About the Programme


Find out how you can make your own toothpaste using a very simple ingredient – eggshells! Not only are you able to repurpose the eggshells to reduce waste and save some money, there is even some research to show that the calcium in the eggshell powder has the potential to help in the remineralisation of enamel to protect your teeth. Be kind to the earth and to your teeth at the same time! Register now.
