I really like Frau Fowler tooth & gum powder. You can find it at Whole Foods (and probably Natural Grocers, Sprouts, etc.) and it last me at least 6 just need a small sprinkle on a wet toothbrush.

Then I use those tiny nalgene bottles from the travel section to store it. Super lightweight! 

I love that the original container is in a recyclable container rather than trying to track down a terracycle center/box that takes toothpaste tubes. 


That sounds interesting. But although I knew about most of the things in this thread, truth be told, I still use a travel-size tube of Crest and a sawed-off toothbrush.
