Laminar / Reusable Toothpaste Tube


Laminar is a reusable toothpaste tube. The tube is fluoride and dishwasher safe. When empty, you simply take Laminar to a drug store, plug it into a refill station, and get your new toothpaste.

Over a billion plastic toothpaste tubes are thrown each year, many of them find their way into the ocean. Laminar makes toothpaste packaging from disposable to infinitely reusable.

Laminar reduces cost by cutting down packaging and transport; while keeping the same toothpaste volume and providing accessibility features such as grip options for smaller hands, no-grip wall mount for the elderly and disabled, and a foldable plunger for traveling.
