Tears of the earth / Toothpaste

Tears of the earth

Water is one of the resources that people rely on for survival, but with the development of science and technology, people concerning about water waste is on the wane.Tears of the Earth is a toothpaste designed for children.Toothpaste decreases over the course of use. We use this feature to simulate the diminishing water resources on Earth, so that children can notice the waste of water in the process of brushing their teeth. It is of good educational significance to cultivate children's habit of saving water from an early age.
