You know how a regular tube of toothpaste becomes increasingly difficult to squeeze as the contents diminish? See, designer tandem Sang Min Yu and Wong Sang Lee have hit upon a novel idea. Think toothpaste packaging along the lines of a milk carton. The squeeze ease is still there, but in such a container, it’s now more efficient at dispensing the paste.
Sang and Wong believe that if their concept ever goes into production it will do the world heaps of good. Not only is the package recyclable, but easier to manufacture, with less resulting waste—there’s no carton and rolled-up, flaccid tube to dispose of.
Instead of thinking up a fancy brand name they’ve decided on Savepaste for the meantime. Will this catch on? Hopefully it does. If it doesn’t, maybe it’s best if we all went back to chewing twigs. Lots of people in developed countries vouch for primitive, all-natural oral hygiene anyway.
