Zipper Tube / Tube for reuse and saving

Zipper Tube
Zipper Tube

It always takes efforts to squeeze the remainder out of tubes. Somehow, the remainder still stays at side and neck inside the tube and can’t avoid the destiny of being disposed of. Zipper Tube is contained with a zipper at the bottom of tube. When it is running out of contents, the zipper can be opened to absorb air, which makes the tube not vacuumed at all. Therefore, we can shake the Zipper Tube to let the remainder gather at the mouth of tube, and then one more easily squeezing is required to let the remainder out of tube, pushed by air. Zipper Tube is not only reusable, but eco-friendly.
