Better Toothpaste for our Amphibians

I spent a few minutes in the toothpaste aisle of my nearby drug mart today. I really wasn't sure if triclosan, that environmentally harmful ingredient I blogged about earlier, would be found in all mainstream toothpaste or not.


As it turns out, half if not more of the products did not have triclosan. So avoiding the toxin is as simple as checking the front label of the toothpaste box and making sure triclosan is not mentioned. If there is triclosan, it's labelled as a medicinal/active ingredient, next to the fluoride compounds.
