REDUSE / Toothpaste package accessory


The original shape of hole on the toothpaste package is round, which always makes the users easily squeeze over amount and then becomes a waste. However, too much toothpaste cannot help to clean teeth better, but may have side effect to human body.
REDUSE means reducing your use. It is an attached part which can directly be clipped to the original hole of the toothpaste package. REDUSE simply narrows the hole into a line, use a simple way to let the user squeeze the appropriate amount of toothpaste. Moreover, by applying the tilt shape and the elastic attribute of the plastic, REDUSE can stably attach on the package itself without falling.
