Overview

  Why Toothpaste?

Why Toothpaste?

Toothpaste and their packaging have harmful effects on the environment. Customers consume more toothpaste than required per session. Furthermore, it causes harm to marine life, and gets dumped in the landfill. To solve these problems, the team came up with Morning Dew toothpaste and dispenser. 

Discrete vs Continuous Approach

The idea of discrete use of a resource helps better understand level of consumption and in a larger scale, our impact on the environment. This idea led us to focus on re-imagining toothpaste as well as the dispensing mechanism.

Final Designs

The Morning Dew Toothpaste, or pellets would be in the shape of tiny balls that become viscous upon contact with water. The rotating dispenser container is carefully designed to dispense only one pellet at a time. It also has a toothbrush dock for conveniently placing the pellet onto the brush.
