facing on a global scale, we must also take the time to see a positive movement and how we can get involved to help.
With the devastating effects right on our doorstep, we see the clear need for social change. We need to take responsibility urgently, as individuals and as a business to be proactive about making that change a reality.
The benefits of leading the way to a more sustainable and eco conscious business extend the world over, whilst bringing us together on a local level, as a community.
The alarming lack of transparency around recycling practices means that well-meaning households are inadvertently guilty of contamination. WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) report that in the last year, around 525,000 tonnes of recycling was rejected due to contamination.
What is the cost to the environment and the councils, and what can we all do to reduce recycling contamination?
Choosing plastic-free products are a great way of reducing your waste. Its also good to choose to buy bulk when possible (part of the reason we discontinued our smaller jars).
We look at the benefits of glass, and the advantages of recycling it.
We plant trees to restore ecosystems and livelihoods whilst increasing protection against the extremes of climate change in multiple regions of the tropical forest belt. We do this in ways that recreate and restore natural forest ecosystems using indigenous species, fostering local knowledge and skills, and promoting women's participation. We strive to do it intelligently, appropriately, respectfully and successfully.
