Ecap / Toothpaste cap


Microplastics that are not filtered out of sewage are becoming a problem.It destroys the marine ecosystem.Marine life eats microplastics and comes to our table.Some of the things we have are used more than we need and release a lot of microplastics.It's toothpaste. We usually squeeze the toothpaste into the whole size of a toothbrush hat.However, the appropriate amount should be less than half the size of a toothbrush hat.Ecap' changes the area of the toothpaste hole to a smaller size.This reduces the excessive use of toothpaste, prolongs the life of toothpaste, and reduces the microplastic emissions of toothpaste.
