We’re always looking to make quip as sustainable as possible. See the progress we’ve made below!
We use soft, round-tipped nylon bristles because they are recommended by dentists and the most effective at cleaning. While our brush heads are not recyclable at this time, by just disposing of the brush head, you create less waste!
Since we allow the battery to be removed and replaced, this means the quip handle lasts for life.
At present, we ship you a new AAA battery every 3 months in your refill pack along with brush heads, but we always encourage “going green” with rechargeable AAA batteries. Just reach out to our support team after you purchase your quip at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will adjust your future orders accordingly.
Our cover is made to last with a screw-in cap for easy cleaning and a reusable micro-suction strip — it also is made of recyclable plastic.
Our toothpaste packaging guides correct usage, and explains how long each tube will last. This saves up to 3x the waste.
Our floss dispenser is reusable and refillable. By only refilling the string instead of disposing of the entire dispenser, you create less plastic waste! The pre-marked string lets you know how much to floss use each time, which also helps reduce waste.
Our brushes and refill heads come in clear plastic tubes that can be reused as storage or recycled, like a water bottle. You can see our blog post here for some creative ideas on how to reuse.
As for our floss, both the reusable floss dispenser and floss refills come in recyclable paper tubes.
